As we prepare for the Holiday Season at Marrow and Spice, we are preparing traditional holiday foods and baked goods, but also talking to customers with special dietary needs about options available to that meet their personal requirements.
Lately many busy customers are electing to have Marrow and Spice prepare specialty meals for them so that they can enjoy delicious foods while sticking to their dietary restrictions. Whether this involves avoiding Gluten, Lactose, Salt, Carbs, or Sugar, Chef Roger enjoys the challenge of creating delicious food from scratch for you. There is always a selection of prepared and frozen entrees in the freezer for those nights when you forget to take something out of the freezer, or just don’t have time to cook.
At the same time, Andrea has been impressing all with her Christmas baking, both regular and Gluten-Free. She recently created a couple of loaves of Gluten-Free, Yeast-Free, Lactose-Free bread, and it was delicious!
Meanwhile, Mike has been trying to stay out of the way of these two local food specialists, while still stocking he shelves with dry-rubs, pickles, kombucha, and lacto-fermented vegetables.
Folks who visited Marrow and Spice on Saturday were treated to some of the producers offering their wares in-person. Customers could visit, sample new products and ask questions. Sue-Anne Atkins of Fairy Sweet Chocolates was buried in Christmas goodies, from double-coated chocolate raisins and Espresso beans to “Lumps of Coal”, and Chocolate Reindeer. Jenna from Zengarry Cheese had a great day offering samples of Zengarry’s amazing cashew nut “cheeses” in six flavours. Helen from Bee Real alternative health products was happy to show customers her new line of beeswax-based cosmetics. Jada was busy in the kitchen producing mouth-watering food from her native Thailand. People were so excited about Jada’s Thai food that Marrow and Spice has decided to feature her weekly, so watch the Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/Marrowandspice) to know which day is Thai food day at the store!
