The Gourmet Peasant

The Gourmet Peasant

Hi I’m Blake , The Gourmet peasant. Did you know to dine out at a restaurant, the average person pays upwards of $25 per meal? That’s almost  $100 for a family of 4 to have a sit-down meal. It’s no wonder why more and more people are finding themselves with financial struggles just to put food on the table; they spend it all eating out. I found a lot of people eat out because they’re intimidated by ingredients or by just being in the kitchen.
This is where The Gourmet Peasant born. I found myself paying high costs for mediocre restaurant food that I knew I could make myself, if I just put a little effort into it. Not to mention, it would be exactly geared to my palate.  I knew I could put that money towards good, whole foods to make for my family. I have never been afford high-end, expensive ingredients, but I knew I could take more affordable items and make them shine as if they were the more expensive ones. I get creative with where I get my food from; I shop sales, farmers markets and close to expiration date discounts.
Food should never be boring! Let me show you how easy and delicious food at home can be! My recipes are simple, easy to follow and won’t break the bank.

My website is being overhauled, so please visit my Instagram for easy and delicious recipes.
