ALL THINGS SMÁRI

May 28th, 2014

From our kitchen to yours!

We’ve all been doing our Dr. Oz darnedest to buy, cook, and eat healthier foods. Taking time to make food that’s good for our body is also good for our spirit. That’s why we are excited to share our newest project straight to you from Smári HQ.  

For several months now, we have been working with the talented chef, Carri Wilkinson, to develop an ongoing series of recipes to celebrate yogurt and its versatility. Carri crafted each recipe using only the best ingredients, and we are flattered our yogurt is on her list of kitchen staples.

We invited Carri to Smári’s country home to help us cook and photograph this first series of recipes. It was a daylong flurry of prepping, cooking, and laughing. We were tired when we wrapped the shoot that night, but we couldn’t help but feel inspired by the amazing food we’d just created.

Beginning this week, a new recipe (and photo!) will hit these pages every Friday morning. Try them out and then let us know what you think.  We’d love to hear from you!
 

 

 

Thank you to our dedicated Smári team for making this possible:

Jess Campbell
Erin Eisenhaur
