Stumped as to what to give your foodie inamorata/o for Valentine's Day? Here are my five favorite locally-sourced foodie gifts.
Available now through February 16th at Central Market.
5. Banner Dark Chocolate Butter. One of the many delicious products featured in Central Market's Chocolate Festival, this cocoa butter goes well with crisp toasted baguette slices. Available now through February 16th.
2. The Brownie Bowl's Red Velvet Brownie (Bowls).As its name might suggest, The Brownie Bowl, in addition to offering luscious brownies in creative flavors such as peanut butter and bourbon Mississippi Mud, also vends edible bowls MADE OUT OF BROWNIES. Yes, you read right. Pick up a four-pack of the red velvet variety and a pint of Ben & Jerry's for the ultimate Valentine's Day sundae.
1. Urban Eats' Jalapeno Bacon Jam. Although much of the fare at Urban Eats requires in-house dining (really the best way to enjoy their Cowgirl Sliders and Monkey Bread), if you must get something to go from this bistro that doubles as a gourmet market, bring home a container of their addictive jalapeno bacon jam to your beloved. With a modest bite from the pepper, porcine notes from the bacon, and just a hint of sweetness, this jelly is wonderfully balanced and the perfect complement to, well, just about anything.
