Hailing from the great Midwest, then individually tumbling through many locations, we’re two sisters that have finally landed in the same place (Sonoma County, California) and had the chance to combine our unique talents to create something bigger. At Two Tumbleweeds we create uniquely crafted goods that inspire creativity in everyday life, the first of which is Foodie Dice.® We think about every little element of what we make, with no detail left unconsidered. It’s not enough to have a great idea; we also want everything that we create to be beautiful and thoughtful.
We originally created Foodie Dice for ourselves because even though we cooked often and liked to experiment in the kitchen, we tended to cook the same things over and over again. We wanted to find a way to take advantage of all that’s available to us here. Once we started to play with the dice, we discovered tons of new combinations that we wouldn’t have thought of before, and after launching our idea with great success on Kickstarter, we found that when you solve an everyday problem in a simple and unique way, people get really excited about it.
WE’RE ON A MISSION TO MAKE COOKING FUN.
Even foodies fall into cooking ruts sometimes. Recipes have their place, but they can be restrictive and intimidating. Foodie Dice, on the other hand, encourages you to play with your food! Cooking doesn’t have to be complicated or take a lot of time or skill when you start with whole, seasonal ingredients and a playful spirit.
What is Foodie Dice?
Nine laser engraved dice — 5 primary dice and 4 seasonal veggie dice — that provide inspiration for creating simple, seasonal meals (Protein, cooking method, grain/carb, herb, bonus ingredient + Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter Veggies) The dice have a range of ingredients — some are more common and some are meant to get you to be adventurous. Over 186,000 combinations to inspire creativity in the kitchen. You’ll be surprised at how many rolls may be something you never thought to pair together, but make sense. Takes the guesswork out of eating seasonally. Eating veggies that are in season just plain tastes better. It’s hard to know what’s in season these days with all of the access that we have to food in the grocery store, but the dice make it easier. If you live in a colder region, it might be a little more challenging, but at least you’ll be eating things that came from California instead of South America. You’ll never want to eat a mealy tomato in December again. Naturally gluten-free and can easily be Paleo-friendly—just leave out the carb/grain die and roll the veggie die twice. Pasta can easily be substituted for a gluten-free version.Laser engraved wooden dice are made in the USA, and come packaged in an upcycled wine bottle tumbler or cotton muslin pouch
