• Jeni In The Jungle

    Last week we were honored to welcome Jeni Britton Bauer from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams to our Fairfield store! Jeni took 10 lucky people on a flavor tour around the store and showed the group some of her favorite products that you can only get right here at the Jungle. While showing them around, she grabbed some items for her class following the tour, but she couldn’t help but fill her cart with some delicious chocolates,

  • The Cooking School – September and Beyond, Let’s Get Cooking!

    It’s already time to think about summer winding down as the colorful and cool days of fall arrive.

    Dave Schmerr’s wine tastings had a breakout favorite with Wine and Small Bites. It was so well received that we now offer two different dates and two different menus for you to enjoy this fall. Our students raved about the delicious small bites of food with wines paired specifically to them. Look for these classes with The Tasting Room logo.

  • Cooking School: A Sweet and Crunchy Treat

    ​The Cooking School staff at Jungle Jim’s International Market has had cinnamon on the brain lately. We have been enjoying a highly fragrant and delicious tea from Harney & Sons Fine Teas called Hot Cinnamon Sunset. You can find this wonderful tea near Sherwood Forest in the International Department. We also love the Backroad Country Old Fashioned Cinnamon Twists. To continue the cinnamon obsession, we made a batch of Cinnamon Candy Popcorn. It’s a fun and easy snack to make and it’s a pretty red color just right for a Valentine’s Day gift.  Read article

    cheesy, warm sandwiches and Baked Mini Ham and Swiss Sandwiches come very close. The only ingredient missing is a mother’s love! The cheese and ham are both from Boar’s Head:  Gold Swiss and Sweet Slice Ham. Read article
  • Italian Pecorino and Prosciutto Bread

How about a nice warm bowl of soup and the tantalizing aroma of freshly baked bread. As the Cooking School staff at Jungle Jim’s International Market begins cooking in 2015, we thought we would offer this flavorful Italian Pecorino and Prosciutto Bread recipe as a tasty accompaniment to hearty soup or stew.
