Seasonal Recipes. Local Flavors. Sustainable Ingredients.
We are often told to eat our greens, but even more importantly we should be taught to eat green. The fact is that a healthy life is based not just in the nutrients you eat, but also in the growing, processing, and packaging of your food as well. And that is precisely what Tarheel Foodie is all about: creating wholesome meals from sustainable farm products– food that is kind not only to you, but to the environment as well. And that is the key to a delicious, nutritious life.
My name is Susan Sink, and my conversion to organic, sustainable foods started more than twenty years ago in an effort to provide my children with healthy food. With a formal education in Environmental Design from the NCSU College of Design, I was given the foundation for creating a more sustainable life, starting with the restoration of my first home (Portridge Plantation c. 1790) in Louisburg, NC. Since then, my passion for sustainability has extended beyond aspects in the domestic sphere. In 2011, I worked with the Appalachian State University (ASU) Sustainable Building Program, helping them design recipes and menus for the Department of Energy’s Solar Decathlon Competition. The menus were created with the potential for great flexibility in order to account for the energy fluctuations from solar power and locally available farm products.
Tarheel Foodie gives open demonstrations at local farmers markets addressing the need for healthy cooking and preservation techniques to all age groups. Using all sustainable ingredients from local farms, in-home private demonstrations, market tours, and meal preparation are customized to fit each client..
