Everyone knows that my favorite Saturday outing is to go to Quepos to the Farmers Fair! Well now it has gotten even more fun because we discovered the delightful offerings of Quincy and his booth of homemade pickles, specialty cheeses, Lasagna and Quiche that he makes himself homemade from scratch! And let me tell you this man can cook! He is a delightful soul from Canada but he has been here in Costa Rica for many years. His lovely personality as he passes out a taste test of each of his cheese blends for you to try puts a smile on your face and a strong desire to order one of each. Our first take home for dinner try was his Meat in tomato sauce Lasagna and it was so good that we ordered both the Chicken and the special Broccoli/Spinach Lasagna the next time we went. His wife also cooks up many different kinds of bread for you to select from.
Green Olive, Dried Tomato
and Basil Cheese
12000 colones per kilo
Cheese 15000 colones per kilo
Now I guess I should also mention that pickles are not the easiest thing to come by in this lovely country of Costa Rica, so when we saw that big beautiful jar of perfectly sliced cucumbers floating in their delicious juice we were ready to dig in! And if you have shopped for cheese here you also know that it is a little bit pricey unless it is their farmers cheese which is not very flavorful. Many times we have looked at cheese in the grocery store or deli but when it is sometimes $10.00 for only a 1/4 lb we put it back and do without. I think most of the cheeses are imported which makes them more expensive than local products. Quincy offers his delicious cheeses at only 12000 colones per kilo. A kilo = 2.2 lbs so if you got a 1/4 lb of cheese it would be 1320 colones or $2.62!
THANKS QUINCY WE APPRECIATE YOUR COOKING!
Another favorite of mine is the Mennonites that make the most delicious granola! I love it for breakfast on my fruit parfait which is plain yogurt sweetened with honey and sliced fruit of
your choice layered in a glass with the crunchy granola. This tasty concoction was shared with me on a past vacation trip by my friend Rhonda and I have been hooked on them ever since. They are extra tasty here in Costa Rica because the fruits are so juicy and sweet! They also offer wonderful breads, yeast rolls, pies, cookies and jellies at this booth so you will want to be sure and stop by.
I hope you enjoyed our trip to the Farmer's Fair! Talking about all of this food has made me hungry!
hmmm. . . I think I may have some of Quincy's lasagna in the fridge.....
