Holiday Seafood Feasts Start Here!

posted on December 17th, 2018 by Dani Fogel

What comes to mind when you think of a holiday feast? Roasted, free-range turkey, honey glazed, spiral-sliced ham, and even a rack of lamb are the usual suspects, but if you've ever been privy to a holiday seafood feast - whether at an intimate Christmas Eve Dinner or an extravagant New Year's Eve Party, then you know just what a statement beautiful shellfish, sushi, and caviar will make! Succulent colossal cocktail shrimp or wild-caught shrimp platters, the classiest of caviar, and melt-in-your-mouth fresh crab cakes are menu musts for the holiday season trendsetter. Our Dungeness crab cakes are handmade with sustainable crab, seasoning, and just the right amount of breadcrumbs for a delicate and yet oh-so satisfying appetizer. Follow up the crab cakes with steamed Dungeness crab served with hot butter and lemon and a chilled wild-caught shrimp platter, complete with lemon and homemade cocktail sauce. All of our shrimp is wild-caught or highly regulated farm raised with a firm… Read More

Wine for the Weekend: The Calling Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

posted on December 13th, 2018 by Leslie Thomas

The Calling Russian River Valley Pinot Noir 91 points Wine Spectator 2015 Here is another unbelievable Pinot find that can adorn your table, make a great stocking stuffer, a surprise gift under the tree or a simple indulgence while cooking the holiday feast. Fruit of this vintage was sourced from several locations in the Russian River Valley, each vineyard site contributing critical, unique aspects to the complexity of the resulting wine. Vineyards located in the warmer end of the Russian River Valley contribute ripe fruit elements. Vineyards from the cooler areas lend a strong minerality and structural backbone, and vines at altitude with sandy, well-drained soil add complexity and structure. This Pinot Noir shows aromas of Bing cherry, cranberry and a hint of white pepper. On the palate, lush raspberry and strawberry complement excellent acidity and a lingering finish. Happy Holidays Sale price is $19.99 Save $15.00! Suggested Retail $34.99 Purchase 6 or more bottles and… Read More

Elevate your Holiday Dinner with USDA Rated Prime Rib Roast

posted on December 12th, 2018 by Dani Fogel

You could try to snag a reservation at a fancy restaurant for some top quality prime rib this holiday season, or you could impress your guests with the best of the best from our meat department. A rare find outside of fine steakhouses, our Prime Rib Roast is actually USDA Prime-rated for the highest marbling content and the most exquisite eating experience. It's also humanely raised, antibiotic and hormone free, and also comes dry-aged. The process is extremely meticulous, but it results in an incomparably tender and juicy bite of beef. Not all prime rib can be treated equally. That’s because not all prime rib is actually USDA prime rated. While most prime rib roasts you'll see in stores have USDA Select or Choice ratings, we are very proud to carry roasts with the coveted Prime rating, which falls within the top 2% of all USDA graded beef. All of our meat comes to us from revered ranchers who we’ve worked with for years, including Cedar River Farms. Their cattle is fed a 100%… Read More
