We’re pleased to announce that through our partnership with Chef Zack Bruell, a new line of chef created culinary sauces is now available at Heinen’s. These new and extremely versatile culinary sauces were created and perfected in the kitchens of Chef Bruell’s award winning restaurants are now, for the first time, available to home-cooks and fans everywhere exclusively at Heinen’s.
Those in the Cleveland area have likely, at one time or another, visited one of Chef Zack Bruell’s 10 restaurants and eateries (they’re hard to miss) but those within our Chicagoland contingency may not have had the opportunity to experience Mr. Bruell’s culinary genius in person. Now, whether you’re near or far, you can now enjoy the flavors and aromas of Chef Bruell’s restaurants right at home in our own kitchen. Use them in your favorite recipes or put on your chef’s cap and create something new and delicious.
Chef Bruell strives to deliver the best possible quality and service to guests who visit his establishments and carries that commitment through to these three new premium culinary sauces. Each new sauce is uniquely inspired and used in popular dishes found in Chef Bruell’s restaurants: Thai Curry Sauce (Alley Cat Oyster Bar), Pepper Sauce (Parallax Restaurant and Lounge) and Marinara Sauce (Ristorante Chinato).
