Why Realish Food? Do I want you to eat food that’s only real-ish? No. That’s not it. I want you to relish real food. Get it? Real + Relish = Realish.
Relish has a double meaning.
something savory or appetizing added to a meal, as pickles or olives
to make pleasing to the taste
My mission is to get people to eat REAL food. I want to show you how to buy ingredients and make beautiful, real food. And I want you to (you guessed it) RELISH it. I’ll even teach you how to make a relish or two along the way.
I am excited to start this blog now. Spring has sprung and the farmer’s markets will be overflowing with an abundance of local, fresh, seasonal ingredients readily available to you.
I’m not a nutritionist. I’m not an expert in organic or sustainable food. I’m not waging war on the packaged food industry. I’m just someone who wants to eat well and feed my family the best food that I can find.
Along the way, I’ll introduce new ingredients and I’ll show you how to use them. I’ll share some of my favorite recipes. And eventually I’ll tell you the reasons why I cook heart-healthy, diabetic-friendly, allergy-free, and gluten-free options; sometimes all at once. And I’ll show you how delicious that can be. I’ll even show you vegetarian and vegan options that will delight the carnivores in your life. Okay, it might not delight them but it will make them complain less when you omit the meat from their meals.
