Casual Gourmet in Glenwood, Maryland is my latest “Tasty Place”. I didn’t even know it existed until my sister started working there. They have the most delicious sandwiches and I am having a lot of fun slowly eating my way through their menu. They have many breads to choose from and they are always fresh. They use high quality meats and cheeses, and also feature Stonewall Kitchen and Robert Rothschild Farms spreads on some sandwiches which add great flavor. Casual Gourmet is both a delicious place to eat and a great place to shop for gourmet food items. The first time I went there I was surprised at how many items they carry. From coffees and teas, to jams and jellies, pastas and soups, you are sure to find something there that is interesting and tasty.
The next sandwich is the Onion Blossom Roast Beef. This sandwich has roast beef, cheddar cheese, romaine lettuce, and Robert Rothschild Farms’ onion blossom horseradish mayonnaise. For this sandwich I chose Country White bread. The roast beef pairs so well with the slight spicyness of the horseradish. I am pretty sure they were made for each other.
Now we come to the Mediterranean Vegetable Sandwich. This was a recommendation from my sister for my Mom and it comes with hummus, cucumbers, avocado, muenster cheese, organic spring mix greens, and mayonnaise. She chose the Ancient Grains Ciabatta Baguette and I think that’s one of the best breads they offer. This is a great vegetarian option! My mom did add turkey to hers which was delicious.
Casual Gourmet also offers some items for breakfast. They have croissants and muffins all baked in house every morning. Want something hot? They do sweet and savory crepes as well! I am currently addicted to iced lattes and they have the best. No matter how you like your coffee, hot, cold, or flavored they can make it for you.
Now on to the shopping. So many amazing gourmet food items! I couldn’t even begin to name everything they carry but here are just a few: Artison Olive Oils, and Balsamic Vinegars, Papparadelle’s Pastas, Ancora Coffees, Harney and Son Teas, Maggie and Mary Soups, Stonewall Kitchen, and Robert Rothschild Farms. There is also a big selection of kitchen gadgets and some cookware. It’s the perfect place to shop for the foodie in your life.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of Casual Gourmet! I will see you at the next Tasty Place!
