Gourmet & Gift Shop News for July

A new line of premium wine accessories from France's Peugeot Culinary and sweet treats ranging from tiramisu to gourmet peanut butter balls to wine sticks for wine pairing.

Peugeot Wine Accessories Offer High-End Quality

from the Auto Maker's Culinary Line

 I think it was two or three years ago, our good friends John and Lyn Pohlmann have Randy and me a gift of a high-end "Ah-so" style cork puller from the French automobile company Peugeot.  Randy was so impressed by the presentation and the (pardon the expression) manly heft of the device, he looked everywhere for the American supplier so we could get some for the store.

Then a few months ago a wine gift salesperson walked in our door with the Peugeot Culinary catalogue and Randy about wet his pants with excitement.  Not content to acquire more two-prong cork pullers, he ordered a rechargeable electric cork puller, a massive wing puller, a lever cork puller, another puller with the same design of the old Screwpulls, an elegant decanter and a decanter drying rack.  All are boxed in "manly" solid boxes that make great gifts.  And they are especially good if the recipient of your generosity is yourself.

Delectable New Food Arrivals

Last month we added Nueske Applewood smoked bacon and smoked liver paté to our deli case along with West Coast Prime steaks in individual cryovac packs.  This month's new offerings include a delicious new line of desserts called Sweetaly in Sea Salted Caramel Panna Cotta, Strawberry Ricotta Cheesecake and Tiramisu individual 3 oz. servings, each for 3.99.  Made in Oceanside.


Another delectable recent acquisition are Peanut Butter Balls from Celebré made in nearby Costa Mesa.  A 4 ball assortment goes for $9.99.  Warning:  if you give this as a hostess gift for someone who won't share, lifelong friendships may dissolve.  They are hauntingly good.

Host an instant wine-pairing party with Wine Sticks from The Sweetery in South Carolina, a line of crunchy biscotti-like cookies with wine pairing suggestions right on the box.  In five flavors, each $5.99.  Read more at https://www.thewinecountry.com/search/The+Sweetery/
