About Julia’s Kitchen January 30, 2012

Julia’s Kitchen is a small, casual restaurant serving food that is unparallelled in quality. We are all about the food. We love it. We soak, sprout, and ferment it. We treat it with care. We allow it to shine in its simplicity.

Everything is organic, because organic ingredients are always available in this little gem of a town. If we can’t get something organic (other than a few things like salt and baking soda), we use something else.

We use olive oil and coconut oil; only those. And we are very careful about how we treat them.

We understand that the abundance of food available to us is a true blessing and we hold the awareness that there are many others throughout the world, even in our own country, for whom food is far from abundant. We are very mindful to avoid waste, to avoid unnecessary ingredients, and to make the most of the ingredients we do use.

Sprouting seeds (what we call grains, beans, nuts, and seeds) changes their nutritional profile; it pretty much makes them into different foods. A sprouted seed versus one that is not sprouted has a higher proportion of protein and a lower proportion of starch; it takes less energy to digest because chemical changes have taken place that, in effect, unlock the available nutrients rather than keeping them bound up by phytates and other anti-nutrients. That’s why seeds have almost always been soaked, sprouted, and/or fermented. That’s why we do it now.

  7. Samantha Says:

    Hi Julia! Can I arrange for a few brownies/blondies with cashew frosting for sampling for a party (of course we will pay!)? How much lead time do you need and is it possible to just get a few of each? Thanks!

    • adaba Says:

      Hi Samantha. Sure! We could make them on Thursday at the soonest, or just let us know when you need them!

  8. Samantha Says:

    Awesome! They won’t b sampled until Saturday. Will they still be good? Otherwise should we make it Friday am? Also, do you have cake slices or cupcakes I can also take with for sampling?

  9. […] email friend suggested checking out Julia’s Kitchen. Their website states they are 100% plant-based and gluten-free. Wish I’d had time to check this […]

    So absolutely everything listed anywhere on the site is vegan and gluten-free? The entire cafe and bakery menu?

    • adaba Says:

      Yes! Absolutely all gluten free and vegan, organic as well. I don’t believe in cutting corners on ingredients or the intention that goes into the food, so we use olive oil and coconut oil (no canola, sunflower, etc), low-impact sweeteners, etc, etc. Just like you’d make at home! We hope you’ll come in, and tell your friends as we are trying to spread the word!

    Just enjoyed a fantastic Mother’s Day lunch with my family. So happy to have discovered this healthy restaurant. It was like going to a friend’s home for dinner. Thanks! Allison and Scott
