Soul­food Or­ganic Store and Cafe´ has dis­cov­ered the best recipe pos­si­ble for cre­at­ing scrump­tious, tasty and healthy food in a su­perb environment at their premises in Wanaka – us­ing or­ganic food – and all for a grow­ing list of sat­is­fied clien­tele. For the past 12 years Soul­food Or­gan­ics has been sup­ply­ing qual­ity or­ganic food in the cen­tre of beau­ti­ful Wanaka, first as a store sell­ing a range of goods, be­fore ex­pand­ing eight years ago to en­com­pass a cafe´ util­is­ing the qual­ity stock they ac­cessed and sold. Owner Paul says their goal was to pro­vide good food and use Or­gan­ics to help them to achieve this. Although ‘or­gan­ics’ is the key­word, Paul says it re­ally is about tak­ing food back to the way it was. ‘‘We never had preser­va­tives and colour­ing; in lots of ways or­gan­ics is tak­ing a step back into the past, with sim­plic­ity a key part of pro­duc­ing very good, very healthy food which is im­por­tant for good health.’’ Paul said the food they have avail­able in the Soul­food Cafe´ is all made from scratch. ‘‘No pro­cessed foods at all, amongst the breads, dips, spreads, may­on­naise and other tasty treats avail­able.’’ Sourc­ing their or­ganic food lo­cally is a key part of their busi­ness Paul ex­plained. ‘‘We try re­ally hard to meet this goal,’’ Paul said. ‘‘For us it is im­por­tant that our food comes from close to home and we are for­tu­nate that there are lots of very good qual­ity or­ganic sup­pli­ers out there as we want our food to be as fresh and as lush as pos­si­ble.’’ Ex­pand­ing from a store to en­com­pass a cafe´ was a nat­u­ral pro­gres­sion for Paul. ‘‘Peo­ple would come into the store and see all these prod­ucts and were of­ten un­sure how to use some of them,’’ he said. ‘‘Now they can ex­pe­ri­ence many of these prod­ucts in the food we pro­duce here and be in­spired to make their own.’’ Gluten free and dairy free op­tions are also avail­able in the cafe´ and they also cater in smaller quan­ti­ties, to other di­etary needs. Add their de­li­cious cakes and very pop­u­lar sweet or savoury muffins, along­side their re­fresh­ing smooth­ies, and there is some­thing to tempt all taste­buds. Then there are Soul­food’s le­gendary piz­zas and ‘to die for’ Car­rot Cake, and the choice is end­less. The se­lec­tion avail­able makes it well worth vis­it­ing the com­plete or­ganic Wanaka store and cafe´ for a se­lec­tion of yummy good­ies to en­joy on site or take away or to pur­chase a se­lec­tion of goods to take home to cre­ate your own very spec­tac­u­lar recipe.
