Greenwich resident Connie Fassuliotis is hoping for ‘sweet’ success with her new business.

Sweet Basil Food, a Vermont-based company, has come to Connecticut.

Owner of Sweet Basil Connie Fassuliotis of Greenwich and Townshend, Vt., was present at its Connecticut debut at Palmer’s Market in Darien.

The company says customers raved after sampling the products and stocked up on the initial offering, completely selling out the products on hand.

Riding on the crest of the quest for healthy living, Sweet Basil, with its inspired Greek meals, has already hit the Vermont, New Hampshire and Massachusetts frozen food markets with a bang and has been sought after by busy individuals looking to maintain a healthy cuisine.

Ms. Fassuliotis has a passion for good food and is driven to bring the tastiest, best quality frozen meals to consumers too busy to cook for themselves.

“Sweet Basil offers consumers an ethnic, high quality, gourmet-style alternative. My recipes are inspired by my Greek grandmothers, and are made with the finest, freshest, natural ingredients. They are chock full of the vegetables and herbs found in the classic Mediterranean diet,” Ms. Fassuliotis said.

Sweet Basil Vegetable Moussaka is made with two layers of eggplant enveloped by a tangy tomato sauce filled with a medley of fresh mushrooms, string beans, carrots and celery and covered in a yogurt enriched, rice-flour based béchamel.

At 200 calories and gluten free, the company believes it is the perfect dish for those watching their calories.

Sweet Basil Vegetable Pastitsio is an update of a classic that includes kale and a pumpkin puree filling layered between elbow pasta. Feta, garlic, thyme, sage and cottage cheese are combined with the pumpkin puree filling for a savory combination, topped with a light yogurt enriched béchamel. At 410 calories and accompanied by a light Greek salad, it makes a perfect evening meal.

Sweet Basil products, hand-made in small batches in Vermont, are a generous 11.5 ounces and can be prepared in the microwave or in a conventional oven.

Based in Townshend, Vt., Sweet Basil Food is a privately held, family run company that produces and sells all-natural, Greek-inspired, oven or microwave ready frozen foods.
