Good Food Award winner Bohemian Blend.
On March 4, celebrated chef Alice Waters will present this year’s Good Food Awards at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. And when she does, she will hand over the trophy for “Best Pantry - Midwest” to Michael Januska of Old Brooklyn Mustards for his company’s Bohemian Blend.

Bohemian Blend is a “Cleveland-style mustard” with sauerkraut. Januska’s version of a stadium mustard begins with course-ground mustard and fermented mustard seeds, which is then infused with Cleveland Kraut’s Original Caraway.

"With Cleveland known as a mustard town, it’s amazing to earn national attention for Old Brooklyn Mustards," Januska says. "We now are receiving online orders from all over the country. We are very proud."

Januska describes the mustard as having "the right amount of zippy funk" combined with the "magic flavor pop of Cleveland Caviar."

Each year, the Good Food Foundation organizes the three-day Good Food Awards Weekend for the public and the trade to meet, interact, taste and buy exceptional food products from the nearly 200 winners.
