I don’t know about you, but I’ve not much cared for this pandemic.
Having experienced life with and without, I prefer without. YMMV.
Still there have been many memorable food experiences, and I’m going to show you mine with the expectation that you will yours.
Forge Baking Company in Somerville. For fifteen months, they were my salvation, they were my rock. They delivered very good sourdough bread of various types, excellent fresh mozzarella, unusual produce (young turmeric anyone?), great sandwiches, croissants with shatter to equal the best (there was a separate thread on this that I haven’t the time to track down now, but I’d put Forge up against any competition), and, of course (hey they’re a “baking company”) their excellent ice cream with its Herrell’s heritage.
Tim Maslow’s FishyFish outfit. They supply cooked food, fresh fish, etc., every Friday, and as you might expect it’s all superlative. Two weeks ago the prepared food was themed around tacos, last week Mediterranean, this week Thai. They’ve recently added Theresa Paopao, most recently the wine director at Oleana, to their operation and she has excellent wine-pairing suggestions with their food. I’ve ordered from them pretty much every week they’ve been around and have never been disappointed.
These were my two major happy stories. I’ve others to share, but enough about my happiness. Yours?
