PHOTO COURTESY OF SOUND BITES Here is the Hazelnut Pesto and Pasta I made for the shoot. I didn’t arrange it on the plate and I didn’t take the picture. I’m probably the worst person for photoshoots because I was worried about flavor the entire time. The pasta tasted amazing so I did my job! Anyway, I’ll post some more pictures in a separate post.

I knocked it out of the park! It’s all […]

Our first crackers include: – Roasted Garlic Chardonnay Cracker: Made with organic emmer and spelt flours from Lentz Spelt Farm and a garlic-infused Chardonnay […]
What a magnificent pairing. It’s great working for a sauce and spread company. I get a chance to think outside the box a little and try our products with other foods. Most people use our chimichurri as a finishing sauce for a steak or will simply dip bread into the chimichurri. Well, here’s the pairing I recommend the most with our Lime Riesling Chimichurri……….Raw Oysters!!! Most people will dab a little hot sauce and some lime juice on one of […]
