Our full motto is: appreciating, nurturing, and using the products of the Southwest. But you don’t have to live in the Southwest to enjoy our site and savor our foods!
We are a diverse group of individuals with a wide range of cooking and foraging knowledge. All of us try to live in an earth-friendly, sustainable fashion.
All of our writers live or have lived side by side with Native peoples, and have learned ancient ways of using the bounty of the region.
About Our Food
Some of us have food sensitivities, plus some downright allergies! This just means that we often offer gluten-free options, plus many suggestions for substitutions.
Much of our cooking is not the traditional Southwestern-style. Two of our writers believe it shouldn’t hurt to eat. That said – we include ways to savor some chilitepin (the hottest pepper there is and native to Sonoran Desert canyons)!
