Hospitality comes with many dynamic challenges. If you’re anything like us, you also have experienced a rise in special dietary needs amongst those around your table. It can be difficult to be the one with the specific restrictions and it can also be difficult for the host! If you’re anything like us, you also have a love of food—good food! It’s hard to find that sweet space where diet-specific foods meet fine, crave-worthy foods.
An important part of time around the table is making sure that all feel welcome. When we are facing dietary restrictions, it is important to create an atmosphere of inclusion but often, instead, we resort to a ‘yours and ours’ mentality. When it comes to identifying the foods that everyone will love, but everyone can also eat, we panic! So many choices, yet not enough choices! So much information, yet not enough money to sample all the brands. What if I told you that we pride ourselves on finding brands to bridge the gap? We find the products that you can put out that will be so good, all of your guests will enjoy them, but so intentionally selected that everyone can.
When we found Maine Crisp, we were drawn to them for a number of reasons.
1) They present themselves as the perfect charcuterie pairing, which we agree with!
2) Their kindness goes before them in all that they do!
3) They are a completely gluten-free company, making it safe for me and a lot of YOU!
4) Not only is their marketing and product stunning, but the flavor is beyond compare!
It has been a no-brainer for us to work closely with them in our own business and stock up on their products for our home! Whereas people often think of gluten-free as stale cardboard or flavorless, these crackers come in and set a new tone for gluten-free! Crunchy, sweet, nutty, flavorful, gourmet! Everything you want in a cracker, these are! We often find ourselves eating them alone as a snack, and even more, we use them in our classes as we teach how to curate the perfect charcuterie board.
I was living in Thailand, longed for community, starting opening my door and filling my table. Now I’m living ‘charcuterie’ as a way of life and teaching what I learned about living intentionally everyday.
