White Anchovies!

White Anchovies....$21.99 / lb
White Anchovies from Italy
(sold by the pound in the deli)
White Anchovies are one of those items that customers get upset when we run out of them at the store. We have built a strong following for these little fish. They are marinaded in sunflower oil, wine vinegar, and salt. They are more delicate and less salty than "canned" anchovies. They can be used in a variety of ways: on top of spinach salads, caesar salads, chopped into olive tapenade, pasta salads, or just with good french bread and olives and a glass of crisp white like La Croix Gratiot Picpoul de Pinet wine. They are delicious!

Appetizer made easy....

Take a Tribeca French Baguette (available in our freezer) -- slice and toast it
Spread on the  Artichoke and Caper Spread (available in jars in our store)
Top with White Anchovies (sold bulk in our deli case)
A little black pepper on top 

Makes a quick and easy appetizer or snack

Serve with Panarroz GSM from Spain or a nice Albarino like Bouza de Carril Albariño Rias Baixas
