Item Highlights

Pluots

Pluots are a hybrid fruit that blends the best traits of plums and apricots. This crossbreed was first developed by Floyd Zaiger in the late 20th century through careful hybridization techniques. Pluots typically have smooth skin like plums but exhibit a rich diversity of colors, ranging from deep purple to rosy hues. They inherit the sweetness of plums combined with the slight tartness of apricots, making them a favorite among fruit enthusiasts for their balanced flavor profile.

Pluots can be enjoyed in various culinary applications, from snacking fresh to incorporating them into salads, desserts, or preserves. They hold up well when sliced into fruit salads or baked into pies and tarts. Pluots also add a vibrant burst of flavor when blended into smoothies or used to make jams and sauces. 

Raclette Milledome

Raclette Milledome originates from Alpine regions in France and Switzerland where raclette cheese has been enjoyed for centuries. This cheese is notable for its creamy texture and rich, nutty flavor, which develops through traditional cheese-making techniques. Raclette Milledome is named after the method of melting and scraping the cheese, known as “racler” in French.

Historically, raclette cheese was first mentioned in medieval texts and has since evolved into a beloved culinary tradition. The cheese is typically made from cow’s milk and undergoes a meticulous aging process to achieve its desired taste and texture. Traditionally, raclette is melted and scraped onto accompaniments such as boiled potatoes, pickles, and charcuterie. This communal dining experience, where each diner melts their own portion of cheese, has become a cherished ritual, especially during cold winter months. 

Foxglove by Tulip Creamery

Foxglove cheese, crafted by Tulip Creamery, is a double-cream, washed-rind cheese that undergoes a remarkable transformation as it matures. Initially soft and yielding when young, it evolves into a decadently runny, scoopable paste with age. The distinctive orange-colored rind develops earthy, pungent flavors from a unique blend of cultures including yeast, salt, and beer, applied during the cheese-making process. This results in a cheese that offers a rich complexity of flavors, combining creamy textures with bold, tangy notes.

At Tulip Creamery, Foxglove is celebrated for its ability to pair exquisitely with briny olives and their signature Pig & Fig Terrine. Its versatility shines whether enjoyed on a cheese board alongside these accompaniments or incorporated into gourmet dishes where its creamy consistency and robust flavors enhance culinary creations. 

Urban Sailor Xocolatl Coffee

Urban Sailor Coffee’s Xocolatl blend represents a harmonious fusion of history, craftsmanship, and quality sourcing. Founded with a passion for bringing exceptional coffee experiences to urban adventurers, Urban Sailor Coffee has established itself as a beacon of specialty coffee in Salt Lake City. Their commitment to sustainability and ethical sourcing is evident in every batch of beans they roast. Urban Sailor Coffee selects their coffee beans from regions such as the high-altitude plantations of Guatemala and the lush coffee estates of Ethiopia.

The Xocolatl blend from Urban Sailor Coffee pays homage to ancient Mesoamerican traditions, where cacao and coffee were revered for their invigorating and flavorful qualities. This blend incorporates roasted coffee beans with subtle chocolate undertones, creating a unique sensory experience reminiscent of the rich, complex flavors of traditional xocolatl. 

Blanxart Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts

Blanxart’s Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts is a testament to the brand’s legacy of craftsmanship and dedication to quality. Established in 1954 in Barcelona, Spain, Blanxart has earned a reputation for producing fine chocolates using traditional methods and premium ingredients. Their Milk Chocolate with Hazelnuts combines smooth, creamy milk chocolate with crunchy, roasted hazelnuts sourced from the Mediterranean region. Each bite delivers a harmonious blend of sweet chocolate and nutty flavors, enhanced by the richness and texture of the hazelnuts. Blanxart’s commitment to excellence in chocolate-making shines through in this indulgent treat, offering a delightful balance of flavors that captivates the palate and celebrates the brand’s heritage of artisanal chocolate craftsmanship.
