Why Our Artisans are so special! April 17 2015

What a week we have had a Julie’s Beet. It was very exciting to officially launch the site and your response has been phenomenal.  Julie’s Beet wouldn’t be where it is today without the support of my family and friends.  My husband has been especially important in the process and he definitely gets to hear more about the products than he wants to. He also has the benefit of tasting the delicious recipes I am have been making with them, so you do not need to be too sympathetic.

We also wouldn’t be where we are today without the support of our artisans. Here is why we think each one of these artisans was special enough to be a part of the launch collection.

La Boîte – Lior Lev Sercarz, the spice master behind La Boîte, has been an inspiration in the process of ‘building’ Julie’s Beet.  He is truly passionate about his craft and you are able to taste that in each blend.  Lior’s outstanding and unique spice blends will quickly become a staple of your pantry.  More here…

Gus & Grey – These jams, jellies, marmalades and preserves are made with a lot of love in Michigan.  Each jar is filled with small-batch recipes made by Tara Grey, the jam pimp behind Gus & Grey.  Since I am from the Midwest, I was immediately drawn to Tara’s story and wanted to include something close to home in the launch.  More here…

Rococo Chocolates – The chocolate combinations from Rococo Chocolates are out of this world. After working for this award winning chocolatier, it was a must have for the opening collection.  Their chocolate is organic and they even have their own cocoa plantation on the island of Grenada.  Rococo Chocolates is all about ‘Pleasure and Provenance’ keeping the chocolate delicious and paying close attention to each ingredient.

World Excellent Products – Making olive oil has long been a tradition in Greece. Leave it to World Excellent Products to keep this tradition modern with their FIVE Olive Oil and Vinegar Collection.  The olive oil is very fresh with a vibrant flavor and the packaging is so stylish! This winning combination made us jump at the opportunity to have World Excellent Products on Julie’s Beet.  More here...

We are always looking for delicious products to add to the marketplace.  If someone you know makes something really special please let us know.  We will definitely give you credit for the introduction.

Happy Friday,

Julie
