About Us

We started our business in November 2008. The idea of my Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette began when I was a Chef in the food service industry. During my time at the Pentagon in Washington, DC, I was asked to create a dressing for a health-conscious Colonel for his retirement dinner. I was limited to using only whole, all natural ingredients. I created my Vinaigrette, and after some a great response, I continued to serve it anywhere I prepared a meal.

For many years my customers raved about it, telling me it’s ‘to die for’, and that we should bottle it. I thanked them for their compliments and secretly hoped to do exactly that.

In November 2008, along with my wife, Sabrena’s business skills, we decided to take a leap of faith. We purchased some bottling supplies, and started on our dining room table. Our business blossomed, and we both now run our business full time.

Next Sunday, as part of the Maryland Sheep & Wool Festival Winterfest, we are pleased to offer a free keynote lecture entitled "The Cultural History of Natural Dyes" with Pat Brodowski. Mankind has desired colorful textiles for thousands of years. Color was highly valued and dye materials and techniques were often held secret. Pat shares the history from a European perspective: listen to the story of a secret 20 step formula for red – stolen by memorization; of the newest purple transported in the ballast of pirate ships; of the brilliant orange and magenta face paints taken by Spanish invaders, and of the young woman who created the indigo plantations of South Carolina. Find out which colors were common or royal, foraged or treasured. Your view of historic fashion will be changed forever. Pat's popular natural dyes workshops have been presented at Monticello, Montpelier, Common Ground on the Hill, and to local fiber arts groups. She is fascinated with the historic perspective on color in textiles and with all things botanical. Pat loves to share her knowledge of these things with others. This is a free virtual event.
