When the sun is high and the summer garden is overflowing with bounty, it is time to gather basil for pesto. We take our pesto, fresh with basil and garlic from Capay Valley's Riverdog Farm, and toss it with kale and sunflower seeds before low-temperature dehydration. What results is a delightful chip that touches memory and fantasy and energizes our bodies with pure, raw, summer sun.
A little bite of a little chip and one is transported to a picnic in the French countryside where deep and pure are the words du jour. Like the sauce with which it is decked, this energizing chip can be enjoyed solo as a snack or added to any and every dish for a ephemeral hit of summer.
Like G-G-Grandmother, we work with food from local farmers and wildcrafters we love, and the occasional international fair-trader for ultra specialty items. Our kale chips bridge old and new worlds with recipes inspired by traditional French cuisine and modern raw food preparation techniques. Our primary focus is the kale chip, a miracle superfood that can be enjoyed anywhere ~ as a boost on a hike, as a next-level treat at dinnertime, or as a pick-me up at office functions.Read more
