Whole, nutrient-dense foods not only boost physical strength and energy but also promote restful sleep and help improve mood, essential when you're caring for a new baby or recovering from a hardship. We focus on fresh, organically-grown produce, grass-fed and pasture-raised meats, and wholesome fats like coconut milk. The base of all our soups and stews are homemade, long-simmered chicken and vegetable broths. While our meals are particularly supportive for new moms and anyone in the process of healing, our food is suitable and nourishing for all eaters.
We believe in simplicity, especially when life gets complicated. If you can eat all the nutrients you need in one bowl, why wouldn't you? Hearty, wholesome soups and stews offer a complete meal that is easy to digest. Beyond these practicalities, we believe there is reason we associate soup and stew with being cared for when we’re sick or needing love. In a world where most of us feel like we never have enough time, a dish that requires a long, slow cooking process is a gift not just of nourishment but of someone’s precious time. There is no dish that is cooked with as much love and patience as a soup or stew, and we believe you can feel that with every warming bite.
We make our soups and stews and immediately freeze them, so that you are under no time pressure to eat what you receive. Because we know that support after a baby comes or other challenges can sometimes be sporadic, we hope that having a freezer full of nourishing Kitchen Doula soups and stews can be a comfort, knowing you'll never be forced to order take-out. We also offer healthy, homemade snacks that provide easy, quick boosts of energy for when you're up at midnight with a crying baby, or just all of sudden extremely hungry!
"The food Tali made was out of this world!" "The food is awesome and I feel revitalized."
Part of what makes Kitchen Doula special is our direct connection to local farms. Bringing years of experience as a farmer, Kitchen Doula founder, Tali Biale, is particularly picky and discerning about the sourcing of all her ingredients. We source our meat exclusively from the following farms:
Located in Petaluma, Tara Firma raises pastured chickens, 100% grass-fed beef, and pastured pork. We are so honored to work with a farm as committed to the health of their animals and the vitality of their land as Tara Firma.
A true small family farm, Casa Rosa Farms is located in the Capay Valley and raises lamb, pork, beef, and ducks. They also grow olives and make delicious organic olive oil. Check out this great article about them: http://www.cuesa.org/article/blazing--casa-rosa-farms.
A great example of the next generation of farmers taking the reins of sustainable agriculture, True Grass Farms is located in Valley Ford and raises pastured pork, grass-fed beef, and eggs from pastured hens. A certified Animal Welfare Approved farm.
Fruits and vegetables are sourced from several local farms, including Full Belly Farms, Tomatero Farms, Riverdog Farms, and other organic producers.
