When I moved to New Mexico in 2001, I expected desert, adobe, beautiful skyscapes and sun. I did not expect valleys of rich volcanic soil and a veritable Garden of Eden of delicacies such as apricots, rhubarb, peaches, pears, apples, berries, and wheat.
As a private chef I had travelled many places learning cooking and baking techniques but have always loved to create with what grows around me. What we eat should change with the seasons and should incorporate both wild and cultivated foods that grow in our own backyards.
I started Intergalactic Bread Company at the community kitchen in Taos and quickly grew. I moved into a bagel shop where I would do my processing and baking when they shut down at night. I saved money and started my own kitchen in Santa Fe to be closer to my main market - the Santa Fe Farmers Market - and have continued to grow adding new products - like five Intergalactic Space Sauces which, like Intergalactic Breads, are made with locally grown New Mexico fruits and vegetables.
My philosophy is to do somthing that you love - to have fun doing it - and to do something that hurts no one.
I hope that you enjoy Intergalactic products! We certainly love what we do and hope that this joy translates into pleasure for your palate...
