SMEG Cookware The Gourmet Shop is excited to introduce SMEG’s first cookware collection to the Capital City! Thoughtfully and artfully designed by Rafaella Mangiarotti and Matteo Bazzicalupo from Milan studio, @deepdesign, the line is entirely Made in Italy. What we love: the patented base makes this nonstick cookware compatible with all cooking surfaces: electric, glass ceramic, gas – even induction! Tempered glass lids and stainless steel handles allow for safe oven use up to 480 F. Dishwasher safe and nonstick means easy cleaning and heathier cooking. Line includes 4 frying pans (9.5, 10, 11, and 12″ diameter), 2 casseroles (5 and 8 qt), 1 saucepan (3 qt), 1 deep pan (4 qt), and 1 wok (5.5 qt). The range is available in Cream, Black, and Red.
Wine Jellies Wandering Wine Glass handmakes an assortment of unique wine jellies. You will love this food spread that pairs with an endless amount of foods ranging from sweet to savory. Cheese and Charcuterie boards: a must — cream cheese: a match made in heaven — the maker highly recommends the Sangria jelly with cheesecakes and other baked goods. Established in 2016, it continues to be delightfully unexpected!
Nutkrack One of our favorite customers told us about Nutkrack. It has become our signature addition to all of our custom cheese and charcuterie boards. Once you taste it – nothing else will compare. Nutkrack is, quite simply, the best candied pecan you will ever taste. Equal parts salty and sweet, with the incredibly delicious and complex flavors of toasted pecans, you will fall in love at first taste! Now, there is a new addition to the family! The Nutkrack Everything flavor is made using the same outstanding pecans and method as Classic Nutkrack, but with their special blend of poppy and sesame seeds, garlic, and onion to create a unique sweet and savory flavor. Perfect with a cold beer or glass of wine. We have samples for you to try…just ask…but don’t blame us if you get hooked.

Wine of the Week
Jolie-Laide Syrah North Coast ’18
“The 2019 Syrah North Coast is a gorgeous wine. Black pepper, leather, red fruit, cedar, tobacco and dried herbs add striking layers of nuance that develop first in the aromatics and then further on the palate. All the elements come together so effortlessly. Drink 2020-2030.”
