Marabissi Il Panforte Sour Cherries and Chili Cake
Luxury Products
Marabissi Il Panforte Torta Amerene e Peperoncino
Always on the lookout for interesting products to incorporate in our recipes, we tried and loved Marabissi Il Panforte Torta Amerene e Peperoncino (Sour Cherries and Chili "Cake") imported by Italian Products & Beyond. The Sour Cherries and Chili Cake is like a fruit and nut pt, that also has cocoa, almonds, and honey is a delectable accompaniment to serve with cheese as well as incorporate in baking and savory culinary recipes. We used it to create our recipe for Luxury Experience - Grappa Sour Cherry Almond Chicken. Buon Appetito!

Vara Garnacha 2018 - Vara Winery & Distillery
VARA Winery & Distillery located in Albuquerque, New Mexico has a diverse and delectable selection of wines imported from Spain that go beyond the standard offerings. We love their Vara Garnacha 2018, a flavorful blend of Garnacha, Tempranillo, and Syrah grapes that is absolutely delicious. Juicy, fruit forward, currant, cocoa notes, and a slightly spicy finish, this is another great wine to experience. Cheers!

Becoming Dr Ruth - Music Theatre of Connecticut
Becoming Dr. Ruth written by Mark St Germain starring Amy Griffin as the estimable Dr. Ruth Westheimer and Directed by Kevin Connors at the Music Theatre of Connecticut (MTC) may be just what the doctor ordered for a night of inspiration! We saw the play on opening night, and it was riveting. Now more than ever, we can all use a bit of positivity in our lives, and the play, Becoming Dr. Ruth delivers in abundance. The play runs until February 21, 2021 and is available via Live Stream tickets or in person at the theatre in Norwalk, Connecticut. Bravo!

Absente Absinthe Refined
Liquor Cabinet
Absente Absinthe Refined
While you may not be able to jet off to the South of France on a whim, you can enjoy Absente Absinthe Refined imported by Crillon Importers, Ltd, anytime, anywhere. Absinthe was the favorite drink of the French artists Van Gogh and Degas, and Absente Absinthe Refined is a luscious absinthe product made in the South of France using wormwood, anise, mint, and spices. It packs a punch at 110 proof (55% Alcohol by Volume), so a little of this delicious product goes a long way. Luxury Experience was "In the Kitchen and Behind the Bar" TM creating hand-crafted cocktails and culinary recipes with Absente Absinthe Refined for you to enjoy.

Vara Viura 2018
Wine Cellar
Vara Viura 2018

Looking to expand your white wine horizons for 2021 and go beyond the usual chardonnay, sauvignon blanc or pinot grigio? We just "discovered" VARA Viura 2018 imported from Spain and bottled by VARA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, which is a sumptuously delectable blend of Viura, Muscat of Alexandria, and Albarino grapes. The VARA Viura 2018, Vino Blanco Espaol, is a dry, crisp white wine with lush green apple, citrus, and mineral notes. With only 13.2% alcohol by volume, it is a nice lower alcohol choice for 2021. Cheers!
