About Alison Heeres

I'm Alison Heeres, the homegrown head cook at Coriander Kitchen and Farm. I'm addicted to dill, coriander, lemon zest, and crunchy things. I cook food grown by people and companies I know and trust. I believe in food that is satisfying, healthful, and balanced. I am most often inspired by a particular good, timely, or unique ingredient that crosses my path. I am a seeker of traditional food knowledge and whole food cooking techniques. While I focus on local produce and proteins, our flavors are influenced by spices and techniques from far and wide. In fact, there is nothing we like more than taking a recipe from a world away and making it with local ingredients.
