These Alwadi products add Mediterranean Love to your Valentines cocktail, main courses or salads. Pomegranate Molasses is especially versatile: add it to Chicken, Pork, Beef, Duck, or Portabello Mushrooms, like you might use a Balsamic glaze. It’s also a great mixer. Rose Flower Water adds a romantic touch of rosiness to Vodka and to cakes and custards. Orange Blossom Water does the same, and it can really revive a Corpse Reviver #2.
Try this for Valentines Day:
The Flying Carpet
Shake ice, 2 parts Vodka , 1 part pomegranate syrup, 1 very generous dash of simple syrup or agave, and a squeeze of lime. Serve in gorgeous flute, topped with a splash of champagne, if you wish, and a generous splash of Rose Flower Water. A few pomegranate seeds will win you extra points.
Enjoy the Love!
Tuna Tartar on Frico
|Prep time||30 minutes|
|Cook time||10 minutes|
|Total time||40 minutes|
|Meal type||Appetizer, Starter|
- 1/2lb sushi grade tuna (chopped in a small dice)
- 1 drizzle Ratto's Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 drizzle Mirin
- 1 dash Piment d' Espelette
- 1 dash salt & pepper
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmiagiano Reggiano

|Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.|
|Gently toss your tuna, pimente d'Espelette, EVOO, Mirin, S & P. Cover and refrigerate immediately.|
|Make small piles of grated Parmiagiano-Reggiano on a silicone mat-lined baking sheet, leaving about two inches between piles.|
|Bake Frico for about 10 minutes until golden. Remove from heat.|
|Let cool for 30 seconds and pull off baking sheet. You can shape them into cups, tubes, or just leave them flat.|
|To serve, put a spoonful of tuna on each Frico. Garnish with parsley or micro greens f you wish.|

Monthly Micro-granting Sunday Dinner Series Funds Local Art
Announcing a new dinner series called Oakland Stock. Join us for the first micro-granting meal Sunday, February 10th 2013, hosted by local artist/chef (and Ratto’s window dresser and all around helper) Lexa Walsh. This month Ratto’s lends its historic charm to this international Sunday Soup Series.
Here’s how it works: You pay $10 to enjoy a fantastic home cooked meal. Up to 10 artists will pitch their projects while you dine. At the end of the meal you vote, the ballots are cast and counted—winner takes all! Dinners and Winners will be posted on the Oakland Stock site and artists return the following month to present on their progress. Why? Because you have the power to decide what cultural work is important, and here’s a chance to share a meal, discuss artists’ projects, and elect or be a winner of the dinner’s proceeds.
When: Sunday, February 10, 6pm-9pm
Where: Here at Ratto’s Market & Deli
Menu: Soup, of course! Salad & bread will accompany the meal.
Chef + Host: Lexa Walsh
Who’s Invited: Soup lovers, artists and those interested in supporting them.
PLEASE RSVP by emailing email@example.com
Support for Oakland Stock is provided by Southern Exposure’s Alternative Exposure Grant Program.
Wanna get your English on? Try this tangy, crunchy pickle. It is an excellent contrast to a rich, creamy blue cheese or cheddar. Perfect for a late night sandwich snack, to be washed down with a good beer, or as an accompaniment on a cheese platter. Alternately, add it to a curry for a little shazam. Yum!

Scoop up some dried beans, legumes & specialty salts from our bulk foods section to combine with your market purchases. While you’re at it, get some imported grating cheeses, good olive oil and an extra special bottle of vinegar (we have lots) to enhance your winter cuisine. After lunch, grab a carefully crafted cappuccino next door at Caffe 817, and check out the Pop Up Hood shops along Ninth St. for vintage, one-of-a-kind finds to locally-made arts, crafts & jewelry.
