Hello again from DeLaurenti! I know it's been a long time since you've heard from us but please believe me, we've been super busy with lots of projects, construction and exciting things happening at the store. Yup, even after all these years, things are jumping around here!
First on the docket is the Seattle Cheese Festival. It's May 19th and 20th here at the Pike Place Market. It's our 8th year as host and we're pumped to be welcoming you - and all the cheese makers back to Seattle for this great event. As ever, you will taste hundreds of cheeses, learn how to make mozzarella and burrata (from our very own Shane Wahlund), and watch and learn from local renowned chefs as they prepare amazing dishes with cheese. You'll taste wines from all over in our Wine Garden and you will learn, in detail, facets of the cheese business only gleaned from our remarkable Seminars. All the info and details are online, of course, at www.seattlecheesefestival.com. Don't forget to check out the winning Mac-n-Cheese recipe at the site as well!
The next big thing to tell you is (drumroll):.. If you live even relatively close to Seattle, you can get a few hundred of our products delivered to you via Amazon Fresh. I'll wait while you re-read that last part. It's true! Amazon Fresh came to us to provide the finest gourmet foods to the folks in our neighborhoods and we said "yes." Simply go to http://fresh.amazon.com/Category?cat=delaurenti and you'll be at our storefront. We are just getting started so the selection isn't as deep as our store, but you can get lots of our famous items and specialty foods from the shelves and the deli delivered to your door. Pretty awesome, right? Please know that we love to see everyone come into the shop but we understand it isn't always easy - especially if you live many miles away. Please take a look at our storefront on Amazon Fresh, try it and tell us what you think. We'll be adding items as time goes on and hope to make this a wonderful option for you to fulfill your culinary needs.
And another thing... Matt and I are finishing up a DeLaurenti Cookbook. That's right; our very own little compendium of simple, delicious recipes and practical pointers will be available this summer. Stay tuned for a more definitive release date but know that it's on its way. (Wait until you see the photos!)
There's more, actually, but we'll save it for another time. Keep reading for what's floating our boat here...
See you at the store
