January 2014 Newsletter

Happy New Year!


All of us at Angela’s wish you and yours a very happy and healthy 2014.


Make a new year’s resolution to try something different every month.  Whether its cheese, wine, or a new cooking sauce, let 2014 be a year to expand your palate.

Wines of the Month:


La Pergola D’Antonio Pinot Grigio 2012

Winemaker Notes:  Produced with rich ripe grapes on the hills of Veneto, the most classic area for this famous Italian white wine.  It has a brilliant clear yellow color and a crisp, dry and elegant taste rich of notes of flowers and tropical fruits.  It is delicious with salads, light appetizers, soups, pasta dishes and any fish, especially shellfish.  Serve chilled.


La Pergola D’Antonio Chianti 2012


Winemaker Notes:  Brilliant ruby red, rich in fruity notes, dry, elegant and soft.  Its notable body and texture make it a perfect companion to any pasta dish, red meat and veal or chicken “parmigiana”.

Jan. Special: $9.95 per bottle or 2 for $17.90

Pasta of the Month:

Mediterranean Ravioli – A rich blend of roasted eggplant, chopped red peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, black olives, fresh chopped basil, and feta cheese wrapped in a spinach pasta.  A great side dish.  Serve with your favorite sauce.  Available in our freezer case.

                          Package of 12            $7.95


Cheese of the Month:

French Raclette


Raclette is a semi-firm, cow’s milk mountain style of a cheese that has a milky flavor and a silky, smooth texture. Younger and a bit softer than most other Alpine styles of cheeses, Raclette is delicious melted over potatoes, vegetables or bread. Eaten as a table cheese, Raclette has a smooth, creamy taste that is neither too salty nor sharp.  Raclette is an elegant cheese, exceptionally well-suited for cooler weather. Because this cheese is relatively graceful, this buttery cheese pairs well with many wines.our Starting with our own Vermont artisan cheddar, we’ve made this Vermont staple tipsy by hop finish. Makes a great pairing partner to any brew

January Special @ $11.95/lb.

Recipe of the Month



  • 2 pounds thin-skinned potatoes (1 to 1 1/2 in.      wide), scrubbed
  • 1 red onion (1/2 lb.)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • About 1 pound raclette cheese (see notes)
  • About 1 cup cornichon pickles
  • Salt and pepper

1. Put potatoes in a 4- to 5-quart pan. Barely cover with water, put lid on pan, and place over high heat. When boiling, reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender when pierced, about 20 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, peel onion and thinly slice lengthwise. Mix with lemon juice.

3. Slice cheese; arrange in a shallow 8- by 11-inch casserole or 4 individual casseroles, each about 5 inches wide.

4. When potatoes are cooked, drain off most of the water and keep warm.

5. Broil cheese about 6 inches below heat until melted, about 5 minutes.

6. To eat, put potatoes, onion, and pickles on dinner plates. Spoon hot cheese, a few bites at a time, over potatoes. Add salt and pepper to taste. If cheese in casserole gets hard, return to broiler to soften, 3 to 4 minutes.
