Look no further: what could be a more necessary ingredient? SALT! It makes a great hostess gift, stocking stuffer, or gift basket theme. We just got a fabulous batch of exotic salts in, as well as fresh jars of spices and can’t wait to share them with you:

Marlborough Flaky Salt (New Zealand), Fleur de Sel Guérande (France),  Red Alder Smoked Salt (Washington), Fleur de Hell™ (DID YOU SAY MARGARITAS?), Bitterman’s Sel Gris (Guatemala) (ERIC’S GO-TO SALT), Lemon Flake Salt (Cypress), Halen Môn Gold Smoked Salt, (Wales) (THIS STUFF IS SPECIAL!)

Fruity, chewy, boozy, floral, delicate, delicious and wrapped up in a bundle as cute as can be: That’s Panettone, delicious any time of year but oh so appropro during the holidays. Come and get yours- we’ve got quite a variety to fit your taste and budget.

We are always excited for a taste of something special. How about a whole bunch of it at once?

Friday Dec. 19th features tastings with the charismatic Sean with his fine Southern manners tasting wonderful French wines and a pink Alsacian bubbly, Huber & Bleger. Yes it is perfect for this celebratory season.

We also have Gina whipping up yummy little appetizer bites with Nduja, a super yummy spreadable salami from Calabria, and that means plenty of personality with plenty of no-nonsense, in-your-face Calabrian red chili added. Viva Calabria!

We are also offering some olive oil & cheese samples. What’s not to love? Come at lunch time and indulge.

Top of the morning!

Did you know we now serve steamy cups of strong, freshly brewed fair trade organic McLaughlin coffee? And freshly baked bagels, muffins and pastries from Authentic Bagels, just down the street?
