Smoked Trout We know you love our Smoked Salmon from Ducktrap in Maine. We sell it by the pound from our meat case and it is featured on our café menu. You should give the Smoked Trout a try. It’s a tasty addition to an omelet. And it makes an amazing dip/appetizer. Mix with cream cheese, crème fraiche, or plain(strained) yogurt and season to taste with lemon juice, capers, and a dash of black pepper or hot sauce. Serve with veggies and crispy crackers. So easy and definitely delicious!

Wine of the Week
Arnot-Roberts Syrah Clary ’16 “The 2016 Syrah Clary Ranch is dense, powerful and meaty, but very much in the Arnot-Roberts style built on restraint. Beams of tannin enshroud a core of inky blue/purplish fruit. There is so much potential here, but readers will have to be patient to allow that to fully emerge. Rose petal, lavender, mint and blood orange add brightness.” 95 Pts Antonio Galloni $49.99/btl
Face Masks Required Columbia City Council passed an emergency ordinance requiring the use of a face mask. In a continued effort to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff and customers, The Gourmet Shop will be requiring a face mask for anyone to enter the shop or indoor dining area. (This includes standing in line to pay after eating outdoors.) Please be prepared. Stay safe, wash your hands, and mask up!
