"I have been looking for a product made from local ingredients from a small company I can trust. Your customer service was very personal and the beef broth makes me cook like a pro. What a sauce!" - Tom V, New Haven, CT
"So hard to find a real broth from a real company. Love it!" - Brian N, Norwalk, CT
"My doctor recommended drinking broth, but not store bought. I've tried many and Good Bones is unique." - Annie F, Westport, CT
A Short History of a Long Tradition
According to legend, in 1765 the first "restaurant" was opened on the rue des Poulies by a Parisian named Monsieur Boulanger. He served mostly bouillons restaurants. The French word restaurants that described Boulanger's broths is from the Latin restaurare, which means "to renew." Hmmm ... we see a trend here!
The sign over his door read: "Boulanger provides divine sustenance" and he continued with a sense of humor emphasizing in Latin: "Venite ad me omnes qui stomacho laboratis et ego vas restaurabo."
In English, this translates as "Come to me all who suffer from pain of the stomach and I will restore you" - a pun reflecting the restorative powers of his broths and Jesus's invitation in Matthew 11:28 "Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
So, in leaving my long career in restaurants to create Good Bones it seems I've unwittingly returned to the very roots of my profession - a restaurant. An irony that is not lost on me!
Best in health!
