Ed here with more news from the Mediterranean. Wow! What a Summer its been so far... hot, humid days spent at the beach, cooler rainy days (except last week when we lost power in the storm) prepping foods for many of you to enjoy, and a recent (rare) week off when I got to go to San Francisco to visit with family. Yes, I did take a whole week off, but it was not all pleasure... for two and a half hard working days, I had to travel from San Francisco to Napa and Sonoma to visit some of our supplier wineries, and sample, sample, taste, and sample new wines for our store's collection. It may be hard work, but somebody's got to do it!
Speaking of Wines
We have a special treat in store this Saturday. Niall McCallum, regional manager for Neil Empson Wine Imports will be with us from Noon to 3PM, presenting some of his favorites, including Pieropan Soave, Cantina Santadi (Sardinian Vermentino), Villa Matilda Falanghina, Matane Primitivo (from Puglia), Poggio Argentiera Morellino di Scansano, Marcarini Barbera d'Alba, and New Zealands' Over the Edge Pinot Noir. We know you're going to love talking to Niall and sampling his wines, all of which will be discounted during the tasting. Appetizers prepared by Nick, Greg, and Ed will complete the afternoon.
What's New at The Marketplace?
In his never ending search for out of the ordinary, enjoyable cheeses, Shaun has brought in three new palate pleasers. Queso Iberico, a Spanish mix of cow's, sheep's, and goat's milk that makes a great cheese for table, grating, or grilling. Mahon Curado, a dry aged cheese from Minorca, that will blow you away. And Weybridge Cellars Organic Artisan Cheese, a fluffy, mushroomy smooth mini-loaf.
What's new (in the meat case)? I must admit I've been holding out on you... For quite some time I have been making a special treat for staff and some lucky visitors: Pork Kabobs made with Lime and Garlic. Well, the kids here have finally persuaded me to share the secret. This Friday and Saturday, we will have a limited number of these Savory Pork Kabobs available. Call ahead and reserve yours now!
