The June Cherry Box

Introducing our June Pantry Box — a taste of the Gjelina Group restaurants interpreted through a single ingredient. This month our chefs at Gjelina, Valle, Gjusta, and GTA created a lineup all spotlighting the organic cherries from Murray Family Farms in Bakersfield, CA.

The pantry boxes are available in limited edition and ready to ship nationwide.

Chef Juan’s Cherry Compote
Chef Juan Hernandez’s special compote, made to pair with everything from savory (summer barbecue to roasted pork tenderloin) to sweet (spoon onto vanilla ice cream or enjoy with yogurt and granola). 

Gjusta Cherry Jam:
Our classic jam — pairs perfectly with a loaf of Gjusta sourdough — packaged with a small wooden jam spatula from Gjusta Goods.
Valle’s Cherry Chipotle Vinaigrette:
A spicy-sweet dressing for drizzling on salads or a grain bowl, made with chipotle and charred serrano chiles.

Gjelina’s Cocktail Cherries:
Liquor-soaked cherries for a twist on a classic maraschino cocktail cherry. 

About Murray Family Farms:

In the early 80’s, Steven Murray Sr. & Vickie Murray traded their home for a 20-acre plot of land in Bakersfield and decided to split it between grapes and something new for the area — cherries.

Their gamble worked wonderfully: Not only were they some of the earliest cherries in the Northern Hemisphere, they tasted great. Since then, Murrays have been selling fruit directly from their farm and farmer’s markets with their kids.The farm has grown in both size and crop diversity, but their cherries remain a beloved anchor of the farm.
