Freshness First – The Importance of Using Fresh Ingredients in Cooking
Every time you cook, you automatically reach for that can of veggies, fruits or preserved meat for your dish. Whether it is for yourself and your family, or your guests, your cooking almost always includes processed ingredients straight from the freezer or sealed packet. The fault of using processed or frozen ingredients lies not in the cooking style, but in the lifestyle. We simply do not have the time to search for and buy fresh ingredients every day.
In that process, we are jeopardizing our health and wealth. If you are a fan of canned food or eating out of the box, here are a few reasons that will make you choose fresh ingredients over processed ones.
Freshness for health
Fresh ingredients are always better for preparing healthy food, when compared to processed ingredients. Fresh ingredients are basically those that haven’t been exposed to chemicals or processed in any way to increase their shelf life. They have to be consumed on the same day or within a day or two. Fresh ingredients, including fresh vegetables, meat, spices like basil, cilantro, tomatoes, garlic also retain their nutritious value when you cook them right. Unlike processed foods, they are pure and not adulterated in any way, by exposure to preservatives and other such chemicals.
Food cooked with fresh ingredients is healthier than food cooked with processed ingredients or those stored using preservatives.
Fresh ingredients for better tasting food
When it comes to taste, nothing can beat fresh ingredients. The flavor in the food you cook is best when you use fresh ingredients – whether it is succulent meat, fresh produce, basil that is freshly grown in your own yard, ripe tomatoes from the plant you grew in your window – all of them taste a lot better fresh than preserved. At Vicky’s Restaurants we use fresh ingredients, come try us out and you will agree that food tastes better with fresh ingredients.
At Vicky’s, our burgers are made of fresh beef from local farmers. Not “natural”, partially local or mixed with all sorts of fillers. Our beef is good for your taste buds and your body. Our produce…lettuce, tomato’s, etc… is also locally sourced and always the freshest possible, all at a price that’s less expensive than many other burger restaurants.
The sandwich was named after John Montagu, the 4th Earl of Sandwich, an 18th-century English aristocrat. Popularized in England in 1762, folklore says that Lord Sandwich was fond of this form of food because it allowed him to continue playing cards, while eating without getting his cards greasy. Today, the sandwich can take many forms but most commonly its sliced vegetables, meat and cheese between two pieces of bread that act as a “container” or “wrapper”.

This is a super yummy recipe. You can use ready to serve bacon if you’d like. These burgers are seasoned hamburgers stuffed with shredded cheese and bacon. The history of this wonderful creation goes back to the summer of 2010. Tim Thalacker and Andrew Broderick were cooking hamburgers and the bacon and cheese kept sliding off so they wondered what if they could put the bacon and cheese inside the meat? Well they tried it one time and they loved it…they are the smartest people in the world!
All of our burgers are served with 1,000 island dressing, lettuce, tomato, onion and pickle on a white bun (wheat buns on request).
