A visit with Cannelle et Vanille’s Aran Goyoaga
It was a cold and rainy day when Aran Goyoaga from Cannelle et Vanille and her family came to visit Uncle Matt’s in January. They drove all the way from South Florida to visit us again and we were more than happy to spend time with Aran and her family, sharing our organic philosophy and letting the family taste the difference for themselves.
We loved meeting Aran’s parents; her mom was eager to taste the pummelos and all the various varieties of citrus in season, and we knew without asking that amazing things would be coming from their kitchen once they arrived home with our fruit. Aran’s daughter Miren was enthusiastic and we caught her gleefully sucking out the yummy juice from a variety of citrus Benny gave to her, or that she picked from our trees herself. She and Uncle Matt’s daughter ran around the groves, even through the drizzle, picking fruit and sampling the freshness. While it was rainy and cold, it didn’t stop any of us from enjoying our time together.
Thank you, Aran, for your visit. Thank you for supporting our family company, and the organic mission. We welcome you back anytime, and we look forward to reading and tasting some of your new kitchen creations featuring Uncle Matt’s.
Here are some pictures from our day below. You can read about Aran’s experience and her recipes from the day here. And we encourage you to buy a copy of her new book, Small Plates & Sweet Treats.
