Welcome to Our Blog!
Every month I will be sharing with you highlights of our gift baskets and recipes that use the products found in our gift baskets. The suppliers of the products found in all of Holbrook Cottage’s gift baskets are very passionate about the flavors and ingredients they use to create these amazing products. So are we! All are made in small batches. You will love every product. Certainly not the ordinary. Our team has tasted every single one before it is included in our collection of gourmet gifts.
Who are we? Holbrook Cottage is a retail store and market that just celebrated its 21½ years birthday. Where are we located? In the beautiful, quaint village of Briarcliff Manor 43-minute train ride north of New York City. Where do we source most of our products? First, we look for the delicious and unusual in the greater New York area. Brooklyn, Hudson Valley and Harlem are filled with creative small batch producers. We will introduce you to many over the next year but today I want to take you on a new taste experience found in South of the Border Gourmet Gift Basket that features Latin flavors. So perfect to give as a Thank you gift or Birthday Gift.
The Cuisines of Central America, Mexico and Cuba are the fastest growing category in the country. Food seasoned with jalapeno, habanero and chipotle peppers are so popular among non-Hispanic consumers as well as Hispanics. Want to win a Millennial’s heart? Send a South of the Border Gift Basket as a Birthday Gift, Thank you Gift or House Warming Gift.
One of our favorite products in this gift basket is the Mango Habanero Jam which is fabulous combined with brie or cheddar. Or just spread it on a bagel. YUM! One more product that flies off the shelf is Spicy Corn Relish Use as scrumptious addition to arugula salad or chips and salsa. Entertaining has never been easier!
