Our Buckwheat Cookies are Deliciously Satisfying!

"As a baker, my dream was to create a truly unique cookie. I chose buckwheat for its distinct taste and wholesomeness.  By combining it with sweet almonds, tangy dried fruit, and caramelly non-refined sugars, we created a simply delicious, satisfying, wheat-free treat.  Once you taste the crunchy groats, you'll be hooked!"

Unconventional Use of Buckwheat by SF Chefs

Last week, Tasting Table posted a story on San Francisco chefs who are using buckwheat creatively - gnocchi, profiteroles, and ice cream (Against the Grain). It motivated me to eat at Central Kitchen, the trendy Mission eatery, to try their "lilting buckwheat ice cream".

Cooked Buckwheat Groats

We love the crunch the groats give to the Buckwheat Cookies, but also love the soft, lightly starchy taste of cooked groats.  Milder than cooked kasha (which are toasted groats), and nuttier than rice, cooked groats are a great side dish to any meal.  With the first of the cherry tomatoes and corn on the cob arriving to market, here's a simple recipe, maybe one you can prepare on the 4th of July.  No doubt it will taste great with

Cheese Plus Market Now Sells Buckwheat Cookies

In our quest to have people try our one-of-a-kind Buckwheat Cookies, we were out on a sunny Saturday afternoon with a dozen other Bay Area food artisans at Cheese Plus Market, on the corner of Polk and Pacific, at their annual food festival.  Our friend Hannah was by my side singing the praise.  It felt great to be with food artisans who believe in delicious quality foods, and even mo
