The May-July issue is now in stores, compliments of Kowalski's!
This season we're playing with some of our favorite foods, putting a global spin on the seasonal dishes we seem to come back to every spring. From sandwiches and salads to cocktails and brats, you'll find more than two dozen recipes to shake up your routine throughout this issue. Culinary Director Rachael Perron has interjected some global flair into our usual spring and summer repertoire. To round out the menu, she's also sharing ideas for berry- and cherry-themed desserts, the perfect sweet ending to any summer meal.
We've a new spin on the croissant in the bakery that we're pretty excited about, too. The Pretzel Croissant is here, joining our lineup of buns and bun alternatives for your burgers and other BBQ faves.
We're also exploring the world of sake this summer, a more daring white wine alternative, if you will. Sake is growing in popularity in the Twin Cities, and our Wine Shops are stocking an impressive selection you won't find anywhere else. Wine Director Brian Mallie has also paired the global flavors in this issue of At Home with some wonderful local brews. You'll find his beer suggestions alongside Rachael's recipes throughout.
As usual, salads with worldwide appeal are on the menu at Roots for the Home Team this season. On the facing page you can read more about this pet project of our in-house dietitian and nutritionist, Sue Moores. We're extremely happy to sponsor this incredible youth program yet again this year and to be able to offer some Roots-inspired options in our deli throughout the coming months.
Sue Moores is also chiming in about the benefits of a globally inspired diet. Not only delicious, fusion cuisine and more international ingredients bring a sense of fun and adventure to eating that's actually good for your health! Start planning your culinary vacation on page 22.
As always, we love sharing the Joy of Good Food with you and look forward to seeing you in the stores!
