What's cooking..?

Just a reminder - if you need tenderloin, ribeye or any cut of beef for your Christmas dinner - we custom order from Dom's Sausage! You still have time....

We also have coming in over the next few days: Hand dipped Ricotta (if you've never used it before, check out this helpful link! ), Marscapone cheese, Bufala Mozzarella, Squid Ink pasta, Wild Boar, Foie Gras, Duck Breast, Meringue covered mixed nuts, Peppermint Funky Chunky, Buffalo Rib Eye, lots of appetizers and so much more.

If you we don't have a premade appetizers that suits your fancy, you can always buy our Smoked Salmon, Creme Fraiche and capers...perfect for a pre-dinner snack. Or bruschetta toasts, fresh roasted tomatoes and some truffle oil drizzled on top.

Of course, we always have the perfect wine for your glass.
(Speaking of glasses, don't forget our handpainted wine glasses make excellent gifts!)

Have you made your list - and checked it twice?

If you're as busy as many are these days - you may still not be done with your Christmas shopping. We can help make it easier on you!

We have everything from painted glasses, Vinturi aerators, artisan foods & fun baking gifts such as Molten Lava cake sets and Creme Brulee kits (with the torch!) - as well as gift certificates, and of course beer and wine. Best of all - we gift wrap as well. It's that simple.

Let us help take the stress out of your gift giving this season. And be sure to try some before you buy with our last tasting of the season on Saturday.

Need food for your dinner table? Then join us Thursday for a tasting with The Bread & Butter Co., and place your order for dinner rolls, biscuits, sweet breads and butters. We also have appetizers, fresh cheese, olives, souffles and so much more to help make your Christmas meal special.
