Taste & See

Taste & See is a new ministry of Redeemer Church. The goal of Taste & See is to share great food with the world. We do this by giving free samples at local events and providing recipes right here on our website. We do this because we believe that this is a great representation of what God has done for us. He has poured out his lavish grace on us free of charge.

We hope you enjoy this food and pray that you see that God tastes better than anything we could ever cook.

Psalm 34:8 Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good!
