EatBeat: Eat Slow and Organic at Green Gourmet in Delray Beach

February 27th, 2010 · No Comments

The Slow Foods Glades to Coast chapter meets tonight for a sample-taste menu from Chef Joey Giannuzzi of the Green Gourmet.

It’s an inexpensive way to sample a lot of the chef’s foods, drink some organic wines and meet interesting people who are passionate about moving away from “corporate food” and keeping meals real and foods sustainable, and the earth green. All worthy goals – do your share as a food lover.

Chef Giannuzzi, formerly with Henry’s,  is someone to watch — he’s as passionate about flavors as the mission statements, so don’t expect bland foods – his dishes are gourmet, but comprised of nearly all organic and sustainable products. The take-out part of his shop serves on corn-based biodegradeable containers. He practices what he’s selling in other words.

Delray Beach, FL — Local foodies are buzzing about the opening of Chef/Owner Joey Giannuzzi’s The Green Gourmet — an upscale fast-casual eatery that serves up organic gourmet comfort food — which debuted on November 2, 2009, at Addison Place in Delray Beach, Florida. Giannuzzi developed a loyal following at his former post — as the Executive Chef at Henry’s in Delray Beach — where plenty of devoted fans used to line-up to dine at the restaurant during his eight-year tenure from 2000 – 2008.

The Green Gourmet is a novel concept — this innovative eatery serves up extraordinarily delicious dishes, which are comprised almost exclusively of high-quality organic ingredients, which are healthy for diners.

Giannuzzi notes, “By opening The Green Gourmet, I am able to realize my dream of bringing delicious, organic gourmet food, to my guests. I am thrilled to be pursuing my passion by combining flavorful, healthy options that are affordable and accessible.”

Chef Joey is passionately devoted to creating dishes that are comprised of ingredients that are 98 percent organic, all natural, or biodynamic. It is also important, to note, that all protein, fruit, and vegetables here are organic. Additionally, The Green Gourmet features a “scratch” kitchen — all sauces, dressings, soups, soup stocks, etc. are house-made by Chef Joey and Chef Fernando Lemus. Furthermore, this talented duo is making their own mozzarella and ricotta cheese. It is important to note that there is no fryer at The Green Gourmet.
