Artisan Cheese and Charcuterie Board
This week, check out our Artisan Cheese and Charcuterie Board. It features a variety of meats and cheeses from Charcuterie, an artisanal shop and delicatessen in Unity, Maine, and is served on one of Allen Danforth's hand crafted hor d'oeuvre boards.

Keep an eye out; in the coming future we plan to roll out different appetizers (antipasto, anyone?!), that will be served on Allen's beautiful wooden boards- which, by the way, are available for sale at The Homestead, as well as at Mixed-Up!

A taste of New Orleans

Muffa-what-a?!
Muffaletta.
Yep. The name is quite the mouthful, and, well, the sandwich is too!

The Muffaletta sandwich was concocted back in 1906 by an Italian immigrant living in New Orleans, and let me tell you... it's a towering feast of a sandwich! 
It starts with a fresh, baked-in-house muffaletta (which is also the name of this particular kind of bread,) and only gets better from there. The best meats and cheeses, and an incredibly exquisite olive salad come next, and the resulting combination of flavors is truly sublime.
Treat yourself to a taste of New Orleans. Have a Muffaletta. It's what's for lunch!

We've been making our own smoked ricotta. Right here, in our own kitchen.
How cool is that?

Simple, yet bursting with a flavor that is delicately complex, our smoked ricotta makes our Mushroom Smoked Ricotta Toast a most delightfully light, satisfying lunch.
You just have to stop in for lunch this week and try it!

But, right now, watch this week's video and see just how we do it!
