From The Pantry

Besides all the fabulous artisan cheeses that are our specialty, we also carry many other fine foods. We’ve described some of our standards—and current favorites—below, but there’s too much on the shelves to tell you about everything! Plus, we’re always on the lookout for something new—so make a point of checking in often.

The Staples:

Crackers & Flatbreads
We have a very wide assortment of crackers. After all, if you’re not using your cheese in your favorite recipe, on today’s salad, with fruit and nuts after dinner, or with a nice crusty bread—well then, You Need Crackers!
Choose your favorite or try any one of ours: Fine Cheese Co. crackers, Late July Crackers (organic), Monet crackers, Bremner Wafers, Sportic Bread Sticks, Falwasser Crisp Bread, Crostini Tuscan Crackers, Passport Flatbread or Le Lingue, a delicious Italian flatbread.

We carry Nosari Pastas—truly the best we’ve ever eaten. All semolina flour and bronze dies do make a difference! Available in Galle Francesine, Garganelli, Nastini or Gigli style. Take home al Dente sauce with your pasta choice.

Tea & Coffee
We feature coffee from Sonoma Valley Coffee Roasters. It’s what we brew for the pot at the end of the counter. Come by and try a cup—then take a pound home.
If you’re a tea drinker, we have a selection of wonderful organic and herbal teas from Mighty Leaf.
Or for something a little different, try Redbush Tea, the choice of Mma Ramotswe and her No.1 Ladies’ Detective Agency. Made from the South African herb Rooibos, which means literally red bush, the tea contains no additives, colorings, artificial preservatives or calories. Rooibos is also naturally caffeine free and extremely low in tannin.

Salt & Pepper
We carry kosher and sea salts—and peppercorns for the standard pairing. For something special, consider either the pink Hawaiian ‘Alea Sea Salt or the classic Fleur de Sel de Guerande from the marshes off the coast of Normandy. This last will work in one of our salt grinders.

Cook’s Cupboard:

Oils & Vinegars
Quality oils and vinegars make a difference to any dish and are well worth paying just a bit more for. If you’re not so sure, don’t take our word for it; come by the store and taste for yourself. We have fresh, flavorful olive oils and a nearly incredible selection of vinegars for you to choose from.

Baking Supplies
Vanilla extracts, honeys and exotic baking sugars—and did we say chocolate? Yes, we have chocolate! There’s Scharffen Berger, of course. And Barry cocoa powder, a dark cocoa powder from France that’s great for pudding—ask for a recipe. Then we have dolfin chocolate and Callebaut, both unsweetened and bittersweet. There’s more, but you must come by and see. If you need chocolate, we’ve got chocolate.
To top off whatever sweet thing you’re serving, there’s also King’s Cupboard chocolate or caramel sauce. Oh my.

We’ve got all kinds of tasty things to complement just about anything on your plate—from prepared mustards and pepper jelly to marmalades and jams. We have fig spread and quince paste, pearl onions and olive tapenade.
Pomegranate Molasses is one of our favorites. You have to try it to believe how incredibly good it is. Use pomegranate molasses on vanilla bean ice cream with strawberries, as a drink with fizzy water, as a glaze for duck, pork or chicken, or in a salad dressing with olive oil. An especially delicious dessert is pom molasses drizzled over a French triple-crème. The possibilities are endless!

Did we mention…
Salami, olives, gelato, sorbet, fresh fruit in season, and cold drinks from Fonteva, San Pellegrino and Rieme? Plus, linen towels, The Cheesemaker’s Daughter aprons and totes, glass ware and other surprises?
