So in case you were wondering, last Thursday's event for the Texas Hill Country Wine & Food Festival was rained out. It was a bummer for all involved. The organizers, vendors and volunteers all wanted the show to go on, but the weather just wasn't cooperating. Tomorrow night is the Umlauf Garden Party and, knock on wood, the weather is looking wonderful.
Let me take this opportunity to encourage those of you who come directly to the blog to take a look at the new Salt & Time website. It's still a work in progress, but it has a couple of important things on it. First is the lovely Salt & Time logo designed by the equally lovely Miss Natalie. I'm very lucky to have an in house (literally) designer. Second, it says "now available." That's right Salt & Time Salumi is now available to the greater Austin area. I'm still working on getting set up to sell at Farmers Markets, but in the mean time I am working on figuring out ways to make our products available to you. Currently, the wonderful Hotel St. Cecilia is carrying a variety of our Salume as part of their Charcuterie plate, and I'm hoping to have a few other outlets within the next few weeks. I am also trying to figure out the logistics of setting up a semi regular (weekly? monthly?) delivery day into Austin. Finally, I am working on setting up a couple of more events featuring our products. If you just absolutely can't wait to get your hands on some kick ass local salumi, email me and I'll try to work something out.
