More than a blog about how to cook, in this blog we would like to show at GreenDish, we strive to become a model for entrepreneurial Indian artisan manufacturing -- inspiring designers and artists to look towards domestic production and small manufacturers to think creatively about their business models. Ultimately, we believe local values-based businesses offer greater long-term rewards than can ever be achieved in chasing higher short-term profits by sending manufacturing oversees.
Artisan manufacturers will have a social impact on future artists and craftspeople. The general public will have increased access to well-designed products made locally. Artisans are becoming manufacturers as new technologies allow fine design and excellent quality to be produced in quantity. This blend of craftsperson, businessperson, and manufacturer holds the future for ceramic production.
At the same time, we hope that sitting around the table to enjoy delicious food with family and friends you can feel a connection with the people who made your dish from organic clays using techniques passed down from their ancestors.
Clay pot cooking is popular because it produces such delicious results and can be used to cook, bake, or sauté any food, including bread. There is no reason to alter your favorite recipes when cooking with clay dishes. They take a little longer to heat up, but they brown food well and retain the heat longer. It is probably sensible to reduce the heat once the cooking gets going and check the oven for readiness a little earlier
Education is a core value of GrenDish. Beyond educating people about good food, cooking, and Clay cookware, GreenDish is committed to educating the next generation of young women and men looking to make a choice in sustainable business practices.
Enjoy your cooking!
