Costco (SF) kicks it up another notch.....

Xiao Yang | Jan 5, 200809:22 AM

I'm talking about your artisanal/gourmet/haute business here.

The SF Costco has a mini-display of new "gourmet" products near the front on the left which seems to grow ever time I'm there. Yesterday it had:

-- Pommery Moutarde de Meaux in 500g crocks
-- Perfect Pear Vinaigrette
-- Kozlowsi Farm Preserves
-- A combo pack of Hazelnut Oil and Grapeseed Oil (La Tourangelle, I think)
-- An $85 bottle of Balsamic Vinegar (didn't catch the name)
-- Something from Spain in a bottle (my attention was starting to wander)
-- Probably other stuff.

There was also (not in the same section) something I was tempted to pick up to run by my designated sweets-testers, a pakage of "gourmet" caramel-dipped Macadamia shortbread cookies from Hawaii. Any mavens want to testify?

The DIY catering/party planning section seems to be growing by leaps and bounds, too. I didn't bother to mentally inventory it, but there are going to be some fey Superbowl parties out there.
