Buying Local

We’re proud of the local farms and companies we buy from. Here’s who they are:

ADOLF’S MEAT & SAUSAGE KITCHEN CT
With a huge variety of smoked meat products, in-house made sausages, breads, cheeses, and imported condiments, Adolf’s is focused on quality. This Polish-owned butcher shop has some of the best bratwurst and kielbasa around, but also offers other great European specialities.

HARTFORD BAKING CO. CT
“We believe in starting with great ingredients and taking the time to perfect our products. From our breads to our cupcakes, everything we produce is hand-crafted with patience and attention to detail. Every morning, our bakers and pastry chefs mix and bake everything from scratch to make sure you’re getting the freshest product possible.”

WESTFORD HILL DISTILLERY CT
“Imagine walking through a perfect country orchard on a clear, bright summer day. Suddenly, your senses are overwhelmed by the aromatic purity and power of fresh fruit. That is the eau de vie experience. Simply defined, it is clear fruit brandy, a distilled spirit made from 100% natural fruit. Pure, yet powerful. Delicate and delectable. Although Europeans have prized eau de vie or “water of life” for generations, the first sip is a completely new experience for most Americans. In the spirit of the artisan distillers, Westford Hill Distillers proudly blends European tradition with American craftsmanship, starting with the highest quality fruit from the abundant orchards of the northeast. Saveur Magazine called us, “The best thing to do with fruit in Connecticut.” We invite you to explore for yourself.”

BOGNER QUALITY MEATS CT – www.bognerqualitymeats.com
Since 1942 Bogner Quality Meats has thrived providing quality meat products to restaurants and locals at our retail outlets. With over 70 years experience we know who the best suppliers are and buy direct. Our mission is simple, “serve our customers with quality products and offer exceptional service”. Stop buy and let us earn your business.

BRIONI’S COFFEE CT – www.brionis.com
Brioni’s Ultra Premium Coffees employ a proprietary state of the art roasting method we call DROASTING™.

We utilize the DROASTING™ process to distinguish our product from less flavorful competitors. Most Roasters employ “wet-roasting”, which involves drenching the roasted coffee beans with water to hastily cool them to make the roasters ready for more beans.

When Brioni’s Coffees undergo the delicate, deliberate DROASTING™ process, the coffee beans are dry roasted in small batches using convection heat, then gently and slowly air cooled in a very controlled environment. This ensures a much more flavorful bean, which produces a more robust, delicious coffee beverage.

We’re confident that one sip of our handcrafted coffee is all it will take to turn you into a “Brioni’s Believer” too.

CT FARM FRESH EXPRESS CT – www.ctffe.com
We believe in eating local. We believe in supporting our Connecticut farmers and small business in general. We are, after all, a small business ourselves. This service is for Connecticut residents only.

We deliver locally grown, mostly organic, fresh vegetables, fruit, dairy products, meat, baked goods, maple syrup, local honey, and much more directly from local farms and producers right to your door. Whether it’s a home or a restaurant that wants to serve local, fresh food, we are here to provide it for you.

THE FARMERS COW CT
The Farmers Cow is a group of six Connecticut, family-owned dairy farms. We believe in what we do – protecting open space and our precious agricultural heritage for future generations.

Our dairy products include fresh milk, chocolate milk, half & half, heavy cream, ricotta cheese, ice cream and ice cream sandwiches. We also sell eggs, cider, coffee and summer seasonal beverages!
www.thefarmerscow.com

J. FOSTER ICE CREAM CT – www.jfostericecream.com
We produce in small batches our quality homemade ice cream, gelato, sorbetto, sherbet and frozen yogurt. We also offer custom cakes and pie for any occasion as well as ice cream novelties. We begin with the finest dairy products available, pure bourbon and tahitian vanillas, imported cocoas, fresh roasted nuts and premium in season fruits to create ice creams unequaled in quality and taste. We minimize the amount of air whipped into our ice cream, unlike most others. As a result our ice cream is denser, richer in taste, creamier and full of flavor.

LIUZZI ANGELONI CHEESE CT – www.liuzzicheese.com
The founders of our company, Pasquale and Nick Liuzzi, came to this country thirty-nine years ago. They had a dream to establish their own enterprise, producing premium quality cheeses and fine foods, reminiscent of those made by the Liuzzi family for five generations.

The Liuzzi Brothers believed in their dream and believed in America. Their “bulldog” determination, industriousness, and persistence have born fruit. We, who labor on their behalf are proud of what has been achieved. We see what we do as being important because it enable us to maintain our Italian cultural heritage. We are proud to educate our customers about our products, and hope that our efforts will continue to add richness and diversity to their lives.

Our goal is simple… to service our loyal customers to the absolute best of our ability and provide superior products at a fair price. We are proud to serve you and hope to serve many generations into the future!

RED’S BEST FISH MA – www.redsbest.com
Red’s Best was born from the mind of Jared Auerbach, a young fisherman from Boston who cut his teeth fishing on commercial vessels in Alaska and Cape Cod, MA. Jared learned from the generations of fishermen there and across America, and he set out to create a brand for each and every fisherman that represents the pride of the profession. Buying Red’s Best brand fish supports fishermen whose livelihood depends on the catch.

SPICE MILL CT – www.espicemill.com
The Spice Mill is a local, family owned business specializing in spices, herbs and gourmet seasonings. Operating in Manchester, CT, we have been servicing Southern New England’s finest restaurants, food manufactures and local markets. We pride ourselves on giving the best service and highest quality spices we can, all at a great price point.

Our Manchester store is open to the public six days a week, so please stop in and see what we have!

Our Philosophy

At Blue Plate Kitchen in West Hartford, we have a simple philosophy when it comes to the food.

SOURCING + PARTNERSHIPS + LOCAL + RESPONSIBLE + SIMPLICITY + SLOW-CRAFTED + WHOLESOME + VALUE + EXECUTION = REALSOULFOOD

SOURCING

You cannot produce great food unless you start with great raw products. We work hard to source the best local, seasonal, sustainable products. This means focusing on farm-to-table produce, dock-to chef seafood, all-natural meats, artisan cheeses, and working with great purveyors.

PARTNERSHIPS

Our purveyors, suppliers, local artisans, farmers and fishermen, aren’t just business relationships but partners with us in our business. We value these relationships and think we are stronger because of their knowledge, experience, commitment and passion. While we are a scratch kitchen, when we find a local partner making a great product and committed to the same standards we are, we happily will use their products to deliver great end-results to our guests. Whether a locally produced farmhouse cheese, a world-class bagel or rye bread, a local coffee roaster, or artisan meat smoker… we are proud to have these people on our team and to serve their products.

LOCAL

All things being equal, local is better. We believe that local is better for a variety of reasons — freshness, traceability, and seasonality. But also we believe that local is better because it is environmentally more sound and sustainable, it strengthens are local economy, and is simply the right thing to do. That said, “local” is relative. There is the local bakery across the street or farm a vew miles from the restaurant. But local includes farmers and purveyors throughout Connecticut, New England, etc. We try and source fish from Boston, Connecticut and New York. Much of our produce comes from New Jersey up to Maine (with large amounts in season being Connecticut-grown). While Connecticut has wonderful cheeses, so does upstate New York, Vermont, etc. Our philosophy is stay local, closer is better, and when you can’t source locally, find a purveyor who shares our values and commitment to their “local”.

RESPONSIBLE

We have a responsibility to our guests, staff and community to serve “ethical food”. This means that sustainability is not simply a buzz word, but a reality we must wrestle with. Environmental impact, carbon footprints, recycling, fair trade, paying our workers fairly, etc… these are critical issues for us as a business and restaurant.

SIMPLICITY

We want to serve simple, contemporary comfort food. Bold flavors, fresh ingredients, simple presentations. Eating out should be fun and satisfying, not pretentious and stuffy.

SLOW-CRAFTED

The emerging “slow food movement” is all about the opposite of fast food — our food is locally sourced, often cooked the old-fashioned way — slowly braised, roasted on our rotisserie, slow-smoked, etc. We are a scratch kitchen —- we cook to order, prepare our foods and sauces in small batches, and generally cook like your grandmother used to. Does that sometimes mean our food takes a little longer? Yes, and we are totally okay with that. And does that sometimes mean that we run out of items? Yes, and we are totally okay with that too.

WHOLESOME

We have no interest in being a “health food” restaurant, but we want our food to wholesome, healthy and respectful of the choices our guests make. While there is no way to make a great pastrami sandwich that isn’t full of fat (that is what makes it taste great!), our pastrami needs to be made from high quality beef. We also want to give as much attention and commitment to quality to our guests who are vegetarians, have certain allergies or other special dietary needs.

VALUE

The good news is that “local, farm-to-table and sustainable” food has now graduated from just being at a few restaurants or a marketing buzz word to a cultural shift in how consumers, chefs and restaurateurs think about food. However, too often, this movement has been seen almost exclusively in either expensive, fine dining restaurants or small niche mom-and-pop places (also often expensive). We want to deliver excellent, wholesome and responsible food that is also affordable and delivers on value.

EXECUTION

Great cooking is really about two factors: start with great product and properly apply the right cooking method. We are obsessed about proper execution of our food and service. We make a priority out of training our staff, providing professional development, and working hard every day to get better at what we do. That is our promise and commitment to our guests and our partners.
