Small Batch Organic Ghee: Non-GMO and Vegetarian from Grass-Fed & Pasture-Raised Cows
In 2008 Sandeep Agarwal left a job on Wall Street to start Pure Indian Foods with his wife Nalini Agarwal. Sandeep & Nalini identified an opportunity to introduce high quality ghee to the United States based on a time-honored family process dating back to 1889 in India. “My wife Nalini makes all the ghee herself. It’s an art; she knows instinctively when it’s done, so that the ghee is neither underdone nor burnt. I joke that the only way for us to make more ghee is for me to have many wives.” – Sandeep Agarwal
Ghee is clarified butter with milk solids removed. This process takes out casein and lactose, making it an excellent alternative to butter for those with dairy intolerance. Pure Indian Foods uses only non-homogenized milk from cows during the spring and fall, when the grass is growing rapidly. When eating fresh grass, cows produce a high amount of fat-soluble vitamins and conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) in their milk. Pure Indian Foods is among the best-selling organic ghee brands and is available through http://www.pureindianfoods.com, on Amazon, and at select Whole Foods.

The story of Delicious & Sons is a love story between people and food. Created by Ricky Mandle & Monica Navarro, two entrepreneurs united in their respect for small producers and a passion for Mediterranean cuisine. The Mediterranean itself is an attitude, a positive way of thinking, taking pleasure in the little things, good food, easy to use, and good for you. They believe that we are what we eat, and everybody deserves to enjoy the best that life - and food - has to offer.
Delicious & Sons offers a complete range of authentic, made in the Mediterranean products that are all natural, USDA organic, non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and vegetarian, and without added sugars. They meticulously source all of their ingredients in origin, controlling the process from field to factory, using only high quality ingredients such as extra virgin olive oil to create unique and great tasting products that are easy-to-use and ready-to-eat. Try Delicious & Sons' Black Truffle & Mushroom Sauce in our Italian Truffle Risotto kit or shop all their products at deliciousandsons.com.
Teff Company founder Wayne Carlson first became involved with Ethiopia during the early 1970s. He lived as a guest of the local farming community, and found the farmers eager to show their crops. Wayne became devoted to the local food, and soon discovered that while the farmers had a wide variety of crops, they preferred to grow and eat teff.
Later, back in Idaho, Wayne was fascinated by the similarities of the Snake River region and the East African Rift’s climates and geology. Both are borne from major dynamics in the earth’s crust, resulting in massive basaltic lava flows and tectonic movements. Both are subjected to hot summers with intense sunlight. An idea formed that the Snake River Valley may be perfect for growing teff. And why not import some wisdom from an ancient culture to the West for a change? Once we started growing, word spread to Ethiopians living in American metropolitan areas as they reconnected with their favorite grain. The Teff Company has been supplying the Ethiopian and Eritrean communities for nearly thirty years with American-grown Maskal Teff. With fertile fields and ecologically-sensitive farming methods, some of the best quality teff in the world is produced in Idaho. Today Maskal Teff is available nationally in health food stores and directly from teffco.com.
Our Ethiopian Spiced Lentils & Injera Kit (Misr Wat) features Eleni’s original kulet simmer sauce which was spotlighted in a 2009 edition of The New York Times Dining and Wine section. The sauce evokes the traditional, open-flame style of Ethiopian cooking and is rich in exotic aromas. It…is…SO…good!
Eleni Woldeyes was born in Ethiopia. In 2001, her mother received an invitation to attend a relative’s wedding in Atlanta. “We had always wanted to come (to the United States), so when we got the wedding invitation, that was it,” she said. After the wedding, the family moved permanently to the U.S. where Woldeyes attended graduate school and met her husband. She spent a few years working in accounting before discovering her passion for cooking and launching Eleni’s Kitchen.
