I have been shopping with Gilt for a while. They have some great (and some not so great) deals on fashion and home goods. They used to be a bit too pricey all the time, however, they have lowered prices and now have designers making (sometimes less quality) goods right for them. You need to be smart in what you buy and do your research to make sure you’re really getting a good deal, but I have found some EXCELLENT items.
I was excited when they announced a new division: Gilt Taste. It’s goal was to focus on foodie type items. It reminds me of an upscale food market. I love browsing through it, but I can’t say that many things have caught my eye to say “I need to buy this now!” Impulse shopping for food items is not something I do in the same way that I do for, say, shoes. (I will definitely be shopping there for my next dinner party, however!) But right in the beginning, one thing caught my eye. I didn’t say anything, so imagine my surprise when Mike said he had a surprise for me and placed in my hand, this…
Artichokes and Truffles sauce! Two of my very favorite things, in one can.
We decided to make a scampi type dish with is with fresh pasta, scallops, and shrimp.
It was delicious! I was hoping for a bit more pop of truffle flavor, but it was delicious and such an easy way to make a gourmet style meal.
