Mom’s Day is Coming…Surprise her With a Catered Brunch for 8

posted on April 20th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Get a load of this... Our exclusive catered brunch for Mom is downright amazing, if we do say so ourselves. Our catering chef and teams really pulled out all the stops for this incredible feast that Mom will remember for years to come. Brunch for Eight (or 4, with the best breakfast leftovers ever) comes with a show-stopper deep dish quiche (choose from Lorraine, Florentine, or Broccoli + Cheese) that boasts the most incredible hand-made to order flaky and buttery crust with a perfectly cooked and flavorful egg center. The quiche is paired with a big and beautiful fruit bowl of  strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, pineapple, and melon as well as freshly baked muffins (banana nut and blueberry) and pastries for a sweet tooth touch. Add on a gallon of fresh squeezed OJ and Casa Malia Organic Prosecco for the perfect Mimosas too!

Wine Thursday: Leaping Horse Red Blend 2014

posted on April 19th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

87 points 'Best Buy' - Wine Enthusiast The three grapes in Leaping Horse Red Blend come from vineyards in Lodi: the Zinfandel is full, juicy and flavorful. The Merlot is soft and sweet, with a bit of herbs mixed in while the Petite Sirah gives the wine a beautiful dark red color. This medium bodied gem boasts a sweet berry profile, such as black cherries and strawberries, and an herbal note on the juicy, long finish. Leaping Horse Red Blend is ideal for hearty soups, grilled red meats, pasta dishes in marinara sauces, barbequed chicken or simply on its own. A lovely cheese plate to finish or a rich chocolate dessert is always a great option! The Kautz family has been promoting and working with sustainable viticulture for over 35 years. Crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials and drip irrigation are used throughout the vineyards to improve the quality and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects are also employed. In addition, owl boxes and… Read More

Wine Thursday: Koyle Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon

posted on April 12th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Deeply colored, with plenty of black fruit character, showing a great presence of currant and blueberry, with hints of exotic spice and cedar. This Cabernet is a full expression of origin, showing a real grip of acidity and mineral notes. Ripe tannins are solid and velvety, and come together beautifully, with a silky and balanced finish. The grapes were picked in selected lots, coming from Koyle’s Los Lingues Estate. The vineyards are biodynamically managed, with stringent water management to preserve the expression of the terroir. The grapes are handpicked and brought to the cellar for sorting, selecting only perfect clusters for this wine. In the tank, cold maceration (for aroma and flavor extraction) takes place over 5 days, followed by fermentation over two weeks. Finally, warm maceration to extract just the most rounded and silky tannins takes place. The wine is then aged in French oak barrels for twelve months, with a final blending that allows for the perfect expression of… Read More

The Cookie: Our Chef’s Special Creation

posted on April 9th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

Have you ever indulged in The Cookie? We sure hope so. Some may say it's our name to fame. We can't entirely disagree. The Cookie truly is a chocolate chunk and walnut masterpiece. It comes directly from the hands of our amazingly talented French chef who tested out more recipes than he can even count...until it was finally, just right. To say Chef Christophe put tender, love, and care into the creation of The Cookie would be quite the understatement. And while he can whip up just about any fancy French pastry, The Cookie is one of his favorite recipes. Yes, it is just that good. And if you've had even a single bite of the buttery, soft, and chunky chocolate-y goodness, then you know. An all butter cookie containing more than 60% Belgian chocolate and toasted walnuts, we serve The Cookie warm all day at most of our stores. Enjoy it with some milk or a cup of hot coffee and enjoy every single decadent bite, Don't forget to snap a photo of it and post it to Instagram… Read More
