Summertime is here and now's the time for lots of fun picnics, barbecues, and pool parties with friends. When it comes to the typical mainstays for munchies, we tend to lean toward the go-to chip and dip, fruit, and veggie platters. Change up the same old boring routine and try our new fresh and tasty cheese spreads! Three delicious varieties can be found in our Cheese Department.
Our cheese spreads are made fresh with a base of cream cheese mixed with some of our favorite ingredients for unique flavor combinations. Each one is like a party for the taste buds:
Pimento Cheddar - Rich cheddar is paired with the slightly sweet and subtle spice of pimento peppers.
Gouda & Pecan - Smoky Gouda cheese, mild shallots, and roasted pecans marry up for this unique spread.
BLT - Bacon makes anything better, right? The classic flavor of a BLT is captured in this savory spread with a unique twist of fresh dill and scallion.

Making its way into our soup lineup for May is the cool, zesty, and always delicious Spanish original, Gazpacho. Since its inception, there have been many versions made of this chilled blended soup made of raw vegetables, but most consist of a base of tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper, onion, and a myriad of spices. Reminiscent of enjoying a heaping bowl of salsa (hello salsa lovers!), Gazpacho is a summertime favorite and equally as enjoyable chilled or warmed.
Gazpacho has ancient roots. This popular cold soup, sometimes referred to as a liquid salad, originates from the Andalusia area of Spain. It is most often served cold (but heated in certain regions of Spain) and has many different influences from Greece and Rome, but also from the Moor and Arab cultures. The original soup was a mixture of blended stale bread, olive oil, and garlic mixed with liquid, like water or vinegar, and was pounded together in a mortar. A variety of available vegetables and almonds were also… Read More

Cooking with cast iron is a pleasure that grows as you use it. The piece you cook with gets subtly worn in as you use it, creating a better cooking experience with each use.
We chose Lodge Enamel as our preferred cast iron supplier because we value the history, commitment, and quality of the company. Lodge began in 1896 when Joseph Lodge opened his first foundry in the Appalachian Mountains. Today, the company still runs as a family business with the CEO and the President of the company being Joseph Lodge's great grandsons.
Lodge's history of excellence continues as they married the beauty of porcelain with the benefits of cast iron. I cook with my enameled cast iron pot all of the time. Some of my favorite dishes include simmered chilies, sauces, black eyed peas, and stews just to name a few. The Dutch oven is so pretty that we serve our meals right out of it! Best of all, it is so easy to clean.
With the cold winter months, now is the best time to purchase Lodge Enamel cast iron… Read More
Since it's inception, Chili has evolved into many different recipes, and every passionate chili-lover on the planet can make an argument about the best chili recipe. We've seen everything from chili con carne (chili with meat), to a meatless version, a beanless version, and even pure vegetable chili. Whatever the concoction may be, all chilis can be described as a spicy hearty stew and is one of America's best-loved comfort foods for winter.
Bristol Farms is home to a variety of delicious, fresh, hand-cooked chilis. Just like our soups, we cook off small batches of chili daily. You can find our fresh chili in the refrigerated soup section of our Deli department in 15 oz. and 30 oz. containers, as well as one variety of chili served hot from our soup bar. Each month our soup menu changes to reflect seasonal offerings, and you can find the following varieties for the month of January: Snake Bite Chili and Route 66 Chili.
We also have a great offer for a FREE 30 oz. container of chili… Read More

While the image of caviar and champagne conjures visions of black ties, white linens, and the finest crystal, it needn’t be so. Admittedly, it is a bit decadent, and luxurious, but not necessarily price prohibitive. Caviar, whether it be the highly prized Golden Osetra, or the California White Sturgeon “Royal Reserve”, is something that everybody should incorporate in at least one culinary experience. Yes it is salty as it is fish roe that is salted for preservation, but it is widely touted as a healthy indulgence that does more than just your taste-buds good. It is packed with Vitamins A, B6 and B12, E as well as Iron, Magnesium, Selenium, and a few other essentials. So good for you that it is often incorporated in skin treatments at many of the finest spas. I’m not sure I would rather wear it than eat it, but there is science that promotes a myriad of benefits.
Back to basics - Caviar, when fresh and high quality, is a wonderful compliment to a variety of dishes such as… Read More
