Specializing in spreads, Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen makes Smoked Chili-Rosemary Mustard and Champagne Tomato Jam. This gourmet “ketchup and mustard” can be used anywhere you usually use regular ketchup or mustard or you can use them in new and exciting ways. Both are available at Provisions Waxhaw and will be available to sample on Saturday May 20th in store.
Alyssa Wilen and her husband Andrew Wilen, of Charlotte, NC, started Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen in January 2016. Alyssa explains, “I teach cooking classes full time at our company Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen in South End, Charlotte. I get the chance to interact with so many people and I started to see the need for something to help people make fantastic, delicious food at home.
These two spreads are items I have made over the years to incorporate in dishes and guests would ask me all the time for more, so we decided to produce them!” When Lisa Vigil, co-owner of Provisions Waxhaw, heard about Chef Alyssa’s condiments she asked for a sample to try. Vigil always personally tests the products she tests in her store and she knew that Chef Alyssa’s Kitchen was on to something! Alyssa loves having her products in Provisions, confessing that “We get to spread our name out a little further than Charlotte. We have established our brand here, but there are so many areas we can reach, so having the products in Provisions Waxhaw is a great step towards that.”
