FEATURED PRODUCTS

Champagne Mango

The Champagne Mango is a result of the cross pollination of several different mango trees in its native land, Mexico. Unlike the traditional mango the champagne mango is ripe when its color is a deep yellow. In order to achieve ripeness store the mango at room temperature until it turns deep yellow.  The sweet, creamy, and slightly tart flavor of this mango is best enjoyed at room temperature as well. Champagne Mangoes are available seasonally from January through August.

Taleggio Ca De Ambros

This is a washed-rind cow’s milk cheese characterized by a reddish brown, mold-marbled rind.  In the heart of Valtaleggio, where this stracchino style cheese originated in Northern Italy, this artisan producer has been making farmhouse taleggio for generations and ripening it naturally.  We import the cheese with a slightly thicker rind than usual in order to protect the cheese and prolong its shelf life.  Taleggio is creamy and supple, becoming softer as it ages.  Its flavor develops into a rich, earthy, and tangy cheese as it matures.  Simply spread this cheese on fresh baked bread or melt onto pastas and flatbreads for a rich texture and flavor.
