In the kitchen at Macadoo's Family Restaurant, owners Tim and Kathy page through their family recipe books to craft comfort food for breakfast and lunch. Homemade soups simmer on the stove each day, and warm ladles of beef manhattan cover their platters. And Tim's made-from-scratch sausage gravy layers over the "almost world famous" biscuits and gravy, whose international recognition was thwarted only by its own inability to answer reporters' questions. In addition to serving hearty entrees and sandwiches, the restaurateurs help diners embrace each sunrise with hot coffee and traditional breakfast dishes.
After observing a lack of local, all-natural gourmet food products, Seasons Harvest took inspiration from the fresh tastes found at local farms and created a line of flavorful sauces and salsas made without preservatives or water filler. Popular products include hearty pasta sauces, medium-heat salsas, dessert toppings, and "salad enlighteners," which add zest to salads without heavy oils.
