balsamic vinegar agro di mosto
This very early stage balsamic, is sweet, before it's acidic. It shocks the palate for how smooth and sweet it is when you are expecting a young vinegar. You can use it liberally with the cost being so affordable as you would a balsamic in a salad or on your grilled veggies. Or finish a steak, a hamburger or even chicken. A last second addition to almost any dish!

Stennes Family Farms Lapin Cherries Area 51 Lapin Cherries
Big, Bold, Beautiful Red Lapin Cherries
The Lapins Cherry, is a big, beautiful, dark red, sweet cherry. Lapins are some of the largest, juiciest cherries that grow on trees. They're great for snacking, and so big that one cherry is a mouthful! Greg Batch, of Batch's Best Family Farms, says Lapins are his favorite of all the cherries. And he should know...

Although Bings are the more well-known sweet eating cherry, some of us here at ChefShop.com prefer the Lapin - you'll have to try them for yourself to see why! The crunchiness and juiciness just won our hearts . . . and our stomachs. If you crave "cherry cherry" concentrated flavor then you should order the Bings. Their slightly smaller size concentrates the flavor.

Bruce Cost Ginger Ale Ginger Ale
Ice cold, this is sipping' ale

Ginger Ale. Clear your taste buds and your memory of what you think ginger ale should taste like.

It's not "soda", nor is it some hard core British Ginger Beer. No, this is fresh ginger in liquid in a bottle. Made from some of the biggest ginger I have ever seen (Bruce Cost who makes it, showed me a piece of ginger) really makes it good.

When I first tried it, I didn't expect such amazing flavor. Even more surprising was the absolutely refreshing taste. A little cup goes a long way to revitalizing your brain, and it also has the immediate effect that you want more. It's that good!

No extracts, no oils, just fresh ginger,, and pure cane sugar. Use it to make a Gin and Ginger, Dark and Stormy, or just make it as cold as you can, pour into a frosted glass, and don't be stingy, baby!

Or as Norman Maine says; "ginger ale and …ginger ale" - Star is Born, 1937.

Katz Agrodolce Zinfandel Vinegar

Sweet and Sour Vinegar
Deglaze a pan or make a dressing
The versatility of this elixir will expand the repertoire of every level of cook. This excellent vinegar has a rich, complex flavor - try sipping a bit from a spoon. While the nose combines fruity with pleasantly sharp, the flavor is rich, mellow and winey.

Use this anytime you'd use red wine vinegar. For a simple salad dressing, add just a drizzle of olive oil, along with salt and pepper. You'll find you'll need less oil with the balanced acidity in AgroDolce than in your regular dressing recipe. It's great for sauteing, stir fries and marinades.

I love it for the versatility to go from salad to deglazing a pan of mushrooms or steak, it will absolutely make you happy. Have it in your summer pantry, and when winter comes you'll find a reason to use it, too.

non-gmo chickpeas
Non-GMO chickpeas

Chickpeas pair well with pastas, rice, and even heartier grains like hard wheat and farro. They make a distinctive dip, of course, but they’re even better in a long cooking stew. They can also be ground for flour, deep fried, or even made into sweet pastes, candies and puddings. For me, chickpeas were the gateway food that opened up my palate to all things Middle Eastern.

Just thinking of chickpeas I start to crave their complimentary flavors: I want figs, nuts, parsley, sweet onions and lemons too, please.

Grown here in the Northwest and are NON-GMO.
