posted on September 17th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

When it comes to planning the perfect party appetizer that allows guests to nibble and mingle, there's one spread that generally ranks supreme. Everyone loves it - even if they've never heard the proper name for it. Charcuterie. We know it sounds rather fancy - especially if you're not a regular connoisseur of it. But, it's basically just a selection of cured meats with accompaniments of cheese, olives, crackers or crusty bread, and a sweet little something like preserves, chutney, or jam.

posted on September 6th, 2017 by Leslie Thomas

In case you couldn't tell, we're pretty big purveyors of cheese. From snacking to melting to everything between, cheese is a guilty pleasure indeed. And we always strive to carry all those cheeses you know and love plus some of the exotic gourmet ones too. This month, we're featuring a few of Scotland's finest cheddar cheeses. Amazing on their own, all three of these cheeses are also quite delicious on a baguette with a delightful sweet chutney to contrast the bite of cheddar.
