Since then, Martin’s Handmade Pretzels have won countless fans with their rich flavor and deep crunch. There is no way to imagine the difference between machine and handmade pretzels without tasting.  Ed Levine, in New York Eats, writes that Martin’s Handmade Pretzels—a fixture in NYC’s Greenmarkets since 1982—are to machine-made pretzels what a BMW is to a Yugo.  Tasting a mere crumb tells the whole story: progress took the “S” out of the Slow Pretzel and left it with the last three letters: “L-O-W.” Low, compromised quality.  Proudly, our exact recipe—AND our commitment to slow, artisan food—has remain unchanged since the first Martin’s Pretzel came out of the drying oven over 80 years ago.  As we say around here: HANDMADE FOREVER![/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][eltd_section_subtitle color="" text_align="left" text="Available in the these Kits:" width=""][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="8614,9696,8950" onclick="custom_link" custom_links="www.batchandbodega.com/trailblazer,www.batchandbodega.com/snack-attack,www.batchandbodega.com/hello" css=".vc_custom_1601528649313{padding-top: 20px !important;}"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][vc_video link="https://vimeo.com/463669161"][vc_empty_space height="20px"][mpc_grid_images preset="mpc_preset_3" images="9605" cols="1" gap="20" image_size="full" image_opacity="100" effect="none" image_hover_opacity="92"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

Doing things the old-fashioned way was commonplace. Elias later journeyed to Europe to apprentice in the kitchens of masters. It was there that he rediscovered the art of curing meat and found inspiration in the markets and mountain towns of the old world. Back in beautiful Portland, Oregon, Elias set out to approach the craft of charcuterie with purity and patience, recreating a nearly extinct traditional technique that is seldom seen in America. The result is Olympia Provisions, Oregon’s first USDA-approved salumeria, established in 2009, deeply rooted in the past.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][eltd_section_subtitle color="" text_align="left" text="Available in the these Kits:" width=""][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="9590" onclick="custom_link" custom_links="www.batchandbodega.com/road-trip,www.batchandbodega.com/riseandshine"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][mpc_grid_images preset="mpc_preset_3" images="9587" cols="1" gap="20" image_size="full" image_opacity="100" effect="none" image_hover_opacity="92"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

For nearly 50 years, KaiYen’s family honed their craft and developed successful family recipes that have been passed on for generations. The idea of Fusion Jerky came to KaiYen as she summited Mt. Kilimanjaro, the highest mountain in Africa. Protein was essential for the 6-day hike and the grueling feat revealed to her, the essential nutritional needs for optimal performance and flavor qualities that would motivate her through the most challenging days on the trail. Control over quality is critical to KaiYen, which is why she decided to build her own state-of-the-art processing facility in the rural town of Scottsbluff, Nebraska in 2012. By doing so, KaiYen was ensured that every step of the jerky process meets her discerning standard of taste, texture and premier ingredients.After months of testing and tweaking, KaiYen finally finalized eight of the flavors. Fusion Jerky launched in 2014 as one of the first jerky brands to feature an all natural chicken jerky – leading the industry to new heights.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][eltd_section_subtitle color="" text_align="left" text="Available in the these Kits:" width=""][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="9607,9613" onclick="custom_link" custom_links="www.batchandbodega.com/snack-attack,www.batchandbodega.com/road-trip"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][mpc_grid_images preset="mpc_preset_3" images="9586" cols="1" gap="20" image_size="full" image_opacity="100" effect="none" image_hover_opacity="92"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

As Shrek and Fiona were walking through a field, Fiona sees cobwebs laced with bugs. She grabs a stick and weaves it into a cotton candy-like dessert for Shrek. That's when Jason had his "ah-ha moment". He wondered why cotton candy doesn’t have ingredients weaved in. Fast forward to 2013, Jason reached out to Justin Isip and Nathaniel Villegas to co-found Sugar & Spun in June 2013. Gone are the days of boring and overly sweet blue or pink cotton candy.

(Yes, you can get laid off and also held to such things!) Laura had lost her usual means to earn a living for a full year and was determined to take control over her future and not wait for that non-compete clause to expire. Fatefully, after making a batch of her favorite childhood cookies for a party, a friend suggested she come sell her amazing “cracker cookies” at a holiday market. After selling out in only a few hours, she knew they were a hit and a new business was born! She spent the next year learning the food business at night and during the day, worked as an in-house caterer. Eleven months later, a few stores in New York City agreed to carry Legally Addictive, including the flagship location of Dylan’s Candy Bar. At the time, Laura was making the cookies in the off-hours of a bakery in Brooklyn, often until well past midnight, and then delivering them around town on the subway and on foot. Fast forward a few years later and Legally Addictive has now built their own production kitchen in Brooklyn, has a full-time baking staff and is carried in over 400 retailers and hotels in North America.[/vc_column_text][eltd_separator position="center" width="o" thickness="0" top_margin="20" bottom_margin="20"][eltd_section_subtitle color="" text_align="left" text="Available in the these Kits:" width=""][vc_gallery type="image_grid" images="9615,9607" onclick="custom_link" custom_links="www.batchandbodega.com/cookies-crumbs,www.batchandbodega.com/snack-attack"][/vc_column][vc_column width="1/2"][mpc_grid_images preset="mpc_preset_3" images="9579" cols="1" gap="20" image_size="full" image_opacity="100" effect="none" image_hover_opacity="92"][/vc_column][/vc_row]...

This time, we got really lucky. It was in my grandfather Herb’s safe, in a dusty old basement, that I found a weathered notepad with a collection of cocktail recipes. Herb and his good friend Lou had invented these cocktails and served them to friends, family, and fellow adventurers whenever they got the chance. They traveled everywhere, both for the military and for pleasure, sampling the finest natural ingredients from around the world. Their cocktails were delicious and legendary. Herb & Lou liked to enjoy a party and hated getting stuck mixing drinks all night, so they mixed up a batch beforehand (without the booze) and froze it in ice cube trays. During the party, all anyone needed to do was pour a splash of booze into a glass or shaker with a couple of the frozen cocktail cubes and voila…a Brilliantly Crafted Cocktail. It turned everyone into a Master Mixologist with just a shake or a stir. Now, decades later, Herb & Lou’s grandsons are proud to bring you Herb & Lou’s Infused Cubes. Our grandfathers intended each flavor to pair with a particular type of spirit, but we like to experiment with the pairings and encourage you to do the same. Herb & Lou's Infused Cubes can be used with a single spirit for an easy, delicious cocktail or used as an ingredient in an invention of your own.  Go ahead and be creative...
