So, what is au sol?

"Au sol" is a French term that translates to "on the ground." In the culinary world, it refers to food ingredients that are grown or harvested directly from the earth. These can include vegetables, fruits, grains, and herbs. The term emphasizes the importance of natural growth and sustainability in food production. "Au sol" foods are often considered healthier and more nutritious than processed foods. They are also favored by chefs and home cooks for their fresh flavor and versatility in cooking. Incorporating "au sol" ingredients into your meals can add depth and complexity to your dishes while supporting environmentally responsible practices.
