5 Gifts Under $50

You still  have time to snag the perfect gift for the discriminating gourmet on your list.  Daniel has hand-picked 5 beautiful options under $50.
Rustichella d’Abruzzo PANETTONE – $42.95
The classic Italian Christmas Cake imported from one of Milan’s finest bakeries. Traditionally presented as a gift when visiting friends and family and served with coffee, wine or spumante, ours is as beautiful as delicious.  All natural flavors include traditional, sour cherry, and fig with chocolate.
Jasper Hill WINNIMERE – $39.95
This limited release cheese will shine at any holiday gathering.  Just awarded a gold medal at the prestigious World Cheese Awards in London (not bad for an American original)  these small wheels reflect the terrior of their Vermont home with the style of the famous Vacherin Mont D’Or.  Wrapped in spruce bark, each one pound wheel is served whole. Just cut back some of the top rind and spoon out the oozy, unctuous interior paste.  An amazing presentation that is even more amazing to enjoy.  $39.95
CHEESE + BUTTER MAKING KITS – $25.95- $39.95
For the foodie on your list – these kits come with everything but the milk to make fresh mozzarella, European soft cheeses or butter. Handsome in their clamp top jars with complete instructions.  Cheese doesn’t get any fresher than making your own.
Designed to widen one’s appreciation for all things fromage, you can choose from our current class schedule of wine or cheese pairings, our passport series or cheese 101 basics.  Just enroll the recipient in one of our informal and informative classes or present a gift card for them to choose their own.
Who doesn’t love a bottle of bubbles? Our choice for authentic French Champagne at a great price.  From the Laherte family estate, each bottle is bursting with juicy apple, peach blossom and  mineral notes with a supple, velvety texture that compliments cheeses and holiday fare from breakfast to midnight.
