There was an unexpected delight this weekend. My BB and BSIL and I went to REI where we each purchased a pair of socks. I know. We are excitement personified. From there, we journeyed to Penzey’s. BSIL and I needed to restock. We got the necessary items and were talking to the clerks and they told us about a new shop down the street. Vom Fass. The store is only the third one in the U.S. There are about six in Europe.
What a fabulous place. They have flavored oils, balsamic vinegars, whiskeys, cognacs, vodka, gin, etc. All made by them. You can taste the product before purchasing. I got Truffle oil. Lovely. My BSIL got Basil oil. We also got balsamic vinegars. She got a beer vinegar and I got Aceto Balsamico di Modena Maletti Riserva Speciale. My BSIL also got a small bottle of the Reserve. We tasted wines. A perfectly lovely experience. I took a friend a catalog. He is a gourmet chef and was wondering about it. It seems someone else told him about the shop. It sure makes cooking lots more fun!! It is owned by a lovely lady from Switzerland and will become a regular haunt for BSIL and me.
The new week is upon us, so I’m going to leave you with a mover. Enjoy!!! It’s the Rolling Stones 1964 and “Fade Away” with Brian Jones on harmonica. Yup. They’re talented.
Happy Monday, all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
