Missing Macaroons?

When friends or family are absent from your Seder table let them know you are thinking of them by sending a basket of holiday traditions –moist coconut macaroons, Eli’s handmade sourdough matzoh, sponge cake and Passover brownies.

Eli's List

While we wait for Spring to arrive….

…you’ll find us drinking Chablis. Zesty. Bright. Vibrant. Mineral. Savory. All adjectives that apply to the wines of Chablis, the most northern region of Burgundy. All too often underrated and overlooked by wine lovers, these wines share a purity, brightness and versatility that we love. We’ll be tasting and talking about them a lot in March while we scan the horizon for the first signs of Spring.

Flower Department

Spring is in the air….

By the stem, in a nosegay, a lavish bouquet or centerpiece, the focus is on carefully crafted arrangements mixed with untraditional choices. Easter and Passover are on the horizon, why not think about how you want to make a floral statement for the holiday?

 What's on Eli's Mind

I start saying "Spring is in the air…" on the first warm day in February and I keep it up till it comes true. A sort of fake-it-till- you-make-it season inducer. At this point any sign of the warmer weather ahead can thrill me—asparagus and rhubarb in the produce department, the arrival of the first soft shell crabs. All these things are reasons to feel optimistic which can often be hard on a grey, wet day, no matter the month.
