Working in the medical community, Bread & Butter Club member Jennifer Hill understands the important role of food as medicine. As a speech-language pathologist, she regularly works with clients who have difficulty swallowing and require altered food textures to eat safely. Many of them struggle to prepare safe and healthy meals at home.
We often only see wild rice served three ways: in a soup, as a salad, and as a side grain. But there is so much more we can do with it. Wild rice has a robust, toasty flavor along with a strong texture that support much more creative recipes. From savory fritters to sweet custards, there is more than one way to husk a grain. Wild rice gets its rich color and flavor from the parching and roasting process. So, the trick is to highlight and use that flavor to enhance your dish rather than just serving it up as a side.
Each year, we survey everyone who receives our meals to see how well we are meeting their needs. We recently finished gathering data for our 2019 survey, and the results show just how much clients enjoy our delicious meals.
