With Christine Bell
In The Kitchen

02/15/18



 Christine Bell of Brookline worked as an oncology nurse and sold her own quinoa bars to family and friends on the side before going commercial about three years ago. She’s the owner of Hope Bars (P.O. Box 46, Brookline, hope-bars.com), which produces six flavors of quinoa bars that are all gluten-free, dairy-free and non-GMO. The flavors are peanut butter chocolate, dark chocolate cherry, chocolate with coconut, antioxidant blueberry, almond coconut and maple cinnamon. They are available as single bars at most Whole Foods supermarkets and a few independent grocery stores across New Hampshire and Massachusetts, and they can be purchased online in packages of 10 for $36.

 
What is your must-have kitchen item?
Our cutter is our most important tool by far, because we’re cutting probably 500 bars a day. It looks like an accordion with six different pizza cutters on it that we roll over the sheet pan to cut them all evenly.
 
What would you choose to have for your last meal?
Gnocchi with vodka sauce, and definitely a glass of red wine.
 
What is your favorite local restaurant?
I would say Chrysanthi’s Greek restaurant in Brookline. I usually try to get what’s on the specials menu. They have really good seafood there, too.
 
What celebrity would you like to see buying your product?
Michelle Williams would be really cool.
 
What is your favorite flavor quinoa bar that you offer?
Definitely the peanut butter chocolate.
 
What is the biggest food trend in New Hampshire right now?
I think veganism is becoming a movement for sure. People are getting more interested in the vegan diet and why it’s important.
 
What is your favorite thing to cook at home?
I like to do a lot of soups and stews, especially in the winter, and I always throw in a lot of different veggies.
