  "We produce my recipes with my health conscious twist having worked with most prominent cuisines of the world having worked in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, North Hollywood, Santa Ana, Glendale and Las Feliz CA for 10 years with 2 master Chef in Southern California. Now we are gearing up for high volume production, several of my career recipes currently to bring quality, healthy, amazing flavors to the market place.

My family ancestors from Poland came through Ellis Island in 1882 and 83 and helped create the European agriculture that exists today in Southern Colorado's Pueblo County called the “Mesa” near the Arkansas river and grew cabbage and celery root along the Fountain river at the end of the 1880's until the middle of the 1960's, 75 plus years. My German ancestors (moms father) built after returning back home at the end of WWII from serving our US Army one of the first small diners in the mid-west (Powell Wyoming). Food production and service is a huge part of my family history.  I discovered my grand and great grand parents foot steps when a very young boy in my Polish and German grandmothers kitchens.   Now with my own stride, on my own path in my own kitchen, I've carved the beginning of my own legacy of notable food products. I thank you for your patronage of our locally owned and operated wholesale manufacturing company. It's truly a pleasure to bring our premium quality products to now Lakewood, Green Mountain, Aurora, Denver, Pueblo, Georgetown, Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, Woodland Park, Boulder, Wheat Ridge, Louisville, Lafayette, Vail Valley, Denver International Airport, Casper, WY and all of Colorado soon.
