If there’s one month of the year that’s tailor made for indulging in dishes spanning gourmet to grub, it’s November. With the most prized meal day serving as the month’s pièce de résistance, there’s lots to be thankful for. And, there’s no better way to exude the spirit than with sugar, spice and everything nice that fits into a wine glass.   


PIES, CHEESECAKE AND GALETTES – OH MY! 

Thanksgiving orders will be taken through Nov. 17.  Pickup on Nov. 21, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.  
It may be the last course of the feast, but dessert remains the priority even when our elastic waistbands are begging for mercy and Mr. Sandman lulls us toward food coma. Wow everyone with traditional pie favorites like pumpkin and apple streusel, cheesecake renditions like pumpkin gingersnap and caramel apple, or get a little crazy with the unexpected offerings of key lime pie, bourbon pecan pie or a sweet & savory blue cheese cheesecake with cranberry chutney on the side. Visit our website for a complete list of pie (serves 10, $28) and cheesecake (serves 12-14, $36) flavors, plus galettes (serves 12, $26), homemade ice creams (half-gallon, $15) and sides like fleur de sel caramel ($7) and chocolate sauce ($6) in just-right half-quart sizes to round out whatever you’ve got going on. Ask about our custom party platters, too. Need to gift it? We’ve got hand-crafted wooden pie boxes for $35.

WINE SPOTLIGHT

August Kesseler, The Daily August Pinot Noir 2015, $29. Proving that more than Riesling and Gewurztraminer emerge from Germany’s vines, this hidden gem of a Pinot hails from the distinguished Rheingau region located on the Rhine River, about a 20-minute drive west of Frankfurt. Light bodied, delicate and elegant, this would be so excellent with grilled or roasted salmon, light pasta dishes and definitely with a platter of stinky cheeses.
