Dunwoody's own, Emily G's Jam of Love wins Top Prize as the Flavor of Georgia!

Emily and Gina

I was thrilled to hear that Dunwoody's, Emily G's Jam of Love won the Flavor of Georgia contest today! Their Pear Honey Jam won Best Jam and was also named the overall Grand Prize Winner

I personally enjoy the exquisite tastes these ladies concoct and highly recommend you pick up a jar or two from these respected chefs when the Dunwoody Green Market starts in April.  Jams are also available at Artichoke Designs - 2482 Jett Ferry Road,  and D'Vine Wine Bar and Shop - 5486 Chamblee Dunwoody Road, as well as online.

Here is a video of Emily & Gina receiving the award from Georgia Department of Agriculture Commissioner Gary Black.

Congratulations Ladies and watch out Smuckers !!

Thank you for the post! Gina and I had a great time and we are thrilled and flattered to have won. Hopefully we have some pear honey left by the time market starts!

Dunwoody resident cooks up gourmet jams

Dunwoody resident Emily Myers said she does not plan on being the next Smucker’s, but the sweet and savory jams her company Emily G’s produces has already landed her recognition on the national scale, in publications, on television and at food shows, since launching in 2008.

Though her jams can be found at about 170 locations throughout the country and even internationally, Myers said her focus is not on mass production but on creating a superior product with high-quality ingredients.

“My name’s on the jar, so whatever’s in that jar has to be the best it can be and there’s no compromise on that,” she explained. “If one day, we are the gold standard to which gourmet food is held up to, then I’d feel like I’ve won.”
