The world of non-dairy and gluten free foods can leave
many people with a tiring battle to find the best tasting
foods. Now introducing “Taste This Foods”, designed
by celebrity TV Chef Joe Ciminera has many people
A walk through Chef Joe’s kitchen in Bellmore was
similar to a tour at Willy Wonka’s Factory. The aromas
of dried rosemary, smoke and something akin to non
dairy cheddar crowd and jostle against one another in
the shiver-cool space, so concentrated that a visitor’s
experience could spark nostalgia to their all time
childhood favorite dishes.
The spare white room is filled with gadgets like I have
never seen before, each tray filled with blenders of
“cultured nut product,” Standing in the center is a chef
who is constantly tasting the quality of the products,
who is describing how it took months to find
commercial cheese cultures that weren’t grown in
cow’s milk. The staff is very big on priding themselves
that they are under a “Vegan” facility.
Chef Joe Ciminera, is no stranger to the
television-cooking world who has a glowing PBS
cooking show, “Taste This TV.” Among vegans, he is the
Godfather figure, an inventor and a statesman. When
Joe Ciminera’s Kitchen released its first products in Jan
2016, Ciminera finally began to capitalize on the artisan
non dairy, gluten free movement he helped start.
According to natural-foods market analyst Spins, natural
groceries saw annual sales of vegan and gluten free
foods rise 33.2 percent in 2014 alone to 36 million.
The new food maker’s collective goal isn’t just to
supplant the rubbery, bland alternatives that have
plagued the gluten free and the dairy free world. In their
rquest to make a vegan diet more appealing, they’re
attempting to answer the question: What makes these
products better than the rubbery ones on the market
Most other companies are still using Carrageenan,
which has some scientist calling this a very dangerous
product causing inflammation.
The vegan products that Chef Joe Ciminera made this
last year has already one awards up and down trade
