Inside the creation process of something beautiful

A sudden change in the weather (Rain! Lots of it!) has got me working inside today, focussing on designing more labels for all the fermentations, food-preservations and brews I am currently obsessed with. To pay attention to the appearance of what I’m creating foodwise to me is always an inextricable part of the process and I enjoy gravitating towards beauty instinctively.

Probably driven by the amount of work I put in designing the packaging of our homemade products, people often ask me if we sell our stuff, without even having tasted the product in question. I guess eye appeal really is buy appeal. It’s always a huge compliment, for sure. And I’m definitely creating to please others too, but that is never about money.

My personal satisfaction and gratification are contained inside the creation process of something beautiful. And tasty, of course. It usually starts with that.

Trying to make ones life sustainable is more than a personal choice and almost automatically leads to a multitude of decisions you have never even thought of before. On this website we share what works for us, or woefully no longer works, obviously without claiming the same for you.

We hope that our journey towards a supplementary comprehensive celebration of nature’s beauty might just clear a pathway forward for you too, perhaps challenges a revealing reconsideration, or simply provides for an equally indispensable diversion.

Can we change the world through food? We believe we can and we support Slow Food, a global movement of local communities and activists across more than 160 countries. Together we defend cultural and biological diversity, promote food education and the transfer of traditional knowledge and skills.
