Thursday, April 17

No, I'm not talking about vegan wine. This week's tasting will focus on wines that pair well with flavors commonly seen during Easter, from breakfast wine to wines that work with sweet ham.

We'll see you at the tasting table at 6.

Your Saturday Chocolate Fixx - April 19

Meet Chocolatier Nicole Coady, owner of Fixx Chocolates

I met Nicole for the first time a few weeks ago but I was not a stranger to her chocolates. The more I learn about her devoted attention to her work, the prouder I am to introduce these chocolates to my shelves. But you don't have to take my word for it. Stop by this Saturday, she'll be here at 2 sharing all her collection.

Nicole's Bio

Saturday's Selection

abby's: Rich caramel in milk chocolate with sea salt.

andy's: Praline crisp with passion frit jelly.

bud's: Peanut butter nougat with roasted peanuts and sea salt.

chelle's: Cashew nougat with roasted cashew and caramel.

lulu's: Caramel with pretzels, coconut and sea salt.

mike's: Almond nougat with morello cherries.

nikki's: Peanut butter nougat with apple wood smoked beacon and maple caramel.

These delicate treats in their lovely packaging will be the "thing" to bring with a bottle of wine to Easter Sunday.
