St. Patrick’s Day is almost here! Café Fleur is here to give you only the best recommendations for how to make this holiday taste it’s best.
Dotterer’s Sweet Balsamic Vinaigrette and Mustard
Handmade in Newport, this old world label has some great taste. The vinaigrette is a great glaze for meats while the mustard is sweet, spicy and mimics a honey mustard, a winning combination with Valley Forge’s own cheddar with caramelized onions.
As for crackers, we applaud Effie’s crackers. Besides the colorful and playful packaging, these munchies sure have a great crunch! The oatcakes go well with any cheese, honey or jam. The nutcakes have made with wildflower honey and pecans. They are not as sweet as the oatcakes but go with everything just as well, even peanut butter. If you like cornbread, then the corncakes are meant for you! They are made with a touch of anise and taste like a cornbread cracker. All of these products are very versatile.
Here is a sample of some of our great cheeses to go with all of your needs, St. Patricks Day or not- Stop by the store and pick one of these up today, there is something for everyone’s taste.
What would an Irish day be without tea? Tea Fortē puts unique infusions into their amazing teas. You can smell right through the packaging, it’s that good. The teas come in sets: Coconut, Sampler, and Green Tea Essentials. If you are looking for something sweet and different, try the coconut sampler- you’ll swear you are having dessert while sipping on flavors such as coconut chai latte, coconut chocolate truffle, and coconut mango. The Sampler is fruity featuring tea like mango peach, early grey, ginger pear, black current. The Essential Greens is traditional and would make a great gift with green tea infused with lemon, mint and mango peach.
Remember that every Friday starting with Friday the 16th, Caramelized Onion Tarts by The Art of Bread will be a special. It is like French onion soup in a pastry. Starting on St. Patrick’s Day, Saturday the 17th, every Saturday will feature French Canele de Bordeaux as a special. Come in early because these treats won’t last long!
Erin Go Bragh!
