Bonjour Les Amis!
Spring has arrived! Which means walks along the Seine, lunching on cafe terraces, and having les piques-niques in Parisian parks. And, whatever the weather, we at ParisGrocery have plenty of french treats to help you say bienvenue  to spring.

Chateau de Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape 2010 $117.00
The key to this vintage is said to be the cool nights of August in Southern Rhone, which promote a well-balanced acidity. Dark and dense, featuring “crushed plum, linzer torte…singed cedar…and warm paving stone”, Wine Spectator gives this Chateauneuf 96 points.

French Kisses, D’Artagnan $15.49
The ultimate amuse-bouche! Armagnac-soaked  prunes are filled with mousse of foie gras to make these bite-sized “kisses”. Pair these sweet and savory bites with champagne for a decadent treat. Food lovers beware.

Sriracha Powder $26.99/lb
The Indonesian spice with a cult following is now in powder form! It is not as diluted as the sauce, making it perfect for adding to rubs and dressings. At Brooklyn restaurant Talde, chef Dale Talde mixes the powder with ranch dressing, pouring the scrumptious combo on his bacon and blue cheese salad. Add this versatile powder to soups, grilled vegetables, or sprinkle on top deviled eggs and popcorn for a spicy kick.
 

A Bientot,
