Who We Are

My mother, Pat, made the greatest peanut brittle and chocolate drizzle growing up. These special treats have a sweet and nutty crunch that my sisters and I have enjoyed for many years.  It is the perfect gift—the sweet, nutty crunch is irresistibly delicious and no one can say "no" to a bite of my mother's peanut brittle or chocolate drizzle.  

Our family recipe has been passed down through three generations and it hasn't lost a bit of the delicious stove top taste.  It’s a classic treat and we want everyone to get the chance to taste it. Hundreds of people made requests for these recipes.  I knew it was time to launch Pat’s Gourmet LLC and share this delicacy that has brought happiness to so many of us over the years. 

A batch of Pat’s Gourmet Peanut Crunch or Chocolate Drizzle makes a tasty and beautiful gift.  We’re thrilled to finally bring you the sweet, nutty crunch right to your doorstep.


About the Owner

Pat's Gourmet Owner NFL Superbowl Champion Mike Lodish

My name is Mike Lodish, and I've lived a life that I can only describe as blessed.  I went to Brother Rice High School and won a state football championship.  I received a football scholarship to play at UCLA and started on the Bruin defensive line for three years, winning Pac-10 and Rose Bowl championships in the process.  
In 1990, I was drafted into the NFL, where I played for 11 years. My first five years were spent with the Buffalo Bills , during which time we went to four Super Bowls, unfortunately losing them all.  My next six seasons were spent with the Denver Broncos, where I was part of two Super Bowl champion teams.
My championship resume includes one high school state championship, one Pac-10 championship, one Rose Bowl championship, six AFC championships, and two Super Bowl championships- something no one else has ever exceeded.  As I look back, I realize none of this would have been possible without the love and support of my parents and sisters.  My father is a man of enormous intelligence with a healing hand, and my mother is a lady who raised my sisters and I with love, discipline and a work ethic second to none.
The peanut brittle and chocolate drizzle recipes stem from my mother's side of our family.  This is why I've decided to name our parent company after her; Pat's Gourmet LLC.  You'll notice I put my own name on my brand, Lodish's Champion Brittle, because I remember how much it meant for me to have my name on the back of my jerseys when I played football from high school up to the toughest league of them all - the NFL.  
I want everyone to know the same pride and passion I played with on the football field goes into making each and every piece of our brittle.
From our family to yours, enjoy!
