There used to be a Taste Unlimited gourmet shops in my town of Great Bridge, and they moved it closer to the highway a few years ago. I was pretty ticked. But the place is so awesome that I still make the 15 minute drive to eat lunch, and get all their gourmet goodies. I specially like their chicken salad, pastries, potato salad..... oopss I better stop there because I could go on an on. The ambiance of their stores is very welcoming and unique.
Taste Unlimited gourmet shops was started in 1973 by Peter Coe a Yankee by birth, Southerner by choice (and a cosmopolitan by inclination) - that is his description on his website . Today they have 6 stores in Hampton Roads. I have visited the ones in Norfolk, Virginia Beach and the one in my neck of the woods in Chesapeake. They all keep their theme and high standards.
When I am looking for a unique gift, I know that I can find there what can not be found elsewhere in Hampton Roads. One year I bought about 30 boxes of uniques cookies and gave them as gifts to my relatives in Colombia. They loved them. I have also used their knowledge in buying wine as gifts. I know very little about wine. (For my daughter's sweet 16, I was asked to buy white wine, and I bought white zinfandel.) All you have to do is ask, and the expert will help you. And almost last but not least great Gift baskets. No effort presents.
There are monthly wine tastings at their Ghent, Newport News and Oceanfront stores, and Peter Cole give cooking lessons on other days at the Oceanfront location. All the pictures on this blog are from the Oceanfront store. .
