As time goes on, more and more people have begun to crack down on establishments that don’t use fresh ingredients. Visiting an establishment that uses fresh ingredients provides an elevated experience and aesthetic. There are even restaurants that will pretend or say they use fresh ingredients to bring in more customers. Fresh ingredients are something that can’t be mimicked or replaced.
That’s what makes places like Cannoli Kitchen so popular. Cannoli Kitchen makes sure to use the freshest, local ingredients for every meal we make. Why do these ingredients matter so much? Wouldn’t buying produce at the local market be the same as buying it from a local farm? The quick answer is no, There are a few reasons why buying local, fresh ingredients is the most important of any recipe you make.
Having to eat food used to be a utilitarian action since food equals fuel. Today, cooking and eating are much more than that. It can be seen as a sensory experience similar to watching a show or listening to music. The quality of ingredients used can be the difference between an amazing-tasting salad and a bland, tasteless salad.
This is why Cannoli Kitchen only uses the freshest ingredients for each order we make. Fresh ingredients make the meat juicier, vegetables more vibrant, and sauces more flavorful. When the best ingredients are used, there’s no need to overcompensate. We let our food do the talking.
Farmers are the backbone of all the different foods we eat. Purchasing from local farmers supports them and allows them to continue to produce amazing ingredients. Not buying local produce would leave us with monolithic agriculture and lackluster ingredients.
Eating fresh ingredients is better for your taste buds and local farmers. It’s always much better for our bodies. In massive agriculture practices, produce and other foods are sprayed down with chemicals, and animals are given steroids and hormones in order to keep up with demand.
These ingredients are also harvested before they are fully ripe so they will travel better. This means you are losing nutrients and taste and consuming unnecessary chemicals and hormones.
Using local products puts an emphasis on local sourcing. Massive shipments of ingredients require the use of ships and planes that consume massive amounts of fuel. This has a huge negative impact on the environment.
These are only a few of the reasons why fresh ingredients are so much better for you and the world around you. Come experience fresh ingredients and amazing food at Cannoli Kitchen today!
