My Favorite Things December 02 2016

I survived Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday and made it to December.  I hope you did too! This is the month when gift giving really happens.  I’m often asked what my favorite product is in the marketplace. That is actually a really difficult question, because I get to select every product that we sell. That means I love all of them! For your benefit, I’ve done some thinking and narrowed my list of favorites down to 3 products. Here they are in no particular order:

La Boîte Cancale N.11 – With Fleur de Sel, Orange and Fennel this is one of my go-to seasonings.  It is great on fish, vegetables, chicken, and broccoli. I am sure it would be super delicious on popcorn but haven’t tried that yet.  All the spices Lior creates are fantastic but if I had to choose one favorite this would be it!

Rick’s Picks Phat Beets – With a name like Julie’s Beet, I definitely love beets.  These aromatic pickled beets are made in New York and hold a special place in my heart.  They are perfect straight from the jar and even better when turned into a delicious appetizer with goat cheese and baguette. Find the recipe here.

Paper & Tea Tip of the Morning Tea – After living in London for two years, I became a tea drinker. I have been searching for a while to find the perfect tea for the marketplace and was lucky to encounter Paper & Tea at the Fancy Food Show. Based in Berlin, Germany, P & T combines old world tradition with new world design. That makes a really great cup of tea!

Be sure to let your family and friends know what your favorite products are from our marketplace. You may just find them wrapped with a bow this holiday season.

Happy Friday,
