About THE ONES, a plant-based recipe collection by Rocio Graves
This offering emerged from an unplanned desire / impulse to create. Inspired by the light, space, and energy of a friend’s home in Moscari, on the island of Mallorca, nestled into the mountainside, Rocio felt on an intrinsic level that it was the place for her to explore a food alchemy project. “The Ones.” were born. Spreads, chutneys, dressings, pickles, sweet delights, soups and drinks that we can always have on hand to add vibrancy, flavour, and nourishment to any meal.
