Yesterday, I was fortunate enough to be introduced to several items in the new Wild Harvest line of organic and natural products. The line was introduced at a lunch at Telepan. (May really is my month. Back-story: earlier in the year during Restaurant Week, I wanted to visit Telepan, but they were booked up. Fast forward to yesterday – I get to eat an amazing meal there and learn some valuable tips from the chef. How cool is that?! Note to self: remind husband that we need to go on a kid-free dinner to Telepan). In any event, Chef Bill Telepan was so helpful – he has been using seasonal organic and natural foods in his cooking throughout his career. The meal (which used several Wild Harvest products) was also delicious. The menu was tomato soup with rice & beans; pan-roasted chicken breast and strawberry granite parfait (yum!) for dessert. (I have the recipes for all three dishes, so email me if you’d like them.)
The event was hosted by Supervalu, a grocery retailer that operates under several names (including Acme, Albertsons, etc.). They also supply groceries to a variety of independent stores. Recently, they launched the new Wild Harvest brand of organic and natural products with around 160 current products. The goal is to grow to 250+ products. The neat things about this line of products (the items that I tried anyway) are the following:
-Not only are they healthy but they are also tasty (a must for my picky kid eaters).
-The products are reasonably priced (which is important to my pocketbook!). The line is around 15% lower than other branded organic and natural products.
On an earlier blog post, I wrote that I would not only eat organic products. I am trying to eat more organic products though, so I’m eager for the Wild Harvest products to hit the NYC market. (Acme grocery stores in NJ are the closest chain of stores in the NYC area that will be carrying the line.)
