Magrone and her husband Frank began Shaker Kitchen five years
ago, inspired by the New England Shakers. They work with a woman
who cooked at the Canterbury Shaker Village with some of the last
remaining Shakers. Although the Shaker Kitchen range of products,
which includes the MBTC line of dips, is constantly growing, Kay
plans to stay focused on the inspiration that the Shakers provided.
No artificial sweeteners or preservatives ever find their way
into Shaker Kitchen foods.
Magrones strictly adhere to the Shaker tradition, with high standards
of simplicity, purity, and excellence. All Shaker Kitchen products
are specially prepared in commercial kitchens in the Athol area
background in Home Economics education has been important at Shaker
Kitchen, not just in formulating the recipes, but also in suggesting
varied serving possibilities and encouraging creative uses for
their dips and sauces.
