The Red Radish’s owner Amy Marrazzo firmly believes in the concept of “less is more.” When curating her shop’s stock of breads, fruit, bulk herbs, canned goods, herbal remedies, and beauty products, she seeks out brands that take a minimal approach to processing and flavoring. That includes Good Earth Farms, which supplies her shop with free-range and organic meats, as well as Nature’s Sunshine for herbs and natural supplements. She also takes care to maintain a range of products for a number of dietary needs, such as dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and low-carb. For clients’ outer beauty, the store features Good Earth’s soaps, which are handcrafted locally, as well as the locally produced Trillium Organics body products.
After vacationing in France in the early 1970s, retired physicist Carl Sontheimer was inspired to go back to work. He?d seen a new gadget?a mechanized food processor for restaurants?and wanted to retool it for passionate home cooks like himself. His machine was efficient and versatile: mixing eggs into puff pastry took 15 minutes for a human, 10 minutes for a trained chimpanzee, but just 15 seconds in the food processor. Immediately, revered chefs including Julia Child, Jacques P?pin, and James Beard applauded the invention, and Beard even wrote an entire cookbook dedicated to the machine. Decades later, Cuisinart?s line of innovative products ranges from waffle makers and rice cookers to eco-friendly nonstick pans.
