Rasa Kitchen + Juice BEST CAFÉ, SANTA FE: AN INTERVIEW

What do you love most about local food?

WITH WENDY BORGER

Local foods connect us with the history, traditions, and culture of a place in a way that nothing else really can. Memories and connections are cultivated by enjoying the food specific to where we live and to the places we visit. It was so easy to fall in love with the flavors of northern New Mexico. My favorite time of year here is around the chile harvest, when the air is full of the fragrance of open fires and roasting chiles. Quintessential Santa Fe!

Rasa is a modern cafĂŠ in the truest sense, offering innovative food choices that reflect the most current and progressive thinking surrounding Ayurvedic and plant-based cuisine. Wendy Borger, owner and creative director of Rasa, tells edible about her business and passion.
