Coming from a background of being a professional chef, but also being a mom and household entertainer, Kristie is ready to share her knowledge of cooking and all things good nutrition and food with you.  She wants to help you bring the ease and enjoyment of cooking, back to your home table.  Making your family a healthy, nutritious meal, that they will all enjoy, should not be a chore.  So, join Kristie and learn how to hopefully skip the drive-thru and bring the family back to the table!

Going big

 

A Tualatin Middle Eastern food specialist said a new facility and a name change has been just the ticket for growth.

 

Trazza Fine Lebanese Food, formerly Great Cedar, entered a 7,300-space in March at Franklin Business Park. As such, the 18-employee company has begun producing a larger (10 ounces) hummus offering along with its array of falafel, mjadra, baba ghanouj, tabbouleh, baklava and other tasty Lebanese food items.

 

Claude Karam, the company's CEO and president, changed the name "to reflect our authentic and unique products."

BY KIM BEELER, BEELER MARKETING

 

Claude Karam, owner of Trazza™ Fine Lebanese Food, held a Grand Opening at his new Tualatin production facility on Wednesday, March 15. He treated more than 50 attendees to a tour of the 7,500-square-foot facility.

Found Trazza hummus at my local Fred Meyer this morning. Don't think I've seen it before. Grocery store hummus is okay and they're all pretty much the same. I opted to try this for the same price as FM brand. Holy cats, this is fantastic hummus! I can actually taste the garlic and the lemon juice! It's Trazza for me from now on.

 

Dear Claude

 

Thank you for bringing hummus samples to Natural Grocer (Salem) a couple of days ago! This is the best hummus I have ever had! I bought the "Cilantro & Jalapeno" Hummus-the flavor is exceptional.  Be assured that I will purchase more varieties of your hummus in due time.

 

Best Regards,

Dear Claude,

 

I just wanted to write you a quick note to tell you how much I am in love with your humus. It's a strange city we live in, here in Portland, where we have so many local options, never mind national, for our food products. I have tried so many of those brands, and I have fallen completely in love with Trazza. I'm so thankful to find such a delicious local humus without added preservatives and oils. I read your About Me page, and didn't realize that in Lebanon, flavored humus is an unspeakable betrayal to the food (I kid...slightly), though I shouldn't be surprised that flavored humus is the "Americanized" version. But I must be honest - I am in love with the cilantro jalapeno flavor! The original is beautiful and fresh tasting as well.

 

Hope business is going well!

 

Best,

Jillian
