Pacific Pickle Works of Santa Barbara Wins 2015 Good Food Award

Pacific Pickle Works, a Santa Barbara-based gourmet food company, is the recipient of the 2015 Good Food Award for its Jalabeaños, a unique blend of jalapeño spiced pickled green beans.

The award was presented to Pacific Pickle Works founder Bradley Bennett by world-renowned chef and food activist Alice Waters on Thursday at the Good Food Award ceremony held at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco.

“We are extremely proud to receive this prestigious award,” Bennett said. “To have our product recognized among a field of such high quality food-makers from across the country is a real honor.”

To qualify for a Good Food Award, a product must be responsibly produced from locally sourced ingredients, without the use of pesticides and with respect to seasonality. Over 150 products in 11 categories were selected from nearly 1,500 entries for the award this year.

The winners were selected in a blind taste test by a panel of industry experts.

“We take pride in the fact that we make good food using local and organic produce,” Bennett said. “This award gives us a great seal of approval as we look to introduce our pickles to a larger audience in 2015.”

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
