The food world around us is changing at incredible speed
We enjoy preparing meals for you and we especially enjoy creating new menu’s and innovating with recipes, for example this tasty Banana Truffle.
We also keep up with trends occurring in the industry to deliver you a unique product, for example Trend #3 is Farming!
It all starts with agriculture — where our food comes from. And that is about to change dramatically. By 2050, the world’s population is expected to reach 9.6 billion, with 65% of us living in urban areas; the USDA’s latest Census of Agriculture reports that the number of farmers under 35 is increasing, only the second time that’s happened since 1900.
This is a more direct farm-to-consumer connection as communities strive to get closer to nature. More consumers are opting for a plant-based diet. The FreshFoodNY app is a virtual farmers’ market where New Yorkers can purchase local food directly from farmers, fishermen and artisans.

We are adding KETO to our Menu!
“We are interested in feeding you healthful meals! Different people have different diets. One size doesn’t fit all. We try to accommodate some of the most common diets including paleo, gluten free, vegetarian, and now keto. Some of our meals are comfort food while other items are made for a specific diet. But for all our meals we strive to use fresh ingredients, high quality (no hormone) meats and wild seafood.!”
– The Christophe Family
What is KETO?
The keto diet is an eating plan that consists of up to 80 percent fat and little to no carbohydrates. Staples of the keto diet are fish, meat, eggs, dairy, oils, and green vegetables. Pasta, rice and other grains, potatoes, and fruits are strictly prohibited. A keto diet is well known for being a low carb diet, where the body produces ketones in the liver to be used as energy. It’s referred to as many different names – ketogenic diet, low carb diet, low carb high fat (LCHF), etc.
Keto works by changing the way the body turns food into energy. Typically, during digestion, we break down carbohydrates — like those found in the verboten foods above — into molecules of fructose, galactose, and glucose, the last of which serves as the body’s primary source of energy. When the body can’t draw it from carbohydrates — either because they’ve been cut out of the diet or because a person hasn’t eaten for a long time — it looks for other forms of energy. The keto diet deliberately places the body in a state of ketosis, where fat is released from cells and turned into ketones, the body’s plan B for energy production.
