How it all Began!
"To eat is a necessity, but to eat intelligently is an art!" - Francois De La Rochefoucauld
Our story began when we started looking for alternatives apart from rice and wheat as staples in our daily meals. Our reading indicated that millets have been the super foods of our ancestors as far back as 4,500 B.C. Millet cultivation reduced significantly during the green revolution, when wheat and rice took over as the popular staples available to the Indian consumer. However, changes in lifestyle and food habits have recently made people rethink their food options and go the more traditional route.
Boutique Foods was born out of the idea of reintroducing millets and other such lost super foods back into Indian households.
The first batch of our millet flour was actually made in Shilpi’s kitchen using a recipe passed on through generations. Once we achieved the perfect phulkas and rotis out of our millet flour, we got more adventurous!
We hit upon the idea of baking our own handmade millet cookies. Thus we sourced the finest quality of white butter and the best millets. The challenge was to bake without using any artificial preservatives and additives, and yet be able to maintain taste and a reasonable shelf life. A lot of baking, tasting and sampling later we finally got it right. Our harshest critics – our kids loved the cookies!
We now have seven yummy flavours to suit a variety of tastes; however the basics behind the recipe remain the same – High quality millets, no preservatives, no artificial additives, only the best white butter and handmade with love!
Our journey has just begun – but as they say, well begun is half done!
