Valente Market Pasta: Like many of the makers that The Main Gourmet works with, this company is a woman-owned small family business. Fran Valente and her family have been handcrafting their pasta in Chartoltesville Virginia for forty years, and they retain their commitment to letting Mother Nature be a part of both their team and their recipes, with no artificial flavors and non-GMO vegetables, herbs, and seasonings. The family mixes, rolls, cuts, and air dries their pasta using American-grown and milled wheat flour. All of that tradition blends beautifully with their family’s on-trend flavor inspirations, to create a pasta experience that your family will surely savor.Yo Mama’s Foods: Company Founder and Chief Foodie Dave Zabib took his inspiration from the sense of community that his Mama fostered in her kitchen. Dave recognized that the memories made around the family table lasted long after the food was gone, and he set out to create a collection of sauces that was sure to elevate the offerings on American dinner tables. Since launching his company in 2017, Dave has propelled his products straight through the stratosphere, as Yo Mama’s Foods has caught the attention of BuzzFeed, Popsugar, Forbes, Eat This Not That, the LA Times, The Spruce Eats, Yahoo, and of course all of us here at The Main Gourmet! We also love that it’s naturally gluten free, preservative free, dairy free, and even keto certified!!.
The Gracious Gourmet: This woman-owned company is based in my home state of Connecticut, and its creation story is one that I love: take one career woman, add a passion for travel and cuisine, and overlay a love of entertaining… there you have The Gracious Gourmet! Nancy Wekselbaum’s mastery of sauté, flambé, and soufflé translates deliciously into her collection of chutneys, jams, tapenades, and pestos, many of which we carry at The Main Gourmet. Of course, they’re made in small batches with simple, all-natural ingredients, and like so many of the products we curate, most are naturally gluten free, preservative free, and vegan.
Jocelyn & Co: Out of the shade of the mountains surrounding Phoenix rose a small company looking to redefine the gourmet food gift basket industry. Over the last two decades, Debbie Quintana has become an internationally renowned leader in gift basket design and curation, and The Main Gourmet is very happy to bring her selections to Smithfield. Debbie’s discerning palate and elegant package designs are just what you need for your hostess, corporate, or holiday gift giving.
Rosanna: When five-year-old Rosanna Bowles purchased her first Limoges plate, the little girl began a life-long love affair with European art and culture. After completing degrees in Italian Art and Literature, Rosanna founded her company in 1982 and quickly became a globally acclaimed lifestyle brand. Her trend-setting tableware has been featured in O Magazine (“Women Making Beautiful Things” 2008), and can be purchased at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Smithsonian Institute, The White House Historical Association, and at The Main Gourmet, right here in Smithfield, Virginia.
