Nourishing, ready to eat meals

Roots Kitchen (formerly Roots of Health) is owned and operated by husband and wife team, nutritionist Kerri Cooper & chef Sean MacFayden.

A self-trained cook, Kerri worked as a personal chef for families and couples in their homes throughout Toronto for over 5 years while building her holistic nutrition practice. She began offering meal delivery options to her nutrition clients as an add-on service. Cooking in her roommate’s home in Kensington market, she would gather the ingredients in the morning from the market shop keepers, prepare, cook and deliver meals to a small group of loyal customers that same evening. This slowly grew into one of the first meal delivery businesses in Toronto. Kerri left nutrition consulting for the kitchen full-time in 2013.

When Sean came on board in 2013, he quickly put his lifetime of experience and natural creativity to work helping take RK to the next level. Sean has worked in kitchens both in Toronto and London, England for over a decade and was head chef at Butchers of Distinction from 2014-2018. You can find one of his savoury pies from the butcher shop featured in Toronto Life magazine.

Over the past 7 years, business has grown completely organically through word of mouth. Everything is cooked in small batches, using ingredients purchased from farmers, butchers and food suppliers they know and trust.

Their goal is to deliver high quality, delicious and soulful meals, support local & organic farmers and re-connect people to one another over a shared meal.

Roots of Health is now based in Prince Edward County and delivers to homes and businesses across Toronto, Belleville and Prince Edward County.

Roots Kitchen philosophy centers on these 4 principles

Pleasure: Food is meant to be experienced with absolute pleasure! We handcraft our meals in small batches, using the very best ingredients and lots of fresh herbs and spices, creating absolutely delicious and inspiring meals to enjoy at home.

Nourishment: Our food is local, seasonal and organic where possible to increase its nutrient value. We use both animal and vegetable proteins; a mix of raw fermented and naturally high fiber foods, and a mineral-rich high gelatin bone broth as a base of our sauces, soups, stews and curries.

Sustainability: It’s important to us to have as much of an environmentally responsible business as possible and to continually increase our use and promotion of sustainable food, product and packaging. We support local organic farmers and local fisherfolk, source local organic products whenever possible and use re-usable, recyclable or compostable materials both in our kitchen and for our meal delivery. Food packaging and recyclables are complicated in food industry today. We’re always open to suggestions and ideas about how to be a better example of an environmentally conscious business.

Education: We love educating our customers on where their food comes from, how a local and diverse diet can nourish their bodies and why supporting farmers is important to a heathy future for us and our planet. We want you to be as excited and informed about food as we are! Follow us on Instagram to learn more.

Chicken: We only use certified organic chicken from Yorkshire Valley Farms.

Eggs: Eggs are sourced in the warm months from Local Prince Edward county farms from hens who roam on pasture. In the colder months we use organic eggs from Yorkshire Valley Farms.

Beef: Our beef is supplied by Butchers of Distinction who butcher everything in house. They source beef from small Ontario farms using sustainable methods free of any antibiotics or hormones. Prime cuts are aged for a minimum of 30 days on the bone and all meat grinds come from one source. The cattle are raised outdoors in the warmer months on grass, rye and field peas. They are moved indoors in the winter and eat grass silage and crushed barley. 100% grass fed beef come from Cannington Ontario who graze on grass in the summer and grass hay in the winter.

Pork: We source our pork from Butchers of Distinction in Toronto and local farmers in Prince Edward County. All pork is raised without any use of hormones or antibiotics and are from from heritage breeds which take longer to raise, leading to more flavor.

Produce: During the growing season we use Prince Edward County Farm Fresh Produce from Edwin County Farms (organic), Hagerman farms, Mayphin Farms and Landry’s Farms. Pfennings Farms (organic) also supply us with organic produce in the off-season. We also have a growing amount of organic produce we grow in our kitchen garden, including greens, tomato, kale, chard, garlic, carrot and beet.

Fish: Fresh caught pickerel, whitefish and perch is caught by County Catch in our local Bay of Quinte. We also use wild salmon.

Sprouts: The sprouts we use are grown down the road at Cloven Farms.
