It's been a while since we featured a few of the new items kicking around the shop:
Poschiavo Pasta: Straight out of the mountains of Switzerland, in a region just north of Lombardy, Italy, this is some serious spaghetti. Made in a mill started by Augustinian nuns, 5 generations of the Fisler family have been working at this mill. Semolina durum wheat is coarsely ground and mixed with water from a nearby mountain spring. The pasta is then slow dried in the mill's attic before being hand-packed into beautiful wrapping.
Ames Farm Blooming Prairie Honey: A brand new offering from our friends in Watertown, MN. The bees have been hard at work and wait until you taste what is inside the jar. Creamy, floral honey that is made for spreading on sandwiches or smearing on a chunk of cheese. Try a little bit of this spread on a grilled cheese sandwich and you'll think you discovered the holy grail of deliciousness.
Rogue Chocolatier Piura: Extremely limited edition chocolate from local chocolate maker Colin Gasko. The amount of deliciousness contained in this bar is epic. The idea that only 4,000 bars of this chocolate will be made is utterly depressing. Beautiful letter press packaging contains a deeply satisfying chocolate eating experience. Worth every penny.
Tyrrell's Potato Chips: In England they call them crisps, but somehow through the magic of globalization they come to us as chips. Whatever they're called, these are some seriously yummy chips. Fun flavors like Sweet Chili, Cheddar & Chive, and Cider Vinegar. They even put the variety of potato used on the packaging.
