KosherEye Featured Product


R. Torre & Company, producers of Torani Flavored Syrups, have been creating their sweet syrups since 1925. It started when Rinaldo and Ezilda Torre visited family in Lucca, Italy and returned home to their native San Francisco with something very important: handwritten recipes, which they used to create authentic flavored syrups. They used their syrups to make the Italian soda and, fast- forward several decades, their syrups were used to create the world’s first flavored latte! What started out with five flavored syrups, today numbers one hundred flavors - what a selection! This global company still remains family-own and adhering to the high quality standards that Rinaldo and Ezilda set nearly 90 years ago. We love the many flavors of Torani syrups and add them to our coffee - our special treat at the end of a very hectic day and are currently working our way through a bottle of Salted Caramel Syrup - oh, is this good! We are working our way through this list of Torani Salted Caramel coffee recipes.

The company believes in Sustainability and that "doing good for our business and doing good for the world go hand-in-hand. Look at it this way: if we all make a commitment to this earth, it'll be a better place to live and…have a latte."

san-gennaro-foods-southern-style-gritsGrits are truly an American food, and a comfort food staple. Though traditionally southern grits have gone mainstream and are now on the menu of many upscale restaurants, nationwide. Classically served as part of the southern country breakfast, grits are quickly becoming a part of any meal. Many now serve grits as a side for fish, topped with cheese, or alongside chicken.

Can't find traditional grits? Look no further, San Gennaro Southern Style Grits come in a log, We’ve all seen ready to heat logs of polenta, logs of quinoa, the log is already pre–cooked and ready to heat and serve.

KosherEye certainly knows their grits.  So what do we think? This log of  Southern style grits is good, not quite like traditional homemade, long cooking grits, but convenient and ready to pop in the microwave. fun on vacation, for kids away at college or for a quick side of grits at home. Try it but do add some cheddar and butter!
