We live, breathe and cook with maple around here. Over the course of many years of experimentation we have accumulated a stack of recipes that have been tested, improved and repeated until they are just right. We present them in three categories: Drink, Eat, and Indulge. ‘Drink’ is mostly cocktails but there are a few non-alcoholic beverages as well, including the very simple and delicious Maple Milk. ‘Eat’ showcases how maple enhances savory dishes and ‘Indulge’ speaks for itself. New recipes are added regularly, so please subscribe or check in to see what our featured recipe is and feel free to send us your own ideas through the Contact page.
