Love is in the air at the Co-op and we don't need cupid around to make the magic happen. At our free Co-op Valentines Sample Evening on Friday, February 13 there was no need to be superstitious as our Co-op staff presented sweet baked treats, a chocolate fondue dipping station, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, wine, beer and much more.
Our very talented pastry chefs set up a chocolate fondue dipping station with their ever so light angel food cake and buttery shortbread hearts. Doris and Kristin also handed out fresh strawberries and dried fruits to try in the fondue which was a huge hit with our guests.
If you are looking for romantic beverages, the Co-op should be your only stop! With a huge selection including wine, beer and mead you will surely find what your date desires. Justin was pouring Chocolate Sombrero and Tramp Stamp beers from Clown Shoes Beer.
Chuck was pouring a Shiraz and Chardonnay from Wild Oats that paired lovely with the creamy goats cheese and organic blackberries that the Co-op's cheese buyer Suzy had put out. Steve was pouring a selection of wines including the very romantic Rosa Regal, a sparkling red from Banfi.
Other romantic suggestions we sampled included fresh rolled sushi from the Co-op's sushi counter, Café Indigo chocolate cake with Almond Dream non-dairy dessert, raspberry rose hibiscus tea from Republic of Tea, and lots of goodies from our health and beauty department.
We hope you found some romantic inspiration to woo your Valentine. You can stop by the Co-op to find all kinds of yummy romantic suggestions whenever the occasion arises.
