Today the weather has warmed up and the twins needed to burn off steam, I suggested we go to the farmer’s market in down town Grand Rapids. We have not been there since the inside part opened.
Right when we entered you could feel the vibrant life working to create food, but that does not matter right now because I found cheese, meat and wine in shop named Aperitivo. Of course I walked around and checked out the place, even wore the energy out of the twins. I returned for as I passed Aperitivo I seen Speck for sale not to mention the mouth watering cheese.
Staff extremely friendly even before I stopped to shop Aperitivo offered stickers for the twins. Random acts of kindness always make me smile. I decided I was going to pick me up a little snack for lunch at home. I knew I was getting Speck for the meat but was not sure about the Cheese. I was suggested a few different types of cheddars and sampled two of them. I went for the Keens Cheddar, I believe a cave dried for 12 months. I should pay more attention but meat and cheese senses took full control of my body.
Upon returning home I stored my snack in the refrigerator, figured I could eat it tonight once the kids are asleep. The twins grew tired so I would have some time to sit at my blogging station and decided now would be the time for snack.
OH MY GOD! Is the only way I can say it. Everything tasted so sensational. By far the best thing I have eaten in 2016. Meat and cheese paired together perfectly. I do wish I would have opened a bottle of wine to add to the experience. Even as I sit now my endorphins are still fluttering around my brain in the most happy way.
If I could I would buy a bottle of wine and sit there and try everything. Between the food and the conversation I believe it would be a all day event. I would also take more picture for I am never satisfied with my point and shoot.
I would say everyone should try this store, you will not find these items in your local grocery store, I would even say some of these items are hard to find in bigger city’s.
