A Celebration of Flavor: Honoring Georgia's Culinary Artisans 🍑🏅

A Celebration of Flavor: Honoring Georgia's Culinary Artisans 🍑🏅

This week is the event we wait for all year round: The Annual Flavor of Georgia Competition, a spotlight on the most mouthwatering creations our state has to offer!

This coming Thursday, April 4th, the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences’ will sponsor the contest at the Classic Center in Athens, GA.

Flavor of Georgia is more than a contest; it helps promote and showcase the variety and success of food entrepreneurs in the state. Since 2007, more than 1,700 products have been entered into the contest, and participating businesses have experienced increased sales, business contacts, publicity and overall interest in their products.

We're always so tickled when we see the finalist list and it includes products we already carry...and that we will be able to see some very familiar faces, makers of other amazing products that we carry on georgiacrafted.com.

Right now, we're cheering on some top-tier contenders in this year's face-off.
First up, we've got the fizzy and fabulous "Peches" Georgia peach soda from
New Creation Soda Works. It's bubbling its way to the top as a finalist in the Beverage Category with every sip promising a sweet ode to Georgia's signature fruit. 🥤🍑

Then, there's the savory kick of Buffalo Ranch Popcorn by Cork's Popcorn, which is poppin' its way to fame as a finalist in the Snack Category. One handful is all it takes to understand why—it's a flavor fiesta that's impossible to resist! 🍿🌶️

But hold on, because the delicious train doesn't stop there. We're also toasting to some phenomenal past finalists and winners that you can find right on our website:



- HIBO Energize Original Superdrink by HIBO (2023 Beverage Winner)

- Oconee Gold White Sauce by Oconee Gold (2023 BBQ Sauce Winner)

- Extra Virgin Olive Oil by Woodpecker Trail Olive Farm (2023 Miscellaneous Winner)

- Vanilla Fried Peanut Cluster by Georgia Fried Peanut Company (2020 Confections Winner)

- Sorta White Sauce by Lanes BBQ (2018 BBQ Sauce Winner)

- Georgia Pecan Shortbread by Watanut (2018 Confections Finalist)

- Sugar & Spice Cashews by Elise Artisan Nuts (formerly High Cotton Cashews)(2018 Snack Winner)

- Southern Cheese Straws by Southern Straws (2015 Snack Finalist)

Each of these delicious creations has a unique story and reflects the innovation and spirit of Georgia's food scene. So when you savor these treats, you're not just enjoying a bite; you're part of a legacy that continues to grow and impress. 🌟

We are proud to carry these delectable products on our website, and invite you to discover why they've captured the hearts (and stomachs!) of so many. Happy exploring, savoring, and supporting these local legends – one taste at a time!

And...good luck to all of the 2024 Finalists! Can't wait to cheer you on!

Q&A with CEO, Erin Zwigart

Q&A with CEO, Erin Zwigart

 

We caught up with CEO, Erin Zwigart to chat about Georgia Crafted's newly relaunched subscription box and why she's so excited to bring Georgia Crafted back to its roots. 

  1. What made you want to bring the subscription box program back to Georgia Crafted? 

Georgia Crafted was started as a subscription box company and after 4 years of non-stop searching for NEW Georgia-made products, we needed a break. We technically brought back the program late last year, but never made a formal announcement. Now, we have a new logo and new name: The Georgia Crafted Discovery Box.

 

  1. Georgia Crafted has some amazing products, how did you narrow down your selection for this first box?

August is one of my most favorite months - mainly because it's my Birthday month. :) I thought this would be the perfect time to introduce to our existing and new followers not only some of my favorite items, but what have been some of the best-sellers for the past 9 years. The products we will be including are all staples in my house! :)  

 

  1. The first box features all “Erin’s Favorites,” what other kind of themed boxes can we look out for in the subscription program?

September is going to be super fun, along the same lines of "Erin's Favorites", we will be introducing to everyone "Lunch Box Favorites". This will be a collection of Georgia-made items that our two girls (ages 10 and 12) love to pack in their lunch boxes...and items we think are perfect for adult lunch boxes too!

October is, as far as we are concerned, the BEST month out of the entire year as we kick off Fall. You will be seeing a completely new collection of Fall favorites.

November will be centered around a Thankful theme.

 

  1. What’s a brand or product not currently in the Georgia Crafted lineup that you’d love to have included.

I would love to see products from Paula Deen, as she is one of my favorite Southern chefs. I'd also LOVE to find some cheeses that we could ship that are OK to not be refrigerated during the shipping process. 

 

  1. What’s your biggest hope for the relaunch of the subscription box?

I would love to get back to our roots...share more stories about our makers and finding new people that are really excited about "discovering" Georgia-made goodies. 

 

  1. What are three words that best describe this relaunch?

Discover Georgia Products.

or

We Can't Wait. 

 

  1. What’s your biggest goal for Georgia Crafted over the next year?

I don't want to reveal too much, but we have some REALLY exciting things planned. Think...EXPANSION. ;)  

 

  1. What brings you the most joy about being CEO for Georgia Crafted?

Relationships. I love, love, love building new relationships with our makers and learning their stories. It has brought me so much joy to meet these folks and I have developed friendships for a lifetime. And, I have to say that sampling new products is pretty darn fun too. :) 

 

The subscription box can be purchased for 1, 3 or 6 months and is perfect for gifts, or just treating yourself and discovering new Georgia made products. We hope you'll consider subscribing!

Maker of the Week: Meet Megan Miller of Hale Tea Co.

Maker of the Week: Meet Megan Miller of Hale Tea Co.

With roots tracing back to a humble tea shop in London in 1872, Hale Tea Co. was brought to Savannah in 1989 by the Hale family. Today, Hale Tea Co. is owned and operated by Megan Miller, a self-proclaimed Local Tea Lady. 

Megan believes that tea makes a positive contribution to the body and soul and loves how crafting tea blends combines several of her passions and puts both her left and right brain to work. A local SCAD graduate, she strives to bring tea and design together by working with local artists and purveying the highest quality ingredients. We had the chance to catch up with Megan and ask her a few questions about Hale Tea Co. and what 2022 holds for this small business.

1. When did you develop an interest in making tea blends and why?

    I’ve always been fascinated with tea and the process from farm to cup. There are so many varieties and so many factors that play in the flavor and development of tea. For me, the blending process combines several passions of mine and allows me to use my left and right brain at the same time! 

    2. If you have a cup of tea morning, noon and night, which blends would you personally choose to sip on during those times and why?

    In the morning, I sip on English Breakfast or Darjeeling, the perfect first cup of tea with just the right amount of caffeine to get my morning started! In the afternoon, I treat myself to a latte style tea usually a London Fog with Earl Grey and Lavender. In the evening, I switch between Defense and Relax. Both are naturally caffeine-free herbal blends perfect to wind down my day but full of healthy benefits!

    3. We saw on your Insta page that you went to "paradise" recently on vacation and were getting inspired about new tea blends. Any hints as to what we may see in 2022?

    Saint Lucia definitely was paradise and so needed to remind myself to slow down and enjoy all the little things in life! You can be on the lookout for some exciting new tropical inspired flavors in the summer months! These will be able to be enjoyed iced as well!

    4. Besides sipping on tea, what are some of your favorite hobbies?

    Besides spending time with my husband and son I have developed a passion for baking! I have been experimenting with baking with tea and hope to share some exciting news soon that correlates to this! I also love to travel, it opens up my creativity and is always a lot of inspiration! 

    You can find Hale Tea Co. Defense Herbal Remedy Tea, a delicious Herbal tea that contains apple, ginger, orange peel, peppermint, eucalyptus leaves, sage leaves and elderberry flowers, and their Georgia Peach Tea, high-quality Black Peach tea in a beautiful box featuring a scene of the Savannah bridge. Order both of these amazing teas here.

    Maker Monday: Meet Carla Foster, Carson Bryce Trading Company

    Maker Monday: Meet Carla Foster, Carson Bryce Trading Company

    Today’s Maker Monday is extra special because we had the chance to catch up with Carla Foster of Carson Bryce Trading Company.



    Fun fact: Carla was our first-ever artisan partner back in 2013 and we have carried her Atlanta Love, formerly named White Peach Vanilla, soap since. She creates some of the most divine smelling bath & body products.

    Find out more about this lovely maker below.

    1. Who is the inspiration behind "Carson Bryce Trading Company"?
    Carson Bryce Trading Co. Is inspired by my infant son of the same name. Carson Bryce Johnson lived for 30 days. He was born premature. It remains the most traumatic event of my life. However, his life lives on in such a bigger way. Everything I do and make is in his honor.

    2. How have your product creations helped you over the past several years?
    Making products is a healing process for me. I feel my son encouraging me every step of the way. My process of creating is rooted in the love I have for him and my other son Chancellor Troy Johnson. Everything I make is rooted in love!!!!

    3. What has been your all-time favorite type of product to make and why?
    Hard to choose. So much of Carson Bryce Trading Company is also curating antiques and found goods for the home. I adore that as well. I love making soap and candles but I also live making sugar scrubs. Lip balms and body butter. Bath bombs i make with Chance. That's really fun!!!

    4. What are some new scents/products we may see in 2022?
    I recently debuted my healing energy and big money energy soaps. Omg!!! Divine I tell you. Divine!!! I am also working on the most scrumptious body butter evah! By Spring it will be done. Can't wait to share it!!!

    You can order your very own bar of Atlanta love soap by Carson Bryce Trading Company on our website, georgiacrafted.com.

    Maker Monday: Meet Briana Carson, Crave Pie Studio

    Maker Monday: Meet Briana Carson, Crave Pie Studio

    Who doesn't love pie?! We are big fans of this delicious dessert especially when it comes from Crave Pie. On this Maker Monday, we caught up with Briana Carson of Crave Pie Studio to find out more about how she became a pie master and what flavors she loves most. 

    1. When did you start on your journey of pie-baking? I began baking pies in 2010 after being laid off from my 20 year corporate job.  I attended culinary school to begin a new chapter in life, and had to bake an apple pie for the Baking 101 final.  I fell in love with the craft, and more importantly, with how pies make people feel.  I dropped out of school to pursue pie baking as a full time business and opened my first location in 2012.
    2. What is your all-time favorite pie? That depends on the season! Spring: Strawberry Rhubarb; Summer: Peach; Fall: Roasted Pumpkin and Winter: Spiced Cranberry Apple Pear with Walnut Streusel.  I guess fruit pies are my favorite!
    3. Can you give us a sneak preview into some new flavors that may be coming out in 2022? We are always developing new pie recipes that showcase our Georgia grown pecans, peaches and blueberries.  Our menu of specials changes daily and with the seasons.
    4. What do you love to do for fun (besides bake delicious pies)? I love shopping at farmers markets and attending art festivals. I also enjoy cooking and dining.  
    5. If someone isn't familiar with Crave Pie, where can they go (besides Georgia Crafted) to get their hands on a delicious pie? We have two physical stores: 3107 Main Street, Duluth and 360 Commerce Street in Alpharetta City Center.  Both locations are in walkable retail/dining destinations. Custom orders can be placed online at cravepie.com.  You can follow us online and check out our daily specials menus at @cravepie on Facebook and Instagram.

    Having a craving for Crave Pie? You can find their delicious Chocolate Bourbon Truffle Mini Pie in our 2022 Valentine's Day gift box
