Can you smell the roses? We can too!
This past year has been rough, but with April's Best of the Market Box, everything is sure to be coming up roses! The time has come to shake winter off and blossom in the warm Spring weather, so here are a few goodies, reminiscent of a cherry blossom-viewing picnic, to help you get started.
Take a sip of The Artisan Sakemaker's refreshing and effervescent Apple Yuzu Cooler, and let the flavours of sweet apple, aromatic yuzu, and floral Junmai Nama sake bloom across your palate.
We've paired the Yuzu Cooler with yummy floral-inspired delicacies. Crackers are one of our favourite vessels, and we love Gone Crackers' Roast Shallot & Herb for their crunch and herbacious punch of flavour. Top them with a few slices of Oyama's Saucisses Seches Provencale, a salami that is delicately seasoned with a savoury bouquet of dried herbs and lavender buds. For a creamy bite, try the crackers with some of Benton's Buchette Aux Fleurs - an almost-too-pretty-to-eat goat cheese that is enrobed in colorful edible flowers. For the ultimate bite, pair the two together and drizzle some of Chilliwack River Valley's Wildflower Honey for an explosion of flowery, salty-sweet goodness.
Now that you've satisfied your savoury craving, it's time for something sweet and we've included two treats to round out this selection of floral delicacies! Our newest obsession - Fraser Valley Gourmet's Rose and Lemon Turkish Delight - are a jewel-hued treat that have a delicately floral taste that's perfectly sweet. They come in a convenient resealable pack, but we won't judge if they're all gone in one sitting!
Last, but certainly not least, we have the Award-winning Grapefruit and Rose Petal Tablet from ChocolaTas. This exquisite confection features delicious white chocolate infused with grapefruit and caramelized cane sugar. As if that wasn't enough, master chocolatier, Wim Tas, decided to top it off with fine rose petals - no wonder it was the winner of not one, but TWO awards!
