Kit has been growing, harvesting and cooking fresh, organic foods since she was a child. She was raised in the countryside near her father's trout farm, where she learned to clean and scale fish at age 8. In the summer and fall, there were grandma's vegetables and fruits, eaten fresh, and preserved and savored in winter. Once a year the family processed a whole pig for roasting and for aspic, and after a regular tradition with her father and his hunting friends. Rabbits and wild game were delicately prepared and served for the whole family.
Throughout her life Kit has been gathering friends and family around the table for delicious meals and good conversation, often lasting late into the night. Schöne Heimat shares this natural way of finding joy, meaning, and beauty in life with you, our extended family.
Why Schöne Heimat? There is no exact English translation. Literally, it means “beauty of home,” but the deeper resonance is 'home where your heart is'.
