Olive Oil, Coffee Blends and Authentic Balsamic Vinegars
You may have dined at one of chef and restaurateur Zack Bruell’s five Cleveland-area restaurants – Parallax, Table 45, Chinato, L’Albatros and Cowell & Hubbard.
Zack’s Brews are custom-roasted and packaged by Caruso’s Coffee in Brecksville, OH, ensuring that the money stays in Cleveland. “That’s important to me,” Bruell says. “We have great things going on in Cleveland, so why not support our own local companies?”
As for the olive oil, it’s the same used in all of Bruell’s restaurants and is made from arbequina, arbosana and koroneiki olives, which are all grown in California’s Central Valley, picked directly from the tree and milled within hours of harvesting, for optimal flavor and freshness.
Chef Bruell’s authentic balsamic vinegars are available in two unique varieties: Zack Bruell Balsamic Vinegar and Zack Bruell White Balsamic Vinegar. According to Bruell, “The products offer a complexity and intensity of flavor that you don’t get in most balsamic vinegars, with a lower acidity level. There is an essence of sugar, without being cloyingly sweet. It’s almost as if they have already been reduced.”
