Portugalia Marketplace

Wednesday, 26. March 2014 16:50

Portugalia Marketplace, Fall River, MA

Portugalia Marketplace, Fall River, MA

A new market recently opened in Fall River that will undoubtedly take the South Coast by storm.  Portugalia Marketplace is a spin-off of Portugalia Imports, a wholesaler/distributor of ingredients for Portuguese cooking.  It is a friendly, family, neighborhood Portuguese market and so much more.

The folks at Portugalia Marketplace no doubt take their cues from places such as Chelsea Market Place in New York or the best of contemporary Portugal/Azores markets.  Housed in a former factory outlet in Fall River, the fully renovated facility houses a gorgeous open floor plan market with beautiful exposed brickwork, tall ceilings with huge wooden beams and old windows.  The floor to ceiling glass wall that sections off perhaps the largest display of international Bacalao, providing a salt cod room the likes of nothing you have ever seen in America. 

The market offers wonderful prepared dishes of traditional fare such as roast pressed chicken, braised octopus, Bacalao in two to three ways and various soups and sides. The cheese and charcuterie section is quite impressive and inspiring of all things chicken, pork and blood. Olive oil is given the same respect as fine wine as they are both displayed like alter objects; both with ample selection of variety and budget.

The nicest aspect of this market is the Café with true European coffee, pressed sandwiches and pastries. They carry items rarely seen in other markets. You truly feel like you have traveled to an Old World, European marketplace in Portugal and then you realize you are in your own back yard. It is an exciting place.

And I suggest you check out the interesting root vegetables from the Furnas Islands and the dried fava bean nuts section.

Enjoy,

Jim

In Pink the New Black?

Wednesday, 12. February 2014 15:44

Rose
Don’t let the snow on the ground stop you from chilling out with a glass of Rose.  The number of Provence Rose’s in the United States has tripled in the past five years. No longer considered that sweet pink wine”, it has become a festive as well as food wine.  Rose’s are a great compliment to Asian dishes, Sushi as well as lobster and affordable with bottle pricing normally between $10 and $25.

Restaurant Manager Sue Papi has had great success with AIX Rose, a dry Rose from Provence.  It has a bright, pale-pink color and features a delicate balance of crisp acidity and soft, ripe summer fruit with a  creamy finish.

Cheers!

Jim’s Journey

Bay Club Executive Chef Jim Mercer

While walking about the streets of San Francisco last month I discovered that the Winter Fancy Foods Show was going on at the Moscone Center.  I had not been to the show in years so I decided to purchase a ticket and spend the afternoon exploring the endless offerings of national and international, new and established, prized gourmet foods. I now know far more than anyone needs to know about burger condiments, tea, chocolate, cheese, Kobe beef and the like.  What piqued my interest was the olive oil from NapaValley.  I particularly liked Grove 45 from St. Helena.

C_and_H_Sugar_factory

On my way up to Wine Country after my visit to San Francisco I accidently discovered two awesome little towns; Port Costa and Crockett.  The only thing you can see from the highway as you approach Crockett is the giant C and H Sugar sign. As I entered it felt like a secret village just getting ready for a hipster revival.  There is a great deli and a couple of very cool galleries in this one neighborhood town at the end of a road to nowhere.  At the end of that road is a great find called the Bull Valley Roadhouse.  A super hip restaurant serving old school cocktails and fine food from the team of The Slanted Door.  I heard Conde Nast has even got hip to the place.  Be sure to check it out if you are in the area.

Happy Travels,
Jim
