Thank You SO Very Much! January 22 2016, 0 CommentsI want to thank Lynn Altevogt and Chad Ryan for the wonderful article and photos that appeared in
Thursday’s Journal Gazette. When an article is being written about you one can get a little apprehensive
as you don’t get the opportunity to see the draft, add to, subtract from or comment on. The first you see
it is when it hits the newsstand.
I want everyone to know that these two and the staff at the Journal did a great job and I am very happy
with the results. They were perfect in presenting, not only our imperative that the products be of the
highest quality but emphasized our mission of pledging 100% of our profits to charities serving families
and children everywhere.
Great Job Lynn, Chad and the Journal Gazette.
Great Taste for a Greater Good.

Pork Chops with Apple Mustard Sauce January 06 2016, 0 Comments
We love to hear from all of you whenever you make something amazing with one of our sauces, rubs or mustard's. Recently, super fan, and amazing cook, Shelley Porter shared a quick recipe with us using a mustard we are testing out. Looks like we need to add Apple Mustard to our lineup!
We love to get your feedback and seeing how YOU enjoy Best Boy & Co! Please be sure to keep sharing with us on our Facebook page as well as on Twitter and Instagram at @BestBoyandCo.
Shelley sauteed finely diced red onion in a bit of butter, added diced (peeled) apples, removed then added pork chops which she cooked on both sides, then added back in the onion apple mixture. She then whisked in a bit of chicken stock, apple mustard and seasoned to taste. She allowed it to simmer a bit and thickened. She removed form heat and stirred in a bit of sour cream to make it a bit more creamy- and that's it! A quick weeknight meal fit for a king- and using Best Boy & Co mustard. Thank you for sharing Shelley!
Holiday Ham with Apricot Glaze December 26 2015, 0 Comments
This is a time of year that we may be looking for new or interesting ways to make a classic holiday standby like turkey, roast beef or ham. Luckily for you, we have a great recipe for ham and it is a simple one.
Holiday ham with apricot glaze is savory yet just a little bit sweet. The ingredients you need may already be on hand and one of them is our deli-style mustard. If you want to take it a step further use our bourbon barrel aged deli-mustard. This stuff is amazing. There is a reason it wins awards and is a constant favorite with our customers!
Whisk all of the ingredients together and pour over the ham. Be sure to baste as it cooks, about every 15 minutes. This is also very good in the slow cooker!

Summer 2015 Update! September 05 2015, 0 Comments
Zucchini and Goat Cheese Galettes August 05 2015, 0 Comments
For the filling:
- 2 medium zucchini - 1 yellow, 1 green (sliced 1/4 inch thickness)
- 1/2 cup goat cheese
- 3/4 cup grated Pecorino Romano cheese
- drizzle of garlic infused olive oil
- liberal dusting of Best Boy Tuscan Blend and pepper, to taste
- few sprigs of fresh thyme, to top
For the pie dough:
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup of butter, cubed
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup ice cold water
- 1 egg yolk (for egg wash)
1. Slice zucchini with a mandolin and place flat on a tray with a clean cloth or paper towel. Sprinkle with
salt to help draw out the moisture. Allow at least 20-30 minutes for this process ahead of time, so you
won't end up with wet, soggy pastry.
2. Make the dough. Using a fork or a pastry cutter, break up butter in a large mixing bowl, leaving some
big chunks and mix with flour and salt. Add ice-cold water to flour mixture and mix until it just comes
together. You don't want to over work your dough or it will become a very dense, not having the flaky
delicate quality's you want.
3. Once your dough ball comes together, split into two and wrap in cellophane. Refrigerate for about 30
minutes. Ideally, to cool the dough faster, you should flatten and shape into a circle, then chill.
4. Flour your work surface and place unwrapped dough on table and using a rolling-pin, roll-out the
dough to a thickness of about 1/8 inch. It doesn't have to be perfect, just be careful you don't roll it too
thin, otherwise you'll risk getting a hole in the process, forcing you to start over again, and overwork the
5. Building the galettes are a simple process. Once your pie dough is rolled out to the desired thickness,
add your goat cheese in small rough chunks. More is better in our books, but remember to leave
yourself about 1 - 1.5 inches from the edge for folding.
6. Sprinkle 1/2 of the grated Parmesan over the goat cheese, and start arranging your zucchini slices in a
neat circular pattern. Drizzle a small amount of the garlic olive oil over the top, add a liberal amount of
Tuscan Blend and a dash of pepper to taste. Now you can start folding the edges to where your
ingredients start, folding all the edges in. Repeat the process for the second galette. Place them in the
fridge for about 10 minutes while your oven heats up.
7. Preheat oven to 400 F.
8. With a pastry brush, gently brush sides of the galettes with egg yolk to give the dough a beautiful
golden color while baking.
9. Bake in the oven for about 30-35 minutes (this will depend on your oven and its temperature) and
remember to rotate your tray at the halfway mark.
10. Let the galettes cool on a rack for about 5-10 minutes before serving.
