"Hey Mom! Look At Me!"


"As a health food store with a fairly large deli, we wanted people to be able to experience many different types of foods and still keep it healthy," Kralyevich said. "Thanks to our chef, Erik, he is the creative genius when it comes to inventing many varieties of foods. And it sure seems like the customers really enjoy it because they keep coming back, so he must be doing something right."
Erik Laracuente, the chef, also has had a hand in the health food business for many years. For seven years he was the chef at Café Metro in Denville. Prior to that he worked as a chef in two different health food places in Ridgewood and had his own business cooking health foods for families.
"All I have ever cooked is health foods since I was 18 years old," Laracuente said. "I love it here, and I have the freedom to be very creative and to create an endless variety of dishes." Click here to read the whole article.
