Your Cart is Empty

Autumn is the best time of the year to go for country drives in Connecticut. Though we live in a suburban area, we are lucky to be so close to such bucolic landscapes. Driving north for just thirty minutes, you find yourself surrounded by charming farmhouses, babbling brooks and rusty red horse trailers sitting in the woods.

Cider Mill in Redding CTIf you want to live out the pages of a storybook, take a scenic drive through the town of Redding, CT. The historic New England village of Redding has been meticulously preserved. The town green, bare of any signage and commercial establishments, is comprised only of a classic old church and a few other long-standing white clapboard buildings. Walking through the green makes you feel as if you’ve stepped back in time.

Getting lost on the winding roads of Redding, we came across so many beautiful things. On our trip, we met a sweet, gentle horse named Gypsy grazing in her pasture. We stumbled upon a one room school house that dates back to the late 1700s. We even passed by a beekeeper out front of her home, busy at work, prepping her hives for the winter. It was a serene afternoon surrounded by the beauty of rural life.

I first met Marlon at a charity event, where a private dinner catered by him was auctioned off for a cool $14,000 (by the way, two of those dinners sold that night). Between his charisma, fascinating stories of the rich and famous, and delicious food, it’s easy to see why.

Truffle Butter
Truffle Butter

by Jojo Frey December 04, 2017

Truffle butter is a great way to preserve the aroma of truffles. Chefs recommend using truffle within five days or so. Aside from freezing it, making truffle butter is a good method to preserve the flavor. But, let’s be real… ain't no way truffle butter will last more than a few days in anyone’s fridge!!
