Brand Info

Nutkrack strives to keep things simple, focusing on the creation and delivery of perfectly caramelized pecans. This is rooted in great ingredients and processes.

Nutkrack actually began as a mistake. Founder, Chef Eric Rupert, was hard at work in the kitchen, the stovetop crowded with pots and pans, when he accidentally dropped some pecan halves into the wrong pot. He set the pecans aside to cool, intending to throw them away.

When he saw them again later, he stopped and looked more closely. They had a perfect, shiny glaze as though they had been intentionally and carefully prepared. He tasted one, and was surprised at how crunchy and delicious it was. Over he next hour, he ate them all.

The next day, he set out to repeat his mistake, on purpose this time. He added a little salt to compliment the mild sweetness and perfect toasty notes of the prior day's pecans. Rather than eating them all himself, he shared the second batch with family and friends. They were a unanimous hit, and a tradition was born: Eric would prepare these accidental treats as holiday gifts, and has continued to do so for years.
