A few days ago I had a very delicious assignment to enjoy a stack of blueberry pancakes with Pastry Chef and Award-Winning jam maker and restaurateur, Sarabeth Levine (namesake of the popular Sarabeth'sbakeries in NYC) to celebrate National Pancake Day with Driscoll's. Featuring the finest berries, I enjoyed a delicious combination of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries before devouring some delicious blueberry pancakes that were created by Executive Chef of Sarabeth's Tribeca, Lee Scheffler.
At the event, I loved having the chance to sit next to Sarabeth and hear more about her love of baking, jams, and cooking techniques. Since 1981, Sarabeth and her husband and business partner, Bill Levine, have been selling her preserves and baked goods that is now sold in all of their NYC locations, and through the world in the Caribbean, Canada, Japan and South Korea. Starting with a humble beginning, Sarabeth's now operates a "jam factory, a wholesale-retail bakery cafÃ© and nine restaurants."
I loved sampling the delicious pancakes - complete with Driscoll's blueberries, a fruit that is high in antioxidants that is said to "improve memory function and reduce the effects of aging," according to Driscoll's. This is a great way to start the morning complete with a side of mixed berries to provide you and your kids with a great dose of fiber, vitamin C, fiber, potassium, folate and more to keep you energized through the day.
After a delicious breakfast, I loved to learn more about Sarabeth's and sample some delicious berries and tasty offerings from the iconic Sarabeth's in Tribeca.
