BRATTLEBORO, VT -- March 2007. Buying ingredients that are both local
and organic whenever she can, chef Sharon Myers runs a successful business
making artisan marmalades and chutneys in her professional home kitchen
in Brattleboro. Purple Chef LLC began production in 2006 with a collection
of original recipes Myers used for more than 20 years on her own table
and in her award-winning catering business. She makes everything by
hand in small batches several times a week from ingredients she herselg
has selected, inspected and taste-tested.
Food that consumers can trust, whether it ranks as a daily
staple or a delicacy with a cross-cultural heritage, is
another fundamental way to describe specialty foods. It
is the philosophy behind Myers products and it is what motivates
her to always add her personal touch to every jar.
The way Myers sees it, people ought to be able to taste
the integrity in artisan products. Presently, the Purple
Chef pantry includes seven sweet and savory products: Mango
Chutney, Tomato Marmalade, Orange Marmalade, Apple Chutney,
Jalapeno & Tomato Marmalade, Fire-Roasted Marma-Lava,
and Orange Fennel Olives. The short list of where Purple
Chef products are sold includes the Brattleboro Food Co-op;
Clearbrook Farm, Shaftsbury; Grafton Village Cheese Co.;
JK Adams, Dorset; Taylor Farms, Londonderry; Boccelli's
On the Canal, Bellows Falls; Whole Foods, Hadley, MA; and
many other quality retail markets.
