Our Story

 

    The thought started as far back as a student leaving high school and heading to the Culinary Institute of America. After a grueling twenty months of hard study, a passion and love of food would truly be gifted to me by some of the best chefs from around the world, all teaching in one place. I used the time to pick their brains and learn as much as I could during this short period of time. My time at the Culinary Institute of America reassured me that my love for gastronomy would be in my life no matter what or how and or what form.  I would make a way to bring food and my love of food to others. As long as we have markets to buy fresh, hardy, local ingredients and for as long as these markets are here to serve crowds of hungry people looking for something new and exciting to eat. We will be there to shop local, eat local, and sell local.

    Bleu Basil LLC began a few years ago in Daytona Beach, Florida selling jam, jellies, preserves, relishes, breads, and pies. We worked at the local markets and local shows building our business. Having grown our business in that area of the state, Bleu Basil LLC decided to take the business in a different direction. 

    Now, in Ocala Florida we have a complete new outlook with Bleu Basil LLC Pasta! We are selling all different types of pasta using my own special blended flour I worked with for many years on this blend and now I have decided to introduce it to the public: the response has been wonderful. We are making flavors using sun-dried tomato, saffron chive, black bean, roasted garlic, spinach, and much more, every week we try a new flavor. Your feedback is most important and will help determine what we offer in the future.

Our promise here at Bleu Basil, LLC is to produce our full flavored pastas and special orders using as much locally sourced ingredients as possible We will also expand to meet our customer’s needs. Most important, we are here to have a Pasta of a time. 

Sincerely, 

Bleu Basil LLC, Always Fresh
