Our Story

Fabalish First Farmers Market

 

Once upon a time there was a young, humble chef named Jess, who found herself in a new city on a quest for purpose. At a job interview, Jess was tasked with preparing several vegan dishes. Could she deliver on the challenge, Jess wondered? She was nervous! Nevertheless, she knew she had to give it her best. Afterall, Jess had just completed her culinary degree at the Natural Gourmet Institute of NYC, with a focus on vegan and plant-forward cooking. This was her time to shine. The main dish needed a sauce to complement it, one that would best serve the meal if it were rich and creamy. Our heroine, in a moment of vivid clarity, recalled her training for a little-known ingredient by the name of Aquafaba. Aqua-what, you ask? Chickpea water! Chickpea water? So many questions. What Jess knew, was that the water from a strained can of chickpeas (organic and BPA-free of course) possessed similar powers to that of an egg. This was it. “Liquid gold” she exclaimed! Jess whipped up the aquafaba, emulsified it with organic sunflower oil, and then formulated a delicious blend of spices to provide unbridled flavor. Upon the tasting of the meal, Chef Jess heard the fateful words “this is the best thing I ever put in my mouth”. Thus began her love affair with the chickpea and its watery by-product, aquafaba. The rest, is history!
