Savor the Flavor

The 7th Annual Savor Dallas, a celebration of wine, food, spirits and the arts, returns to downtown Dallas and the Arts District on Friday and Saturday March 18th and 19th.  As part of the weekend’s cornucopia of premium wines and spirits (over 400), and great chefs (over 60), you’ll also have a chance to meet the coolest salad guy around:  Tom Spicer, purveyor of Spiceman’s FM 1410 in East Dallas (pictured here with fruits of his labor, or veggies as the case may be).  Besides offering his particularly pampered produce to the finest chefs in the area, and folks who frequent his Fitzhugh Avenue garden shop, now you and I can enjoy Spiceman’s delicacies, without ever leaving home to retrieve them.  Thanks to the magical powers of the Internet, and an innovative new company called Artizone.com, we can order our basil, French tarragon, tomatoes, exotic mushrooms, carrots, cucumbers, celery, lettuce, and more (oh, my!), online from the comfort of our own home, or office.  Artizone.com will deliver the products the same day if the order is made by a certain time, or by the next day for sure if the order is placed late in the day.  To tout their great gourmet service in the Dallas area, Artizone.com will be at the Savor Dallas Arts District Wine Stroll on Friday March 18th, and the International Grand Tasting on Saturday March 19th, showing off their services and giving you a chance to taste the products they feature and meet the artisans who provide them.  Joining Spicer at the Grand Tasting are Greg Geerts from VonGeertsem Butcher Shoppe, and the folks from Jellies, Jams and Butters.  The Artizone.com website also features baked treats from La Duni Latin Kitchen and Baking, Scardello Artisan Cheeses, and Italian specialties from Flavors from Afar.  The company plans to expand the product offerings substantially over the next several months, and its delivery area.  Artizone.com is a great addition to the serious foodie’s arsenal.  And, what a convenience for anyone who is busy (that seems to be all of us).  Come meet Artizone.com and some of their featured purveyors at Savor Dallas, and register to win a $500 shopping credit on Artizone.com (three lucky winners will be awarded).  And, visit Artizone.com right now if you haven’t already.
