It’s in our unique flavors and the way we work with local farmers; it’s our reminder to honor our cultural roots - to us, harmony is a way of life. We believe in delicious, health & earth-conscious food as a means to inspire positive change.
Let’s join hands in the movement towards a more sustainable community.
How it all began:
My husband Sam and I had just moved to Kauai when our friend was care-taking a farm on the island. We spent a lot of time there learning about the food forest, inspired by the fresh harvest our friend would often send home with us.
Meanwhile, my Maman Joon would call to check on me - she wanted to make sure I was cooking with the Persian market ingredients she mailed us. She was always reminding me how important it is to keep cooking, to keep our culture alive. So, I made the classic Persian dish kuku sabzi with greens from the farm, chicken eggs from our neighbor, and spices from Maman Joon.
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 the passion would lead me, and I’m so happy I did. I hope you feel the love in all that we offer through Harmonious Roots.
