If you’re familiar with SHED in downtown Healdsburg, then you know how incredible EVERYTHING is. Farm-fresh local produce, beautiful kitchen ware, pantry items and all those wonderful meals prepared on site. And what makes everything so delicious? A talented team + extra touches of ingredients developed and used inside their kitchen. So for the first time SHED is bottling them up so you can bring these flavors home with you. The new Pantry line is a collection of spices, powders, salt blends, peppers, pickles, preserves and shrubs—all inspired by what’s used everyday at SHED Cafe.
I recently joined a luncheon with the SHED team, including co-owner Cindy Daniel and Executive Chef Perry Hoffman. We learned more about how this line came together and experienced the flavors in some Spring-inspired drinks and dishes. In addition to educating folks on good farming, good cooking and good eating, Cindy and Perry wanted to show ways of preserving seasonal bounty and flavors through canning, drying, pickling and fermenting. It’s been a dream of theirs and now the new products are available in-store and online.
