I’ve participated in several events since launching my personal chef business and sometimes I don’t realize how many people I’ve met and gotten to know. That is, until I’m out in the world and bumping into all kinds of people who may not even know my name, but they know what I do or maybe the name of my company.
One of those people is a fellow personal chef, Debra Walter. I think I first met her at VegFest in 2011 and have run into her several times since. On a recent Saturday, my squeeze and I waltzed into Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, which is essentially a permanent craft fair right here in our town. Right by the door was none other than Debra, selling her “Max’s Granola.” We chatted for a bit and I bought a bag of granola, which is made right here in southeast Michigan in small batches.
Five minutes later when she saw me devouring it as I walked around the market, she informed me her friends call it “granola crack.” That it is. The granola is named in honor of her son Max, who was born with a brain disorder. She said a portion of the proceeds go toward research or a charity related to the disorder.
I wish I could possible convey in words how delicious this granola is! Literally the best I have ever tasted. As a person who doesn’t keep too many sweets around the house, it has proven to be my go-to at night when I just want a little something. The best part is — it’s packed with good nutritious things, including organic oats, dried fruit, nuts, pepitas and other delicious. If you see it, you should pick some up. you won’t be sorry.
