Quick Takes Before Easter Sunday
Stop by Edis Chocolates today for hand-crafted Easter chocolates and the to-die-for chocolate truffles so beloved by her fans. Grab freshly baked croissants or a French baguette while you're there. If you miss her at the shop, you'll find Edis at Barton Creek Farmer's Market on Saturday.
Antonelli's Cheese Shop "just got a big fresh batch of local cheesemaker CKC Farms Jalapeno & Artichoke Chevre Spread in, and it's rocking."
The Austin Wine Merchant just received a new shipment of Domaine de Fontsainte Rose', a "stunningly balanced, extremely appetent wine! Ideal as an aperitif with toast and crushed olives, or with wok-fried vegetables and garlic mayonnaise, grilled fish, lamb tajine, finely roasted guinea-fowl with rosemary."
If you're cooking for a crowd, pick up a magnum of La Vielle Ferme Recolte 2010, AOC Ventoux, Luberon.
Super cheap price but great balance with a beginning, middle and end worthy of much higher priced wines. It's great when you're throwing a party or just want a glass of wine.
