Cheese Bytes November 2004 - First Annual American Artisanal Treasure Awards
Norbert has announced the winners of his First Annual American Artisanal Treasure Awards. The American Artisanal Treasure Awards were created by Norbert to honor producers of handmade specialty foods in three categories: Best Cheese, Best Olive Oil, and Best Condiment. Each winner will receive a Certificate of Handmade Excellence signed by Norbert. "The Cheese Store of Beverly Hills is known for carrying rare and hard to find artisanal foods and gourmet goodies. The American Artisanal Treasure Awards are my way of saying thank you to this fine Artisans," noted Norbert upon bestowing the honors.
Best Olive Oil: Olea Farm Abequina from Templeton, California
Best Condiment:Mosca's is the kind of family-run restaurant New Orleanians tend to love: it's creaky, set in its ways, and not easy to find. The late Provino and Lisa Mosca opened Mosca's in 1946, inspired by recipes from Provino's ancestral home in the Central Italian coastal town of San Benedetto del Tronto. Today the restaurant is owned by their son Johnny Mosca and his wife Mary Jo. It has employed three generations without ever bothering to produce a cookbook. However, Mosca's Muffelatta, a zesty mixture of olives, onions, anchovies, pimientos, parsley, oregano, basil, oil, garlic and vinegar, is a legend in its own time.
