We were pretty excited to discover Swiss Rostis at the Fancy Food Show in January. Our first shipment has nearly sold out, but we're expecting more very soon.
Swiss Rosti--Crispy Filled Potato Deliciousness
Earlier this year I told you about our annual trip to the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco, and among the discoveries we made were brand new products called Swiss Rösti. Inspired by a Swiss specialty and made in Portland, they reminded us of a big tater tot with assorted stuffings.
Each 10.58 oz. box has 4 Swiss-inspired Röstis, each comes frozen and only needs heating in a 400° oven for 25 minutes. Röstis make a wonderful side dish, or a decadent snack. I served them just this week with a couple grilled lamb chops and a salad for an easy dinner. Man, are they addictive! Each box sells for $8.99. Our introductory order has nearly sold out, but we are expecting more very soon. Here are the flavors: Melty Swiss Raclette, Zesty Chili Cheese and Stuffed Baked Potato.
Fiddyment Farms Pistachios &
Pistachio Butter, Roseville, California
California farmers began planting pistachio trees in the 1960's. Today, over 100,000 acres of California farmland is dedicated to pistachios. As a result of progressive farming techniques, California pistachio nuts are considered some of the world's finest.
Fiddyment Farms has been in the business of growing pistachios since 1968. David Fiddyment designed an innovative hulling machine that hulls and dries his crops within minutes after harvest. This is important because pistachios spoil rapidly if not dried soon after picking. You will notice the difference right away. Fiddyment Farms pistachios are fresher, are of the highest quality, and simply taste better.
For over 30 years, Fiddyment Farms has been in operation in Roseville CA, just 20 minutes northeast of Sacramento. Fiddyment Farms has recently expanded operations by acquiring planted acreage in the vibrant Kern County agricultural region. The ranch is located east of Delano adjacent to Highway 65 and consists of 680 acres of beautiful rolling hills with pistachios and table grapes nearby.
Fiddyment Farms Creamy Premium Pistachio Butter
10.5 oz.jar $15.99
We noticed the intriguing flavor of Fiddyment Farms Premium Pistachio butter at last year's Fancy Food Show, but this year we actually pulled the plug and ordered it into The Wine Country. Spreadable, like peanut butter, pistachio butter can be used as a filling for crepes, on a crostini with a drizzle of honey, melted to cover fresh strawberries--perfect with a little dusting of pistachio crumbs. One suggestion we saw was making a parfait with alternate layers of Greek Yogurt, melted pistachio butter and honey. Wherever your inner-chef's imagination takes you, you'll find Fiddyment Farms Pistachio Butter intriguing.
Fiddyment Farms Lightly Salted Pistachios In Shell
2 oz. $4.99 8 oz. $6.99
Fiddyment Farms Lightly Salted Pistachio Kernals
8 oz. $11.99
Fiddyment Farms also produces pistachios, obviously, both in-shell and in kernals. We decided to start with the lightly salted versions, although they come in a range of flavors. Perhaps later we'll add the Sea Salt and Black Pepper or the smoky Barbecue pistachios. Let us know and we'll get them for you.
