Yummy food for everyone
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.
