Villa Reale Pistachio Cream
With its beautiful bright green pistachio color and creamy, rich texture, this sweet Sicilian spread is transcendent spooned generously over whole grain toast or pancakes for a knock-her/his-socks off breakfast. Or serve this silky-sweet goodness over vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Plucked from organic trees in the Peruvian Amazon and Ecuadorian Coast, Alter Eco’s high quality cacao beans journey to the base of the Andes Mountains, where they are transformed into some of the world’s finest cocoa products. Then they travel to Switzerland, where expert chocolatiers craft the goodness into unique and habit-forming bars and truffles. And then, to Fairway! Go classic: get chocolate. It’s a good move, we promise.
Strawberries with Fairway Saba
Ripe, red, sweet strawberries are sensual; saba is sexy. “Saba (or ‘vincotto’, or ‘mosto cotto’) was handed down from medieval times in Central Italy, Emilia Romagna. It was the original sweetener used by the masses who had neither access to nor means to acquire cane sugar. Saba came about via the long, slow-cooking of the liquid accrued from re-pressing the detritus from crushed wine grapes.
The result is a deep, dark, thickish, intensely sweet substance billowing with nuance that immediately found favor among the Italian people of these early days who hungered for an ingredient with which to make pastries and other dishes requiring a sweetener. A spot-on sauce for those strawberries! Drizzle and prepare for happiness.
Only about 2% (!) of meat in the United States is graded as USDA Prime, and Fairway Market has it available each and every day. When you purchase USDA Prime beef at Fairway, you are receiving the tenderest, juiciest, and tastiest cut of beef available. This is the very best your money can buy – young, well-fed beef cattle with abundant marbling and tenderness.
Dry-aging enhances beef in two unique ways: First, the process causes moisture to evaporate from the meat, which in turn develops a more intense flavor. Secondly, the natural enzymes in the beef work to produce a more tender piece of meat than any you’ve experienced before.
Treat your Valentine to the excruciatingly delicious flavor, outrageous umami brilliance, and tenderness of our USDA Prime Dry-Aged steaks. Now that’s love.
