I can’t beleive we are finally here. It seems like we travelled the longest possible road, and to have arrived at this place, this virtual space, seems something like a small miracle.
My friends and I have been working in Wholesale Food Distibution for the longest time, and while it’s been a great trip (awesome samples, great dining experiences, speaking to some great chefs, and not so great ones…oh, and living day in and day out amongst the most amazing food items from around the globe!), we knew there was more we had to do.
I would stand in line at my local Whole Foods, grabbing a snack for lunch from the prepared foods counter, and watch patron after patron purchase some neat items (many of which I worked around daily), in small quantity and spend a RIDICULUOUS amount of money for the pleasure! I wanted to scream at them “Don’t you know what that stuff really costs???? Are you Mad??!?! Don’t do it!”
Of course, those folks had no choice…that is, until now.
We plan to continue to add to this site, every day, the amazing items that chefs all over the country are currently using in their kitchens, and you won’t have to pay a kings ransom to get them into YOUR kitchen. Items like Nueske Bacon (wow….some seriously nice product) or Spanish Saffron (yes, you CAN make Paella at home) are just a couple of hundreds of items we plan on adding to the site.
We have a growing Artisanal Cheese business which we’ll be launching shortly, and we’ve already begun to add items from our wide variety of Charcuterie selection from our specialty and cured meats cellar.
But this isn’t just about selling you food, heck No! We want you to get content, information…a good, solid understanding of who we are and what we do. We love this stuff, just like you. We spend endless hours talking about food, watching shows about food (did you catch last nights Top Chef?), and most of all…eating and cooking food. We are no less than 100% completely obsessed (some of us clearly look it) with food, ingredients, cooking etc.
We’re going to post often. We’re going to introduce you to new items, new flavors from around the world. We’re going to PODCAST ourselves talking about this great stuff, and you might even hear us chewing (in fact, don’t be surprised if the talking stops and all you CAN hear is chewing). Keep an eye/ear out for our first podcast which will launch very shortly.
