Spending summers on her grandparents' farm in Greece whetted Anna Zoitas's appetite for globetrotting and healthy, handcrafted cuisine. After refining her palate on further travels through Europe, Asia, and the Caribbean, she became a judge for the prestigious International Fancy Food Show. There, she examined more than 2,000 specialty foods and beverages, many of which she now stocks in The Artisanal Kitchen's online pantry.
Carefully crafted in small batches, all of Anna's handpicked products come from all-natural organic ingredients, from extra-virgin olive oils and jams to kosher, gluten-free coffee made from arabica beans grown 4,000–6,000 feet above sea level—roughly the height of the Jolly Green Giant’s top hat. Anna provides quick, healthy recipes on the shop's website, many of which incorporate products—such as arbosana olive oil—that can help boost health and reduce the risk of heart disease.
