Dedicated to creating high quality specialty food products that combine fine taste with an elegant presentation.
The small company was founded in 1982 by Roger and Rita Nelson as an outlet for their artistic endeavors. As Nelson Artworks, the home based company produced decorative products and exhibited merchandise at local street festivals. In an ever growing and competitive market; they were always after new ideas. Possessing an interest in cooking, one concept was to create flavored vinegar so beautiful it would fill a niche for good food while also being an elegant decorator item. The idea was a good one. Living in the fertile Sacramento Valley, a hub of California agriculture, they had at their disposal a myriad of fresh ingredients. Through the clarity of fine bottling the vinegar glowed with the goodness contained within Ė The Gourmetís Secret label was established.
The presentation of The Gourmetís Secret products is so attractive they are in demand not only for their flavor, but also as decorator pieces. Their popularity has grown, leading to placement in stores nationwide. The Gourmetís Secret has won a multitude of awards Ė for visual presentation, flavor, and packaging.
This success allowed The Gourmetís Secret to experiment with new ideas. Based on an extensive family heritage of cooking enthusiasts they have created the innovative Java Jelly and Chefís Brew. These gourmet lines promise to be ever more popular as time goes on.
