Fresh, spunky and totally authentic, Mia’s Kitchen specialty food products are a direct reflection of the young woman who is the driving force behind the business – Mia Sebastiani, a proud “Cal-Italian” whose California upbringing and Italian heritage provide the perfect fusion and inspiration for her fine line of gourmet foods.
Born and raised in Sonoma, the heart of Wine Country, Mia learned to cook the old-fashioned way – at the stove with spoon in hand, under the loving direction of her mother and grandmother, using family recipes that had been handed down from generation to generation. Her passion for down home cooking spurred her to share the bounty from her own table and hence, with advice from her mom, Nancy, Mia’s Kitchen was born.
Starting out wasn’t easy. Her first “store” was the back of her pickup truck. But customers quickly became devotees of the exceptional and innovative (but affordable) pasta sauces, olive oils, and other tasty products Mia’s Kitchen had to offer. The pickup truck approach, while gritty and challenging, eventually morphed into national grocery distribution. Today, Mia’s Kitchen products can be found on the shelves of top grocery stores nationwide.
Starting small taught Mia many lessons, perhaps the most important of which is to be authentic. All Mia’s food products are made from the freshest of ingredients and handcrafted to the highest quality standards, using family recipes that have stood the test of time – plus some newer products that reflect the demands of today’s lifestyle. It’s Mia’s way of sharing her love of family and home cooking with other families who enjoy a touch of gourmet cooking everyday – from Mia’s Kitchen to your kitchen table!
