International Food Club, Orlando, Florida

2015-07-02 09.29.28 2015-07-02 09.29.46

Having lived in the Orlando area for many years, I wouldn’t have believed I didn’t know about this little gem. Maybe because it sits inside a small industrial area, or maybe it’s because I haven’t seen any advertisement. The way I found it was through word of mouth. I thought it only fair that I pass it on to my readers, and if you live here well, that’s better yet. This store carries items that you just can’t get at your regular grocery store.  Let me give you a peek at the inside.

The reason for all these pictures is because I wanted to give you an idea of the vast variety of international items they carry.

I found a jar of preserved lemons, authentic English clotted cream, and finally a jar of grape leaves. These are just a few items that I left with last Friday.

I was so excited to test out a recipe on Stuffed Grape Leaves accompanied by Egg-Lemon Sauce. Next, will be a Moroccan dish, Chicken Tagine, with my preserved lemons. The clotted cream to accompany some homemade English scones.

My Stuffed Grape Leaves with the Egg-Lemon Sauce and the Chicken Tagine were both delicious.  To get my recipes for these dishes just click the on the links below.

Having been in the food industry most of my life, and working with local restaurants, Harvill’s has been the top local produce provider in the Orlando area as far back as I can remember. Located at 8775 S. Orange Ave. Orlando, Florida, they’ve just recently opened a retail market to the public. I visited it today and it’s awesome. I took a few pictures to give you a peek at what’s in store for you.

Welcome Trader Joe’s


My last trip to San Francisco, when visiting my daughter, this is one of those stops I always make time for. Great organic items reasonably priced. All types of artisanal loaves of bread. Don’t even get me started on the huge variety of cheeses that won’t break the bank.

They offer their cheese in different sizes options, so it’s great for any budget. I love that! Now there is one 15 minutes from my house, how great is that?  Located at 131 N Orange Ave. Winter Park, Fl. 32789. I can tell you the opening of this little gem here was long overdue.
