We’re proud to introduce the BEST GLUTEN-FREE chocolate chip cookies! What makes these different is that they are 99% indistinguishable from wheat in taste and texture. They have the same buttery taste as expected and 100% IMPORTED BELGIAN chocolate as well! For these cookies we developed our own flour! All of the commercially available flours are “General Purpose” which means they’re a compromise for everything… our flour is not a compromise, we spent months developing it for our cookies and it’s nothing less than PERFECT!
This is one of our premier accounts in the Los Angeles area. Jackson Market is located in Culver City, just up the street from the Sony Studio. Very European! Nick, the owner lives next door -they have wonderful, personal service and in addition to supporting our cookies they carry a variety of specialty goods as well as serving the best coffee and making the most fantastic sandwiches for the lunch crowd.
Jordan & I had a very successful show in San Francisco. Lots of excitement about our new GLUTEN-FREE cookies, EXTREME Chocolate, Chocolate Chip Cookies and Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Cookies! 2013 will be a good year! Thank you to all!
:30 minutes of LA TV dedicated to great cookies!! Nothing could be better!
ok, so I made a slight alteration in our long standing cookie recipe about 2 weeks ago. Truth be told, I have always harbored a sublime feeling that I could do better with our cookies. I’m gratified and proud that thousands and thousands of people love our cookies and that we’ve been able to employ my philosophic soap-box of sorts. So, I analysed my art-of-the-cookie to test a thought AND, it has been worthwhile!
So, after tasting them this morning (Saturday, 12-15-12) , I can FINALLY say that for the first time in 8 years and something like 800 batches, we have reached perfection. I set aside samples from our baking 3 weeks ago and they are decidedly the best cookies that we’ve EVER baked and our recipe is finally, finalized.
In all matters, ALWAYS follow your heart and intuition.
Thank you all for your support, Bart
GOOD NEWS! I’ve been invited back to QVC! -my next air date is ELECTION DAY -11-6. My time slot is between 5 and 6PM EST. I’m not as nervous this time but VERY excited! I’m going to try to add a “behind the scenes” camera view. Thank you all!
What is Slow Food?
The best thing about Slow Food is that it is not Fast Food!
It’s about traditional and regional cuisine, and locally-sourced ingredients. It’s about choosing sustainably-produced foods and supporting local, small businesses. It’s also a bit of push-back against the globalization of agriculture, and our food and dining choices.
Founder and President of the Slow Food movement, Carlo Petrini, has said, “everyone has the right to good, clean and fair food.” Good, meaning a high quality product with a flavorful taste, clean, meaning naturalness in the way the food was produced and transported, and fair, meaning reasonable pricing and treatment for both consumers and producers.
We’re humans and we eat. Not only do we need food to sustain ourselves, but over generations, from quiet conversation over coffee to nationwide feasts, food has become central to how we celebrate our connections to each other and to our world. Sadly, those traditions collapse when we hurriedly grab a mass-produced burger that is often identical from the midwestern U.S. to a small town in Asia.
Of course, there have always been times food had to be eaten on the go. They say that’s how the sandwich was born! Still, our food choices have a ripple affect that is at least as global as a multinational food chain.
To learn more, visit the Slow Food website where you can learn how to preserve your culinary heritage, become a “co-producer” and find like-minded neighbors who may be near you or across the globe. There are hundreds of Slow Food Chapters around the world, organizing events and other opportunities to get re-connected with the magical networks of growers, processors, cooks and consumers that sustain our bodies and our souls.
