It’s rainy and cold. It’s sunny and hot. The Packers look depleted, and the Bears look undefeated. Welcome to the September circus! There’s a lot going on, with certainties changing faster than the weatherman’s wardrobe. We have some expert prognosticators here to help you get through the next couple of weeks with your head above water and food costs in line. So take a read and give us a call for the best picks to sure-up every menu.
Whether you want to take advantage of the beautiful weekend and grill outside or are looking for something toothsome and filling to fight away the cold, damp weather, Swordfish is a terrific option to offer for the rest of September. The East Coast US and Canadian fisheries are brimming with beautiful high-quality fish. At the same time, South America is flush with big, meaty marker-sized beauts. You can’t go wrong with Swordfish, as the next couple of weeks will see some of the best quality, best-priced offerings.
Plentiful, bounteous, abundant - words you rarely hear attached to the Snapper species, but, finally, we can promote the highly sought-after Florida fish. We have copious quantities of American Red and Yellowtail Snappers fresh off the East Coast docks. We have all sizes available, from plate-sized whole fish to perfectly cut portions. The cornucopia may not last forever, but this week when topsy turvy is the game, we have you covered.
Looking for a nice fall offering that’s sweet as lobster but a fraction of the cost? Don’t forget about East Coast Monkfish. Regarded as one of the ugliest fish in the ocean, what Monkfish lack in beauty they make up for in flavor. Their firm tail meats cook up rich and buttery, very similar to lobster meat, with a delightfully clean finish. Sometimes you’ve gotta turn the world over to make it make sense - it’s a good thing we always have an ocean of solutions.

September isn’t only for sweets, Oktoberfest is in full swing. We are celebrating Oktoberfest with Chef Martin's locally made Weisswurst sausages, the official sausage of Oktoberfest in Munich. Weisswurst consists of pork, and parsley and is mild in flavor with a hint of green onions and lemon. Chef Martin's also has a variety of sausages for football game day celebrations.
For flavors of the season, look to Fabrique Delices Chicken Liver Truffle Mousse. Perfect for charcuterie boards and sandwiches, Chicken Liver Truffle Mousse is creamy and rich and comes in a ready-to-serve dish. If you need cheese to serve it with, might we recommend Cropwell Bishop Stilton. This cheese is crafted carefully by hand and features a rich tangy flavor and a velvety-soft texture. Both the Chicken Liver Truffle Mousse and Cropwell Bishop Stilton can be served with crisp fruit, walnuts or a fresh loaf of bread.
