Take out has never looked so good! Peasant Cookery, a popular bistro in Winnipeg’s stylish Exchange District, has launched Peasant Pantry – a convenient online store. The ‘Pantry’ store offers some of the essential fresh ingredients that make the restaurant a perennial favourite. There are produce and ‘protein’ packs, as well as spices and seasonings to enhance your home-cooked recipes. There’s also house cured sausages, homemade pickled vegetables, shaved meats, and other food packages that put a classy spin on delivery or takeaway dining.
Pictured above is the Wine and Dine package. Included was a generous selection of in-house cured sausages, pickled green beans and cucumbers, a rich mousse and freshly made pate, a fresh, crusty baguette, and a bottle of absolutely lovely, fruity pinot noir (The Crusher). An assortment of four cheeses rounded out the meal: Iberico, Benedictine Blue, Oka Raclette, and a delectably runny Taleggio. Mustard and preserves were also included.
The items were all individually packaged — convenient for transport and quick transfer to the fridge, or directly to a charcuterie board. (We often get inquiries about the attractive handcrafted board picture above — check out Stinson Studios for a closer look!)
We tend to eat with gusto, and there was more than enough food to make for a satisfying meal for two. At $55 (CDN) with wine included, we found the package to be very reasonably priced. The experience was certainly a bright spot in these strange times – an elegant little escape. Well done, Peasant Cookery and Peasant Pantry!
