A Mount Salem Kitchen Product is Born Part 2: Creating a Recipe
So far, you got a behind-the-scenes look at how our Mount Salem Kitchen team comes up with our products, which are inspired by Central European flavors yet carried out with a fresh and local kick. Now, we’re ready to share the next step in our creative process – creating a recipe!
When creating the perfect recipe, we need three integral pieces – trial and error, outside inspiration, and lots of taste testing.
There have been times when on our first try, we know we have perfected that recipe we first could only muse about. But, there are other times when that recipe is still being perfected in our kitchen each and every time we adjust those seasonings, cooking time and cooking process.
When we create a recipe, we want to make sure that they can be replicated by our customers, have a consistent theme and, of course, those flavors and seasonings enhance our food to make it tastier every time.
Since we focus on Central European flavors, for some of our customers, our products take them back to making pierogi with their grandmother or enjoying Gołąbki with their family.
And yet for others, they reveal something else entirely – a brand new culinary scene for them to explore.
Our recipes do have one thing in common, though – they all have a story behind them, they have all been inspired by many and they are all from the heart. As our Chief Cooking Officer Agnes says, “You can always taste love in a good meal.”
