The Newport Mansions Wine And Food Festival 2021 will look a little different this year but, as always, promises to be the social event of the Fall season. Although many of the seminars are sold out and there is no Grand Tasting, there is an expanded restaurant program this year at some of Newport's hottest spots including Zelda's, Gurney's, The Grill at Forty1° North and Cara at The Chanler. Hope to see you there! For a full listing click here.

It's summertime! Finally, the pool is open, the masks are off and the warm weather product samples are rolling in. One of the first shipments we received here at TBF Worldwide International headquarters are these sips from Fishers Island Lemonade.
The products we sampled so far have been light, refreshing, unique and ... yes, spiked with vodka and whiskey. That's right, they are definitely Mommy and Daddy drinks but not overpoweringly strong, just perfect for a hot day by the pool or the cocktail hour as you fire up the grill. We also highly recommend the spiked ice pop they call Spirit Pops!
For recipes, to learn more or order directly from Fishers Island Lemonade in plenty of time for the Fourth Of July fireworks! Just click on the link and find your island. It's sure to be the hit of your next summer soiree.

The buttercream egg is, for us, the quintessential Easter treat and we are confident that we have discovered the best of the best. It's from Hilliards Chocolates. Enrobed in a delicious coating of milk chocolate it is creamy and not cloyingly sweet. It's also large which means you can enjoy it in several visits. The butter cream is not runny like in other chocolate eggs but more solid. And it melts on the tongue in such a satisfying way. Made in small batches, by hand, this really is tops. Try it. We guarantee you will not be disappointed.

You know what's coming up this month, don't you? Well, here at TBF we eat a LOT of chocolate. Someone has to taste all these samples! This is an interesting one that we really liked from Sugar Plum Chocolates: Strawberry Cheesecake. It even has little bits of crumb mixed in for a bit of crunch and a real cheesecake experience. Get this for your significant other and, promise, it will not be forgotten. Look for these in fine food stores or order online through the website, like we get everything these days!
We are absolutely loving the samples sent here to TBF HQ from Stash Tea. Delicious herbal teas perfect for afternoon tea on these cold (and often snowy) afternoons here in New England. We love the Meyer Lemon and Coconut Mango varieties, so far. Some of the decaf blends make a perfect, warming sip just before bed. We're also looking forward to some flavorful lattes, chais and cocktails. Look for Stash in your supermarkets or order online where you can also find all the cool recipes.

It was a very unconventional Christmas 2020, to say the least. Bound by the constraints of the pandemic protocol there were no family gatherings with exchanging little gifts and most of all no big family feast with lots of desserts and laughter that lasted for hours. What can one do except roll along with the punches that are 2020?
Since there was no need to cook and do my traditional weekend of baking the annual treats for everyone with, typically, all those trips to a crowded grocery store where let's just say not everyone is properly masked or keeping a safe distance I did something different. I picked up dinner at the local Chinese food place.
And it was a time to look through the front door windows dripping with humidity (it was warmer than Florida) and onto 2021, when we are all hoping for much better things, much better times and a renewed realization that we should be grateful and never take for granted all the little things in life. I am really looking forward to smelling those Springtime flowers!
