Late last summer I met Stephanie Biczko at the Waterbury Farmer’s Market. Her business: Not For Company is a favorite at the market! In addition to the farmer’s market Stephanie’s products can be found at:
The Cider Mill
Mountain Cheese and Wine in Stowe
The Warren Store
The East Warren Community Market
The Store in Waitsfield
Red Hen Bakery
Williston Meat Market
Shelburne Meat Market
Stephanie started her business a year and a half ago after a unexpected career change. She tells us that she “decided it would be the one chance in my life I would have to try my own thing and allow me to spend more time with my son and do something I love!”. Stephanie grows as much of her own produce and as many herbs as she can and also works with Linck Farm in Craftsbury, the Elephant Farm in Waterbury, Dog River Farm in Montpelier, VYCC in Richmond.
The Puttanesca Sauce from Not For Company is not only the best seller but also Stephanie’s favorite. She sent us home with a jar and we were happy to taste test it!
Puttanesca is a traditional sauce from Southern Italy. This sauce is known to be a bit tangy and salty with the addition of capers.
We enjoyed this sauce over spaghetti squash and with Bove’s meatballs. The sauce was very fresh (straight from the garden fresh!). It was both light (due to it’s simplicity and few ingredients) and had a richness from the capers. We ate this meal very fast and all went back for seconds.
Stephanie makes six unique products. In addition to her Puttanesca sauce she also makes BBQ sauce, Salsa Verde, Black Currant Jelly, Zucchini Chutney and Zucchini Marmalade. You have a chance to win a gift basket containing each product! See details below on how to enter this giveaway.
Enjoy eating local. Share if you want, though it’s so good, you may not want to (“Not For Company”)!
Happy New Year,
