At Taste Cornucopia, we use organic ingredients whenever we can, unless they are prohibitively expensive. All of the fresh produce we use at Taste is organic, our flours are organic, and most of our nuts and seeds are organic, but these do vary depending on availability. When certain items are not available, we may choose not to offer something if we can’t source it organically. If we want to continue to offer a dish and we can’t get all organic ingredients for it, then free range and local is our guide.
We take great pride in the quality of our coffees and teas; both our regular and decaf coffees are organic and supplied by Atomic, and our teas are organic. We also offer fresh juices and smoothies made in-house with organic fruit and vegetables. We offer a range of iced drinks to cool you off during our warm summer days, and we have winter warmers such as lemon honey and ginger, and spiced apple when you feel the need for something to warm you up (yes, we do have the odd cold day in Hawkes Bay!).
We do our very best to avoid any nasties in our business. We use environmentally friendly cleaners, recycled paper products and compostable takeaway containers.
We take pride in making everything from scratch in our kitchen, including all of our breads (except the gluten-free bread which we get from Cornucopia Organics Shop next door), desserts, condiments and sauces.
