Real Food for Busy Families
Silver Birch Kitchens in Long Valley helps busy families put memorable dinners on the table every night.
Owned and operated by husband-and-wife team Jessica and Marc Geanoules, Silver Birch Kitchens is named after Jessica’s grandfather who owned a Long Valley Farm called Silver Birch. Honoring his tradition of growing and eating fresh produce, the couple makes tasty food that is seasonal, often purchasing products from local farms, Zone 7, and Anthony & Sons Bakery. All of their food is truly homemade.
I dropped in to meet with Jessica and Marc to see what Silver Birch was serving up. For lunch they offer made-to-order sandwiches and fresh soup. For dinner, they make entrees and sides that are available almost daily for “grab and go.” In addition, they offer an online dinner-ordering service where customers can place orders for freshly prepared meals from their weekly menu. Each week, Silver Birth offers nine new menu items such as butternut squash spaghetti, grilled chicken with roasted kale and potatoes, and Mexican chicken and rice soup. Salivating yet? I am. Who wouldn’t want to substitute pizza night with a fresh, fabulously cooked meal? All weekly orders can be delivered or picked up on Wednesdays.
In their mission to help families eat better, Jessica and Mark also have a line of kids’ food called “Kids Corner.” It includes items like sweet potato gnocchi and butternut squash waffles. They are using the “Sneaky Chef” approah, often hiding vegetables in what Jessica calls “convenient, healthy, real food.” They are making sure it is all “kid-tested and approved” with the goal of helping families feed their children home cooked meals that are healthy. In an age of powdered cheese and microwavable convenience food, it’s nice to know that restaurants like Silver Birch are giving busy families a better option to enjoy local, seasonal and market fresh American fare: all they have to do is heat and serve.
