There's more to Harmonious Roots than delicious food.
We’re about living in harmony with the land and with each other, while honoring our cultural roots.
We’re about sharing passion to ignite positive change - and our passion is nourishing food that’s sourced from our local landscape as much as possible.
How it all began:
My husband Sam and I had just moved to Kauai when our friend was care-taking a farm on island. He’d teach us about the plants and share boxes of goodies from the land.
Meanwhile, my Maman Joon would call to check on me - she wanted to make sure I was cooking with the Persian market ingredients she sent me. I wasn’t, so she’d keep nagging me to cook, “Honey, iz vehhry eemportant!” OK, ok. So, I made kuku sabzi with the greens from the farm and the chicken eggs from our neighbor.
Something lit up in me. The special connection from land to farmer to nourishing meal. The loving familiarity I was missing from my family. Sharing something new with others.
I undoubtedly knew I needed to see where this would take me, and I’m so happy I did. I hope you feel the love in all that we offer through Harmonious Roots.
