"I am always seeking new and exciting products for our customers. I'm on a Gluten Free diet right now and it's been a challenge to find great ingredients. I try to source products that are only available to chefs and high-end restaurants because I want people to have the best ingredients to cook with at home."
Tastings Gourmet Market is a one of a kind Old World European-style shop specializing in artisanal, farmstead and imported cheeses, handmade French chocolates, authentic French croissants, baguettes and breads, as well as many gourmet pantry items. Tastings also offers the finest caviar (special order), charcuterie and pâtés served to order. There isn't anything that they can't source for you.
The daily menu includes freshly made soups, leafy salads, grain salads, quiche, foccacia, flatbreads, and sandwiches featuring many of the specialty products they sell on the floor. All of the vinaigrettes are made in-house as well. They are continuously adding to our menu and offer many gluten-free options.
Tastings is owned by Stacey Adams; a professional chef and culinary instructor. She opened Tastings Gourmet Market in 2006 when she simply couldn't find the type of products that she fell in love with while traveling through Italy, France, Greece, Spain and Eastern Europe. The experience of walking into an Old World-style European market-the pungent odors of dried salumis hanging from the ceiling, perfectly aged cheeses cut to order, regional delicacies that define cultures and traditions-- are unforgettable memories that she seeks to recreate at Tastings.
With a Finance degree from Texas A&M University, Stacey started a marketing research firm out of college focusing on measuring customer satisfaction for her clients and spent many years in corporate finance with Merrill Lynch and Morgan Stanley.
With her service philosophy as the cornerstone of the store, there is nothing that they won't do for their customers. The staff at Tastings is committed to providing you the warm and friendly customer service you would experience in any local trattoria or café right here in Annapolis.
