About this Event

Terrific Tastings: Let’s Go Nuts!

Sunday, December 6th

2-3:30pm (PST), 3-4:30pm (MST), 4-5:30pm (CST), 5-6:30pm (EST)

on Zoom

While working out of their homes and a small, shared production kitchen in Berkeley, CA, the Artisana Organics founders started by selling almonds and almond butter. Their offerings grew to include raw, organic nut butters made of cashews, walnuts, pecans & coconut. They went on to introduce wonderful, unique blends of macadamia nuts & coconut as well as hemp & Brazil nuts (yes, Brazil nuts...the ones often left over in the dish of mixed nuts...but, this butter is terrific!). Connected with farmers throughout California and organic food enthusiasts across the country, the team made products available through local co-ops, farmer's markets, and eventually natural food stores. So, regardless of which holiday(s) you celebrate, make the season even more festive & delicious; come join our culinary host James Sokol to:

  • Meet Santiago Cuenca-Romero, founder & lead product developer;
  • Hear about this interesting San Francisco Bay Area company;
  • Get insights into the development of their products & seasonal flavors;
  • Share a live, tasting experience of different varieties of organic nut butters & spreads;
  • Learn different pairing to complement the butters;
  • Get tips on using these butters in recipes well beyond traditional PB&J and
  • Enjoy the fun chat and Q&A with our special guest.

Artisana products are appropriate for 100% organic, vegan, raw, paleo, gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO & keto culinary practices.

Whether to put a twist on your meals, into your holiday baking/gifting, onto a nosh tray, or simply enjoying them on your favorite bread or toast, leave the world aside and come join this “nutty” experience!

Come for the nuts; stay for the “nuts!”

To allow ample time for packing & shipping, Tasting Collection sales end on Sat, Nov 21 or when our curated collections are sold out ...whichever comes first! Early ordering is recommended.

We hope to see you at the tasting!

Our Special Guest:

“Enthralled by peanut butter when he came to the U.S. from Spain,” Santiago Cuenca-Romero took his background in meat grinding and used it to create this line of specialty nut butters. For more about “Santi,” read California Business Journal's feature about him, click here.

R.A.W and C.L.E.A.N.

Artisana is the first and only nut butter brand to achieve R.A.W and C.L.E.A.N certifications by the Clean Food Certified Project, which validates the work the company has always done to maintain the strict safety and processing standards that allow the making of the cleanest, safest, tastiest raw nut butters on the market.

After noon (PST) on the day prior to the event, an email with an event registration link will be emailed to all ticket buyers via Eventbrite. Tickets buyers must use the link to register (at no additional cost) for the actual Zoom event online and are encouraged to do so immediately upon receipt of the email. It's simple: one click, add your name & email, one more click - done!

Troubleshooting: We will do our best to remedy any issues. Ticket buyers who have completed Zoom event registration, but NOT received the Zoom event link should contact James (see below) before 5:00pm (PST) on the day prior to the event to allow proper time to find a solution.

Late Troubleshooting: We will try our best to - but cannot guarantee - help with Zoom event registration/links to guests contacting James after 5:00pm (PST) on the day prior to the event.
