PRLog - Jan. 27, 2009 - NEW YORK -- New York, NY - Can a small entrepreneurial company prosper by doing some good for America’s family-owned farms and small creative kitchens? The owners of American Feast are convinced the answer is yes.
The company delivers food straight from family farms and artisans preparing specialties to customers across the United States. It’s free-range, Applewood Smoked Pheasant from Wisconsin’s MacFarlane Farm sold by American Feast was just served at President Obama’s Inauguration Dinner, and just a few weeks ago the company’s hand-harvested Manoomin (authentic wild rice) was served for New Year’s Eve Dinner at Alice Waters’ famed Chez Panisse.
Jeff Deasy, American Feast’s president, says, “The company’s founders have done pretty well growing up in the U.S. We were able to attend good schools and use our educations to succeed in the world. We want to give something back by making American Feast a success for the folks who provide us with exceptional food. If we can help improve their financial situations, we’ll be making a contribution to a healthier and more sustainable food system.”
The company’s Chef Advisor Jesse Frost says, “By supporting family-scale farming we’re supporting the wisdom of sustainable agriculture. Small farmers can produce the highest quality and freshest ingredients possible for preparing the most delicious meals.
Chef Jesse went on to say, “We’re part of the slow food community that celebrates local, seasonal and artisanal cooking. Natural products make for light, fresh cuisine that cleanses the body and rejuvenates the mind.”
Mr. Deasy added, “The superb quality of American foods deserves recognition among the world’s best. The foods we offer have won a lot of national and international awards. We think people will keep coming back for more.”
Besides offering foods produced naturally on sustainable farms and artisanal foods made in small creative kitchens, the American Feast web site provides a tremendous amount of information on healthy eating and cooking, and there are plenty of free recipes calling for ingredients from America’s family farms and creative kitchens.
