Dean & Deluca- Favorite Things
While visiting our kids in the Santa Rosa area for
Thanksgiving, Craig and I had a whole day for
for exploring. I had heard that there was a
Dean and Deluca somewhere in the area, and so
we set off to find it. My sleuthing led us
to Healdsburg, where we soon found out I was
totally wrong! A nice shopkeeper told us it
was actually located in Napa. Anyway, we had
a lovely, lovely drive through wine country
and finally found Dean and Deluca right on
the side of the highway, just north of Napa.
I walked in the door, and I was in Disneyland,
really fun stuff! The first thing I saw when
entering the store was this gorgeous pile of
persimmons in a great metal urn.
They had several types of imported, high fat content
butter. I bought a pound for Kelli to try in
her baking. I'm thinking shortbread...
I loved the bread wreaths all piled in a basket.
I wanted to buy this box of candy just for the cute
box, but I had no idea what was inside!
My favorite thing- tiramisu in a chocolate teacup.
