Culinary Curators: Hudson Daniel Group
When Dan Cassara and Andy Neiman set out to start an online marketplace, they didn’t just want to sell artisanal foods and handmade products—they wanted to tell the stories behind them, too.
“We believe people should know exactly where their food comes from,” says Cassara, “and we want to connect them to the special makers who create it.”
In November 2017, the duo launched Hudson Daniel Gourmet, an online marketplace where foodies can discover artisans; browse through dozens of recipes; and shop for specialty foods, beverages, and accessories. The marketplace features items produced by exceptional makers from across the country—including hard-to-find East Bay–crafted products, such as the savory jams created by Concord’s Hot Pepper Market, all-natural marshmallows baked by Oakland’s The Candy, and loose-leaf teas from Livermore’s Luna Tea Co.
