Our Story

In 2017, I was one year out of college and working long, stressful weeks in a start up job. When overwhelmed, I would often find solace in the kitchen, experimenting with novel (and sometimes strange) combinations. These moments of refuge soon turned into a recipe blog called Just Recipes where I shared my creations.

In 2018 I quit my start up job and started working in kitchens full time, first in South America, and then in Cambridge and Boston. All the while, I kept sharing new inspirations through Just Recipes. It was through this passion project that I began to glimpse the magic that is food. Food is more than just sustenance. It is how we show care, how we nurture. Food is a deep expression of love, both for ourselves, and for those we share it with.

When a good friend of mine asked me to make a dessert recipe that was gluten-free, nut-free, and vegan, I fell back on simplicity: dried fruit, chocolate, seed butter, spice, and salt. The result was something magical and much greater than the sum of its parts. That recipe eventually grew into Hot Dates. My hope is to share that magic with as many people as possible, to provide people with something they can use to express love towards themselves and others, to support farms and other food producers, and to give back to our community. We are small and young company and we hope that you'll share in this adventure, provide feedback, tell us how we can be better, and help us spread the love.

Our Values

Sustainability

We believe using real, simple ingredients. We partner with farmers and chocolatiers to source the best possible ingredients that don't need anything else. We sources our dates from organic date farms in Coachella, California using coscientious farming practices, drip irrigation, and no chemical fertilizers or pesticides. Our sunflower butter requires no irrigated water (compared to 400 gallons per lb for almond butter), utilizing only rain water and snow pack. All of our chocolate is certified sustainable by Cocoa Horizons.

 

Quality Ingredeints

All of our ingredients are Plant-Based, Non-GMO, Gluten-Free, and Perservative-Free. Better for you, better for the planet, and better for our furry friends.

 

Give Back

We give 10% of profits to causes combating climate change and reducing global poverty.
