A few fine products. A vintage menu. And the worlds' most beautiful tostada.
Loved the article about Darrell Corti. Fortunate to live almost in walking distance of the store. It is truly an adventure.
Made the Hermine’s oatmeal cookies. Epic failure 😵💫
Thank goodness we get to continue to enjoy Ruth!!! I’ve been a fan for at least 30 years.
☺️ would love to know Darrell Corti. Thanks for another enjoyable newsletter.
Thank you for this piece. It’s that cold, gray part of the year in New England. Letting my eyes dance over your words about the colors, flavors and personalities (connoisseur not snob). And a Columba for Easter?! Yes please.
As a Sacramento native I can’t tell you how proud I am to read this post. We have a true gem in Corti Bros and I realize how lucky I am to have this in my backyard.
Isn't Vance something wonderful? He showed us around one happy weekday and I learned so much! I love Monsieur Marcel.
“And what’s the point of knowing a lot about food if all you get from it is disappointment?” Omg I've never felt so SEEN. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful line.
Not wrong about that last quote 😁
