This Week: May 29th – June 5th

SimonPearceEpicureProductsSo many of our customers tell us that they have had the great experience of going to the Simon Pearce Mill and Restaurant in Quechee, Vermont.  By all accounts the food is fabulous at the restaurant so we were delighted when Simon Pearce introduced their Epicurean line featuring some favorite items from the restaurant. OnSaturday, June 4th we will be hosting a Simon Pearce Epicure tasting event from 11 am – 3 pm where we will be serving special treats highlighting the chutneys, dressings, sauces and more.  This event is free and no registration is required — just stop in and see us!

 
As I read the thoughtful evaluations from our cooking classes, the type of class that is most frequently requested is for knife skills.  Although all of our chefs do a bit of knife skills training with every class, it can be great to be immersed in the topic and Advanced Knife Skills on Saturday, June 4th at 11 am is your chance to do just that!  Chef Robin Nathan will be leading the way as you chiffonade, julienne, butterfly, and filet your way to expert knife skills. All cutlery will be 20% off to class participants.
 
Marcel’s and Marché will be closed on Monday, May 30th for the Memorial Day holiday.  We remember with you those who have made the ultimate sacrifice in service of our great country.
