Quick Overview

Let someone know how special they are with an assortment of gourmet treats built from our San Francisco pantry must-haves for hosting a cocktail party on short notice, or an impromptu picnic on a summery day.

 

Our gourmet appetizer gift begins with bread—Rustic Bakery’s famous Olive Oil and Sel Gris Flat Bread—because it’s a great compliment to pretty much everything, and a good palate cleanser, something to come back to between the richly complex flavors ahead.

 

The next course is cheese, of course. We chose Central Coast Creamery’s Seascape, a hand-crafted, aged cheese made from blended goat and cow milk. We fell in love with this cheese the first time we tasted it, and every time we serve it, it wins converts.  

 

Fra’Mani’s Salame Calabrese is a unique take on a Southern Italian style, combining wild fennel seed, sweet and hot Calabrian pepperoncino, and chili flakes.

 

Next we’ve included Rustic Bakery’s Cheese Coins, savory cookies made with aged gruyere, artisan cheddar, and reggiano parmesan, along with enough butter and flour to keep them wonderfully crumbly.  These coins disappear in minutes in our house!

 

To round out this gourmet appetizer gift box, we’ve included a pint of green Lucques olives seasoned with rosemary and lemon from Good Faith Farms. These are not your ordinary olives. Good Faith Farms cures their olives between 6 and 18 months in a brine solution of gourmet and local salts, to produce truly raw olives with complex, earthy flavors, and a crisp texture unlike anything produced commercially, with the health benefit of preserving a host of antioxidants and enzymes that are typically lost in commercial olive production.

 

No party is complete without a sweet gourmet treat. We’re also including a tin of June Taylor’s candied citrus peel, and Jade Chocolate’s delicious chocolate-covered mangoes. They’re both great finishes for this luxurious platter of fresh flavors.

 

We’ve taken our favorite gourmet foods from the San Francisco Bay Area and combined them into one beautiful package that’s perfect for any occasion.

 

Really want to splurge? Our "Give me more" gift also includes Oren's Kitchen wild rosemary almonds and some more of our favorite sweet treats.
