Try it, you'll like it!




This Saturday June 2nd Cheese Plus is having an anniversay event. Stop by between 3 and 7 pm and taste local goodies I love like CMB Sweets jam, McQuade's Chutney and Charles Chocolates. In fact, I will be the one sampling my friend Alison's fabulous chutney that I've been raving about forever. Alison is busy with another gig and I offered to lend a hand. Most importantly, this is your chance to see if you like it before buying it.

Should you happen to buy some McQuade's Chutney between 3 and 7pm which is when I will be there, I have a special incentive. I will be giving away goodies from my vast collection of crap treasures. Purchase a jar, show me the receipt and say the not-so-secret phrase "Cooking with Amy" and pick something from the grab bag, while supplies last. You could end up with a book, a knife sharpener, a deluxe vegetable peeler, a wine chiller, an apron, who knows! Even if you can't stand chutney, stop by and say hi anyway.

Also in the neighborhood are Nick's Crispy Tacos, The Candy Store, and two of my favorite wine shops for finding bargains, William Cross Wine Merchant which always has a great selection of wines under $15, and The Jug Shop which has one of the best selections of Australian wines, including my current love, sparkling shiraz. You could also check out Biondivino another addition to the neighborhood, which specializes in Italian wines, though it may be tougher to find bargains there.
