Ava Jane is the inspiration for our artisanal food. She’s also our daughter, whose zest for life inspires us to keep sharing our kitchen secrets with the world. The journey began with Ava’s Nana, who sparked our love affair with all things edible. From tending to her garden, to long nature walks, to sacred family dinners, she taught us to infuse our life and food with the same values of patience, integrity and honesty. No shortcuts.
And then came our engagement in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, many years ago. It led to annual surf vacations ever since. A few years ago, we discovered hand-harvested sea salt produced by local entrepreneurs called “salineros” (salt-farmers). After successfully bringing this wonderfully pure and flavorful salt to kitchens across America, our purpose became clear: we would spend our days searching for even more hidden gastronomical treasures. And sharing the joy of the most unusually delicious, nutritious and wholesome food Mother Earth has to offer.
