Our special little place and sister restaurant, Charlotte & the Quail, is reemerging from a winter break and our team is super excited to start creating in the kitchen once again!
If you don't know about C&Q, you should. It's the location that started our company - humble beginnings overtaken with big dreams. You can learn more about the story and the cute creature behind the name HERE, but the most important thing to know is that our menus, at both Nourish and C&Q, are inspired using the same holistic nutrition philosophies - each space communicating the ideas in their own way to intertwine with the surroundings.
To many, Charlotte & the Quail, gives that beloved cottage in the country feel - it's an escape-from-the-busy sort of place without having to venture far at all (It's right near Camosun Interurban). The garden setting offers a tranquil space to connect. Many of our guests use it as their hide away.
Our pantry goods at both locations started budding last year with a few of our favourite menu staples available for you to purchase, including the dairy free cashew cheese, the gluten free buckwheat seed loaf, the organic chicken bone broth - 2017 is the year the pantry shop will really bloom. Each location offering a slightly different extension on the already popular foundation. We will share the progress of each space with you as it takes shape. We do have some very exciting plans in the works.
With the chill still in the air, our organic chicken bone broth will be simmering on the stove regularly at both locations. Nourish has both organic chicken and grass fed beef available hot from the broth bar or frozen for your home. Charlotte & the Quail has rich organic bone broth simmered with garden herbs. We use it as the base for some of our soups ($5.5 | bowl), serving it hot in mugs to sip on ($4.25 | 8oz mug), and packaging it in containers to for you to take home ($8 | 750ml).
Why so much focus on this item in our company? Simple. It is so good for you! Bone broth has gained immense popularity over the past few years - with research now confirming why so many of us find comfort in yummy chicken soup. High in vitamins & minerals, easily digestible proteins, and collagen - bone broth is packed with powerful healing properties. We love having this as a staple in our kitchen and are so happy to be able to be offer a supply for use in your kitchen.
