First off, this has been a wonderful winter! Snow that modestly covers the ground with less than an inch and doesn’t overstay its welcome. That’s winter on Cape Cod the way I like it. Admittedly, things are pretty quiet here in sleepy old Harwich Port. Most of the snowbirds left us right after the new […]
Cranberry Liquors sponsored and all other local events, as well as our store’s newsworthy moments, awards and other acknowledgments.
The temperatures certainly don’t betray the season. It seems winter has come early to Harwich Port. If there is an upside to cold weather it is the phenomenon of spontaneous hugging as friends reacquaint upon entering the store. Good to see familiar summer faces! Happy to shake off the early chill. As you prepare for […]
If you like quiet and cold, you’ll love sleepy little Harwich Port in the winter. Yep, not much going on. We will use the next couple of months to clean and regroup for the busy summer season.
Jeff at Norabella is getting it done this season! Look below to see the menu planned for January 18th!
With the fourth of July weekend (week?) here, summer time on Cape Cod is in full swing. The roads are jammed, the air is hazy, hot and humid and everybody is sporting a suntan or worse. Here in Harwich Port, Route 28 becomes its own little version of Disney World’s Main Street USA; people walking, […]
During my regular trip to the TD Bank in Harwich Port, I was pleasantly surprised by the recipe below. Maureen prepared this tasty spread for sampling today and it was great (Okay, I tried it four times). Prepare and chill this 2-3 hours before serving. Throw in a bottle of sauvignon blanc, and I think […]
Thanks to Jeff at Norabella’s and Dominic from Bertani Wines and Sterling from Ruby Wines, our distributor and coordinator for the wine dinner.
The food and wine were outstanding and paired very nicely. Dominic, in addition to talking us through wines from the northeast of Italy, brought an extra treat: A 31 year old bottle of Bertani Amarone for us all to taste and it was delicious! But I’m getting ahead of myself.
We are undertaking a bit of an experiment here in sleepy little Harwich Port: I had the pleasure of visiting The Family Pantry here in Harwich. After a complete tour courtesy of Mary Anderson, the Executive Director, I felt compelled to contribute in some way. Knowing I was not going to donate alcoholic beverages to […]
The weather last night was threatening enough that I wasn’t sure I would make it to this event. Joselle and I, along with 18 other intrepid food and wine lovers, made our way to a wonderful wine dinner on Wednesday, January 26. At a cost of $65 per person and given the friendly nature of the group, the expertise of our wine rep Lori and the delicious creations of chef Jeff, this meal was clearly a bargain!
Okay, so probably not so secret anymore. Diane cuts hair at Jim’s Barber Shop in the plaza next to Cranberry Liquors. She kept coming in this summer and purchasing an odd assortment of ingredients — enough so I asked her exactly what she was doing with them. Diane explained herself by describing several friends-and-family events […]
