The company is based in Hyde Park, owned by friends Joan MacIsaac and Irene Costello. Joan's mother, Effie MacLellan, was the inspiration for the oatcake.

Gold winners of the Sofi awards will be announced in June at the annual Fancy Food Show in New York.

The Recipe Box Project:

If you want to contribute a recipe to The Recipe Box Project, please write it below. Also tell us where you got it (package box, cookbook, mom, friend -- include the name). We're looking for the kinds of dishes that people grew up on, that were served at family suppers, that tell a story, that are typically New England, or that you brought with you from a far away place to New England. We will print one of the recipes in the Food section once a month. To ask any questions, write to Debra Samuels, who is overseeing this project, at To discuss your recipes, click here.
