Ingredients

Method

The Oakville Meyer Lemon Wasabi mustard is a perfect complement to our local Dungeness crab, and putting together a simple and flavorful butter sauce couldn’t be easier! Simply melt the butter, along with half a clove of finely minced garlic, until hot and aromatic. Remove from the microwave and stir in one to two teaspoons of Meyer Lemon Wasabi mustard (to taste), and enjoy.  Assume about two ounces of sauce per crab.

Purveyor Profile – Tout Sweet Patisserie

Today we visited sweet shoppe Tout Sweet Patisserie in San Francisco.   The Patisserie is located in San Francisco’s Macy’s Union Square and was founded by Master Pastry Chef {and Top Chef Desserts Winner} Yigit Pura along with Taste Catering and Event Planning’s co-owners, MeMe Pederson and Janet Griggs {premier event planners in San Francisco}.   With the intention to whet your appetite and imagination with a delectable selection of sweet and savory treats including French macarons, petit gâteaux (“small cakes”), verrines (layered parfaits) as well as beautifully packaged treats for gifts and home, came Tout Sweet Patisserie.   Like their pâtisserie, the store is bright, colorful, innovative and inviting.  Splashed with bright colors and modern lines this place speaks to your “inner child” as Chef Pura would say.   The desserts are no exception with delicious bites of pate de fruit, marshmallows and macarons, as well as jams, sauces and even a variety of wedding and celebration cakes.   We invite you to shop our selection Tout Sweet patisserie the next time you are in the store.  We hope you have a sweet filled day.

Welcome Baby Rambo

Our hearts are a little fuller this month as we welcomed a baby lamb over the Valentine’s Week.   Baby Rambo was welcomed with love from proud parents Fred and Ethel.  Mom has been keeping a close eye on our new little one but he seems to be enjoying his new home at Rudd Farms.   Rambo spends his days exploring the farm and we couldn’t be happier to have him a part of our Rudd Farms family. lambs

Heritage Style Thanksgiving at Oakville Grocery

With Thanksgiving almost upon us we are thrilled to share that our very own Rudd Farms free range heritage turkeys are now available at our Oakville store.  Less than one percent of the 265 million turkeys produced in the United States are considered heritage turkeys, so we’re lucky that we have a small portion.  Our heritage birds are raised locally and free range on Mt. Veeder.

Day 2 HI-RES

Our sister company Distillery No. 209 has put together an amazing gin brine that is sure to make this year’s turkey unforgettable.
