Today, I'm excited to take you on a behind-the-scenes tour of Front Porch Pickings' very own commercial kitchen. As someone deeply passionate about reducing food waste and savoring the finest flavors our community has to offer, this kitchen is truly where the magic happens.
We recently added a commercial oven to our kitchen and we've been able to ramp up production! This kitchen isn't just a space for culinary creativity; it's the heart of our mission to connect you with the best of local agriculture while championing sustainability. But, one of the most incredible aspects of our kitchen is its just one more way we tackle food waste head-on.
Our kitchen is a hub of culinary magic, where surplus ingredients get a second chance to shine. Imagine a surplus of perfectly ripe tomatoes from one of our local farms. Instead of letting them go to waste, we turn them into rich, flavorful tomato sauces for lasagna that graces our boxes and, ultimately, your dinner table. Those slightly bruised but still fantastic apples? They become the star of our irresistible apple pie fillings and granola.
When you savor an FPP made delectable, you're not just enjoying incredible flavors; you're also participating in a movement that values our planet's resources and supports local growers. We invite you to join us in this culinary adventure, where sustainability and taste come together in every bite.
