《南聊》夏夫小農蔬食舖 Shafarm

【安心吃飯,好好生活】- 夏夫小農蔬食舖 Shafarm

地址:台南市北區西門路四段65巷59號
受訪人:喬勳、夏瑟
當問到她們來自哪裡時,她們的回答是:『自己在哪個城市生活,便成為那裡的人。』

喬勳和夏瑟原本在台北做髮型設計師的工作,兩年前共同決定在30歲前,透過打工度假的方式走訪澳洲,那趟旅行改變了她們對於生活的看法,也在不知不覺中奠定了「夏夫小農」的雛型。回想起澳洲的生活,兩人說她們選擇居住的地方非常荒涼,整個城市只有天空、紅土和原住民,她們在公路旁的加油站餐廳裡工作,每天上班之外的時間,都坐在陽台搖椅上看書和天空,日子流動緩慢得所有感覺都很赤裸、純粹,那一年的生活讓她們拉近和大自然的距離,在廣闊的土地上,感受到自然的豐富。

喬勳說在去澳洲前她本來就喜歡下廚,不過台灣的便利性讓她一直停留在「只有那幾道拿手菜」的狀態。而在澳洲的時光,想吃什麼就要自己努力做出味道,連食材都不容易取得的情況下,廚藝自然與時俱進的進步。夏夫小農的獨門辣油也是在澳洲時,因為非常想念麻辣鍋,嘗試出來的好味道。而夏瑟目前在每個週末都會製作甜點供應,對她來說,製作甜點的過程是在找尋自己,酸甜之中都是滿滿的心意。

回台灣後的兩人原先回到台北居住,但無論是對於城市的喧鬧或者食物的味道,都明顯感覺格格不入。夏瑟說她開始思考為什麼人為什麼要這樣生活?喬勳也說澳洲當地人的生活哲學是:把握當下的每時每刻,便不愧對每一天的自己。

現在走進夏夫小農,可以買到健安畜牧場自然放牧的雞蛋、主恩牧場每周一到貨的鮮奶,還有許多環境友善的生活雜貨,對她們來說,這些東西都是店裡在使用的,透過展示和推廣,若有更多人願意購買使用,便會對社會產生善的循環。許多客人在吃過夏夫小農後會說:「自己平常不喜歡吃的食材,在她們的料理中變得協調又美味,不知不覺就吃下去了。」她們強調隱形食材的應被重視性,最終希望所有來夏夫小農用餐過的人,能夠對於所有自己吃下去的食物、日常使用的物件都多點留心,回家做菜、好好吃飯。

喬勳外出用餐的推薦:不專精匠、島旬、木漢堡
夏瑟的甜點推薦:派慕流浪甜點、樹耳朵

Jorief & Shaser were hair designers based in Taipei. Two years ago, they decided to visit Australia by working holiday. That journey has changed their thoughts toward life, and built the idea of opening Shafarm. Recalling from their memory, the place where they lived in Australia was a scene of desolation. The city was filled with sky, red soil and aboriginal. They worked in a restaurant of gas station by high way, they spent their time in the balcony reading books and looking at the sky after work every day. Everything slow down and all the feelings were pure and direct.

Jorief enjoyed cooking before she visited Australia, but the convenience of Taiwan kept her only familiar with several cuisines. During the time in Australia, lacking of the diverse of ingredients and surrounding by unfamiliar flavor, under this circumstances, she improved her cooking skill a lot. Shafarm’s famous product, chilly oil was invented when they were in Australia. On the other hand, Shaser serves hand-made desserts on every weekend now in Sharfarm, for her, the progress of making desserts are somehow connected to finding her true self. Within the flavor is full of her blessing.

They lived in Taipei after came back from Australia for a short time. Both the flavor of food and crowd of the city made them feel uncomfortable. Shaser started to think about whether people could have different lifestyle but we only lived once, Jorief sharing that she observed the people in Australia cherish every moment and make every day worth. Then they both agree to make some difference.

You can now purchase fresh egg and milk from eco-friendly farm in Sharfarm, also other eco-friendly daily living products. For them, these items are what they use every day, by displaying and promoting, if more and more people are willing to purchase them, it will make good impact toward the society. Many people who had dined in Sharfarm were surprised they actually ate some ingredients they usually don’t eat, Sharfarm emphasizes the importance of invisible ingredients, they are hoping everyone who had dined in their restaurant could start to cook by themselves, care more about every products they purchase, notice everything relates to one another, they believe this and will make huge difference when everyone really care.

Jorief’s recommendation of restaurant in Tainan: Forest Meal, Wood Burger Shop.
Shaser’s desserts recommendation: Prime, Oh les Feuilles. (Both are studios and only open for reservation)
