Hi, my name is Adéle le Roux and welcome to my online shop. The name for my home-based business was taken from my maiden name Kirsten, and honours my late farther, a great vegetable farmer.
Growing up on a vegetable farm in the Boland, I learnt as a child to value fresh air and wholesome, real foods. This general appreciation of good, basic living led me to a degree in consumer studies and ultimately to become a chef on a wine estate.
Some years later, I married a winemaker. With two beautiful boys to keep us busy all the time, my earlier training and experiences qualify me to assure that food in the house is nutritious, healthy and delicious.
I love wholesome and simplified cooking that accentuates the flavour of real ingredients. This love led me to source ingredients for my family and due to a demand for fresh goods, I established my small business.
We source from small-scale local farmers and businesses and as far as possible we source organically, free range and hormone free produce.
The hastened lifestyle of modern society can easily convince us that manufactured, refined and mass-produced, flavour- and supplement-enhanced foods are the only way to feed a growing and active family. This is just not true. Healthy raw ingredients are the key to healthy eating.
