ChefShop.com is nominated for a Luxist Award in the Best Online Gourmet Food category.
Located in Seattle, ChefShop.com was started ten years ago in 1999 by a group of people that wanted to change the way people thought about and approached their food. The company's mission is to find the best, healthiest foods and goods from artisans and traditional small farmers around the world and bring them to consumers in the U.S. Chefshop.com is fighting against mass market food production and unsustainable farming practices in hopes of fostering the sale of healthier foods with more flavor and value. ChefShop.com is especially proud of the fact that they work directly with their chosen producers and as a result get the freshest, most flavorful goods possible.
Chefshop.com has both a mail-order website and a brick-and-mortar retail store in Seattle. The store also opened in 1999 and offers, in addition to its many shelves of baked and grocery goods, tasting bars for olive oil, jams, honeys, sea salts, and vinegar. The website, on the other hand, is especially shopper-friendly thanks to options of shopping not only by keyword or category but also by recipe and by what's fresh that day.
Goods must meet several stringent criteria before ChefShop.com will consider carrying them and to date their selection exceeds 1000 items from all over the world.
Vote now for what you believe is the best of breed in Gourmet Foods. Readers' Choice Awards for Food will be announced on November 30th.
