little room for Improvisation and spontaneity
Grinding away in corporate roles, cogs in large machines and leading a lifestyle full of routine and planning. What was the point? We craved change....If not now...then when?
“LET’S MOVE TO THE MOUNTAINS”
Home to all of our favourite recreation and vacation destinations. Our place to congregate, find solitude, or simply just be. Within a few months time we sold our home, quit our jobs, waved goodbye to city living and hit the road. No confirmed destination - just a hope and a search for change.
BORN IN A HOME KITCHEN
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND MOUNTAIN BITES WAS SIMPLY THE ALTERNATIVES, OR LACK THEREOF
Food has always been a huge part of who we are. From dressing up as a waiter as a youngster to serve a family dinner, to spending our formative years in the catering industry, or our time in culinary school.
FOOD IS A PASSION...A LANGUAGE UNDERSTOOD ACROSS CULTURES AROUND THE WORLD
We were always searching for a culinary companion to energize us on our next ski day, hike, bike ride or back-country excursion. Disenchanted by the low quality ingredients, factory-processed options lacking any freshness or craftsmanship...We wanted REAL FOOD that tasted great. NO EXCEPTIONS and NO CUTTING CORNERS. A labour of love crafted over several years in our home kitchen.
RAISED IN A SMALL MOUNTAIN TOWN
After a month on the road we found our home, tucked away in the Kootenay Mountains in the small mining town of Rossland, BC. Within a few weeks, Melinda felt a calling to the Rossland Mountain Farmer’s Market to see what the world thought of Mountain Bites. We sold out...the next week we sold out too.
AND SO THE JOURNEY CONTINUED
Learning every step of the way. We had embarked on an adventure to change our lives, find meaning in what we do, and following our passions.
