Domaine de Provence
I travel throughout the world and in my travels, I can't help but look over the horizon and see the varieties of trees, the crops growing in the fields and the herbs that grow wild. Provence is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Those who live in Europe are highly dependent of the wonderful agricultural products that come from these areas that surround the Mediterranean Sea. The fragrances of the aromatized olives, the oils, the fresh fruits when in season, are paralleled by the history and culture. These products we have selected to have produced for Sid Wainer & Son from the Domaine de Provence are a clear representation of the quality of the ingredients that are expected of cultivated foods and the ingredients for chefs from this region.
Fondo di Toscana
Many years ago, I traveled to Italy and fell in love with their appreciation towards incredible agricultural products. Although Italy has grown into many regions, we find Tuscany to be the best at producing high quality ingredients from wonderful agricultural products for you, the chef : from olive oils, to marinated and grilled vegetables that have won numerous awards in Outstanding Foodservice category at the Fancy Food Show, to the white anchovies recognized as Best Seafood. Our artichoke paste, our grilled marinated antipasto, vine-ripened sauces and pastas were once used for celebrating of Sunday in Tuscany of old.
Fondo di Toscana's high quality products and ingredients that are grown from the richest soils in the Mediterranean are what you'll find in our line of Fondo di Toscana products at Sid Wainer & Son.
Fondo di Trebbiano
Tradition. This is the only way to make a wonderful balsamic vinegar. Trebbiano grapes are juiced and moved from barrel to barrel over a long period of time. These barrels are housed in barns of old in Modena, Italy. A true flavoring of natural woods over time, never corking the barrel, but placing a small stone from the local river in Modena in order to allow the balsamic to dissipate in a slow, gradual way, is what makes our balsamic vinegar from Modena the finest in the world
We offer this vinegar at different maturities, 3-, 8-, 12-, or 25-year old is available. Your choice is based on the density and flavor of age you search out.
Sid Wainer & Son is descended from a third generation produce company which sold produce off push carts on the cobblestone streets of what was at that time the seafood capital of the world and whaling was still one of the main industries in the port of New Bedford. They dealt with farms throughout the south coast of New England. The topography was warm from the jet stream that travels up the East Coast of the United States. These relationships, three generations later, still exist. We've expanded upon those relationships and now have developed an agricultural bond with farms that grow exclusively for us, practicing the sustainable agriculture that we are so dedicated to for not only ourselves, but for future generations. These are the farms that produce great agricultural products and package under the Jansal Valley as well as the Jansal Valley 1st Pick label. First Pick is the freshest fruits and vegetables grown under the sun and packaged exclusively for us.
For three generations, our family has developed wonderful relationships with tree-ripened farmers around the world. "I remember growing up and working through the night with my mom and dad, creating baskets of fruit for all the different holiday seasons. Not only was it the wonderful quality of the fruit but the care we put into handling the product that make it extra special," recalls Henry Wainer. Sid Wainer & Son has developed a profound reputation for handling and distributing fresh produce "hand-picked from the world's finest farms"® and offer you this luxury not only through the holidays but as a daily, weekly or monthly amenity or gift for friends, family and or business associates.
Kilchurn Estate Preserves
Kilchurn Estate preserves, curds, and marmalades are produced in Scotland. The secret to their wonderful flavor is the use of the highest quality berries and other wonderful ingredients, which are simmered in open pans, precisely to reach the perfect setting point.
