Whether you’re hosting or simply making the most of moments at home, there’s nothing more festive than gathering around a good meal. Sharing a meal is one of the most universal expressions of love, and when the ingredients also help to revitalize our soils with positive, regenerative ripple effects, the joy of food is truly boundless. And, this is never more true than during the holiday season!
This year, we’re expressing our gratitude for the connective powers of food, family and friends by rejoicing regeneratively - i.e. hosting loved ones for conversation and cheer, while enjoying bites and sips that help ensure a healthier, sparkling new year (for people and planet).
Here’s how we’re focused on making a positive impact to round 2022 out right, Chez Rowe:
And of course, no holiday party is not complete without a beautiful bountiful tablescape and a warmth-inducing food menu! Investing in local, seasonal ingredients and regeneratively farmed brands is our top tip for rejoicing regeneratively. We handpicked some of our favorite regenerative brands for a cocktail hour that is bursting with flavor and nutrition. Here’s a bit about why we personally love them, and a discount code for each to sweeten the season!
For a pre-dinner sip without the alcohol, Biodynamic Coffee is no ordinary bean. Their clean coffee is sourced exclusively from family-run estates and cooperatives using regenerative farming practices.
Started and run by coffee shop owners, the founders have invested their time in perfecting the details, seeing themselves as the custodians of the “last-mile” in the journey to deliver the cleanest, healthiest and tastiest cup of joe. It comes as little surprise then that their focus on vibrant, healthy soil and clean water makes for great tasting coffee; what we personally enjoy every morning at home as well (especially important these days with a toddler). Sip well through the season with 15% off your first order on biodynamiccoffee.com with code MERRYCOFFEE15 at check out!
