Summer is the perfect time of year to display your hosting flair with a memorable picnic or other outdoor fete complete with gourmet and wine. It's an easy way to add polish and panache to any meal. Whether you’re in the great outdoors or in the back yard, your picnic can exude the elegance of gourmet food.
For those who are new to the gourmet game, planning a picnic or other outdoor feast may seem daunting. If you’re not quite at the aficionado stage, why not try browsing the selections in our online gourmet food store? This will give you some great ideas and open your mind to dishes that are easy to prepare without sacrificing an ounce of flair.
For an appetizer, you can serve some Matiz Gallego Spanish Sardines in Olive Oil or Adro Latvian Smoked Sprats Sardines on gourmet crackers. An imported cheese or charcuterie plate adds a conventional twist, and summer produce is always a no-brainer. You can’t go wrong with the amazing selection of summer produce available in our store. You can also serve something more exotic, such as Saaq’s Pistachio Liver Pate or Billot French Helix Escargot Snails.
If you plan on grilling, take it up a notch from typical hamburgers and hot dogs by serving more exotic fare such as Saaq’s Bavarian Bratwurst, Swiss Bockwurst or Evergoods Fine Foods Polish Sausage. Another unique item that is always a favorite is Saaq’s German Salami.
When it comes to gourmet wine and other beverages, your options are endless. If you’re local, come in to our store to browse our incredible selection of wines. For dessert, why not give a selection of cookies a more unique spin with choices such as Forno Bonomi Italian Amaretti Cookies or Cookies Con Amore handmade Italian cookies.
