I absolutely loved your interview with Eve Durante! It is amazing to hear how she persevered because she had a passion for clean eating and giving back to women in the community. I am a fan, her sauce is not only organic but the most delicious sauce available on the market today. My chef husband has not made sauce since The Vine entered our lives! Eve inspires many women who have a dream to follow it.....her story is a great example of what can happen when you do!
