I adore a tasting menu where I get to try out a bunch of different small bites of food with a variety of flavors. This is a fun way to spark some excitement in your household over what my now be turning into redundant redundant boring boring food selections. Gourmet stores provide the most variety with specific ingredients like salt, hot sauce, oils, syrups, and on and on usually packaged as attractive gift sets. Marx Foods even offers a sausage variety pack with 12, yes 12, varieties of sausage including Elk and Wild Boar!!! The prices can be intimidating and prohibitive but you can definitely catch sales. Recently, I had a popcorn sampling ‘menu’ with several different salts including lemon salt, smoked salt, and vanilla salt plus a white truffle oil option. Harry & David and Williams Sonoma may be the two most popular and well known gourmet food vendors. However, don’t underestimate the stores you may not have heard of who specialize even more in the gourmet food marketplace like Stonewall Kitchen and Robert Rothschild. The latter was one of my father’s favorites with tasty sauces, dips, and toppings made with flavorful ingredients like pineapple and wasabi! Heck, if you have an item in your kitchen that you love it’s possible they have an entire line of products worth checking into! Department Stores like Macy’s have great gourmet food gift sets where you can find a lot of variety typically within a single brand. In some cases these even provide you the opportunity for a multi-course tasting menu including dessert. Plus department stores tend to have amazing discounts, especially for seasonal items. Macy’s, for example, regularly offers 30% off online prices for a select array of items.
