You know that the Bay Area's cuisine is something to savor, and you're not the only one. Maricela Yee found the region's DIY fare so alluring that she decided to create Little Shop Artisan Box, so that everyone could easily taste the best bites from the Bay's small-batch food creators:
o $20 ($47 value) for an Island Love Gourmet Foodie Box
o Perfect Valentine's Day gift
o Pick up in Oakland
From Their Kitchens to Yours
Open your box of deliciousness and find a beautiful seashell lei and flowers arranged around local goodies. The mango chocolate-dipped orchid by Jade Chocolates is a visual marvel as well as a surprising bloom of flavors. Warm up with the sweet hibiscus taste of Oakland-made, organic Tangerine Ginger-Tisane tea by Sky Tea. With the Hawaiian Red Sea Salt Chocolate Bars, Barlovento Chocolates marry sea salt from Hawaii's active volcano, Haleakala, with Venezuelan chocolate for a fiery burst of sweetness.
Maricela says she was "inspired by the values behind and benefits of a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Box. ... Little Shop Artisan Box ... allows me to combine my two loves of food and sharing...." Publications like Diablo Magazine, Berkeleyside, and Women's Initiative can't get enough -- and we think you won't be able to, either.
