Gourmet to Go opens in the village
Well known St Francis Bay Chef, Rose Carter recently opened her shop “Gourmet to Go” in the village and it is a must visit. Situated next door to KC Properties behind the pharmacy in the it is already proving to be a popular and much needed addition to shopping in St Francis.
No longer will you need to wait for the monthly market to savour Rose’s offerings which have long been in demand at the Market. SFT ‘s first visit to Gourmet to Go this week could easily have broken the bank such is the choice of delightful food on offer but discipline and a realisation that I could return the next day rather than stocking up as one normally has to do when shopping at the market.
My choice on this my first visit was a really generous slice of pork pie to take home for lunch and for a mid-morning snack, the nicest sausage roll I have ever tasted. So generous was the pork pie slice that it actually was enough for two lunches.
Popping in the following day to take some photographs for this article the temptation was simply too much and I left, not just with a few photographs but also a chicken pie and a slice of cheese cake.
Gourmet to Go offers a wide choice of frozen dinners to take away (see menu) and certainly makes life easier for us single types and no doubt for busy moms on those days where she just doesn’t have time to prepare a family supper.
Gourmet to Go has a small but delightful choice of products either for a sweet tooth or something more savoury and Rose will be taking orders for fresh vegetables that will be delivered fresh from the farm to the shop that customers can order in advance. She has also in the process of introducing some deli items including a range of cheeses and cold meat cuts.
Pop in to Gourmet to Go during your rounds of St Francis for we can almost guarantee you won’t leave this delightful little ‘shoppe’ empty handed.
