Dreaming of sugar plums…or a cheese platter?

We now have more than 40 cheeses to choose from for your Christmas entertaining. The cheese platter illustrated served 30 guests and contained 6 different types of cheeses centered around a jar of fig jam. You could also choose from a variety of soft cheeses to use as a focal point. Add slices of dried sausages, salamis, cocktail pickles and other condiments….you will find them at The Pantry!

This is the weather for hearty meals!

IMG_1482 Whether it is Hutspot, a Dutch mashed potato dish made with carrots and onions or boerenkool the most famous “stamppot“, a European smoked sausage is the perfect finishing touch.  Pictured here is a Gelderse Rookworst which translates smoked sausage from the Dutch province of Gelderland – our most popular smoked sausage.  At the end of November we will be bringing in our first order from Wagener Meats.  This will greatly expand our selection of sausages and salamis. It will also open up a whole new supply of bacons and other European meats.
