Savor Specialty Foods opens in Ballard

Where else can you find Iberico ham, carefully selected wines, Fran's chocolates, and local cheeses--all in charming spot? Husband-wife team Steve Klemaier and Holly McLean opened the doors today to Savor Specialty Foods in Ballard--a store every passionate food lover needs to check out.

At Savor Specialty Foods, you'll find cured meats from Boccalone (I've tasted their brown sugar/fennel salame--highly recommended!), pickles made by Belltown's Boat Street Café, a variety of oils and vinegars, and gourmet salts from Saltworks and Secret Stash.

Looking for the perfect holiday gift? They also stock Riedel and Speigelau glasses, cookbooks, linens, and houseware. (And if the shopping's got you feeling peckish, enjoy a bowl of their soup and a slice of quiche in the café.)
