Fantastic Fathers

Spoil daddy dearest rotten this year with interesting and unique versions of the standards. We love shopping for the guys so our men's department is always well-stocked with books, home goods, neckwear, personal accessories and even some cool tools. From the perfect cocktail hour to grilling in style, here are a few of our picks for Father's Day 2017.

We Trovesters appreciate a well-appointed cocktail hour so we line our shelves with tons of appropriate accessories in store. Izola consistently provides elegant goods, like a gorgeous matte gold flask that mom will envy to chic, unbreakable (!!!) glasses for dad's favorite concoction. 

Take Pop's grilling game to the next level with light up tools so he can fire up the coals any time. Package these slick beauties with a tasty new hot sauce recipe (+ all the necessary ingredients) for a fun gift you can enjoy together. We're quite partial to this Habanero Peach Hot Sauce recipe, courtesy of The Peach Truck. *Did you happen to catch them as they rolled into Northeast Indiana? If not, hop on their mailing list so you don't miss out next year.

A Brazilian Twist

We freely admit we have a girl crush on food babe, Cynthia Presser. And with all this talk about Rio these days, the Brazilian chef has been on our mind. We met Cynthia (pronounced Seen-Cha) when she was living in Fort Wayne. She delighted us with her sparkling personality and her talent and flair in the kitchen. Now, she and her family live in Tampa, Florida and she regularly appears on the Today Show as their Brazilian cooking expert.

Cynthia's cook book, Cooking with a Brazilian Twist, is a compilation of her 100 best recipes. The recipes are fantastic and easy to follow and the book itself if full of vibrant images and is oh-so coffee-table worthy! Cynthia's philosophy is that cooking should be fun and through her website, book, events and social media accounts, she shares that signature Brazilian flair of hers that we adore.

While we can't just hop on a flight to exotic locales whenever we want, we can dish up some tasty global fare. Which is perhaps the next best thing to traveling...

Food, Glorious Food!

Food is something we take quite seriously. We're always in search of our next great meal, whether at a far flung restaurant, a local joint or in our own homes. In our world travels, we get to taste so many wonderful, sometimes unusual, things. But when we do stay put (it's never for that long), we like to give our kitchens a sense of purpose. When we cook, we cook.

To that point, we've personally amassed huge cookbook collections and now a few of the finest we've sourced lately have landed at The Trove, waiting to be lovingly splattered with culinary shrapnel in your kitchen. Check out our latest appetizing arrivals, cookbooks and ingredients that will elevate your next home cooked meal to 5 star status.
