Tryazon: Gourmet du Village Dipping Party #Review #GourmetDuVillage

IMAG2966

 

Tryazon has been very good to me and when I got to host the Gourmet du Village party…..I even did a happy dance. I love to cook and try new food companies and Gourmet du Village has a site where you can get happily lost looking at everything and your mind, plus tummy will be making a list of all the things you want to try. I spent one late evening looking around and it turned into me going to bed late because I just love everything Gourmet du Village has to offer. ¬†In my book, I call that doing research ūüôā .

You don’t need to host a party to enjoy Gourmet du Village’s products and kitchen essentials. You have items that come in all quantities and even a single person can easily purchase what they want and need, without having to purchase in bulk. I always keep that in mind as it’s usually just Hubby and I at home. Gourmet du Village satisfies your savory tooth by offering dips, mixes, cheese toppings, to potato chips that are not like what you buy at the usual supermarkets. Got a sweet tooth? They have chocolates to candies, dessert toppings and more! You will love the bakers they sent because I love not only using but collecting articles of this kind that tend to not only bake great foods, but they sort of find a way to bake memories into them too. I can pick-up a baker and clearly think back to a time I made such and such, for this event and what a great memory of the people that were there. It’s nice when things serve more than a purpose than cooking with them, so join me while I share a little of our Memorial Day weekend with you!

The Dips:

Let’s start with the dips. ¬†Each dip has a beautiful illustration of the kind of dip it holds. ¬†I love the pictures and artwork so much, I kept the front cover of each dip packet and decorated the back of my pantry and the cabinet that holds my baking dishes with them. ¬†I told you I collected bakers and the such! ¬†The dips are easy to make and most require dairy products like cream cheese, mayo, to sour cream. ¬†What is needed to complete the dip varies by type, like the artichoke one requires the vegetable in can form but what I like best, are what I call “off-road” uses. ¬†Using products beyond what they were made for and Gourmet du Village provides just for that to happen. ¬†They not only give you ideas but I was able to create¬†a stuffed scallop cake using the Gourmet du Village Crab mix. ¬†I simply took homemade country bread and used it as a base for my stuffing. ¬†I added Bay scallops and scooped them into gorgeous shells. ¬†It makes the plating look expensive but Bay scallops are those smaller ones that are also called “baby scallops”. ¬†They sell at a lower price point and you get the scallop craving satisfied and pay less. ¬†A little parsley and chive topping and you are done. ¬†It was so simple just using the entire seasoning packet from Gourmet du Village and it provided a full amount of flavor that kicks out any bay seasoning that comes out of a shaker any day! ¬†Flavorful and not salty is what I look for and that is what you get with these dips packet.

Retail Price Point: $3.99 each but you do save when you purchase more and they have trios to collections.

The Bakers:

Gourmet du Village has beautiful bakers that are perfect for Brie to any cheese that plays well with melting. ¬†You can use those grilled cheeses for added texture and flavor to even blends. ¬†The bakers I received are a beautiful Cranberry red and easy to wash and clean after use. ¬†I love adding these to my collection and the larger size does not limit me as much when it comes to serving and uses like my previous bakers. I got my hands on a beautifully aged Manchego cheese and you bet I added it to the Brie. ¬†These dishes allow your guests to add what they want and make it their own way and that is sure to please everyone on any day. ¬†The bakers also come with recipes, so it’s a great value. ¬†They are oven and dishwasher safe too!

Retail Price Point: $19.99 per baker and you have gorgeous colors to choose from.

The Chips:

Next, comes the chips for the dips. ¬†These babies are just simple russet potatoes and some salt. ¬†Simple foods make for the best eats! ¬†The chip has heft where it can withstand dipping without breaking. ¬†I found myself munching on these on their own and because they are not salty, the don’t interfere or ruin the flavor of anything you combine them with. ¬†As odd as it may sound, we also enjoyed the “real tater” taste. ¬†These are real slices and not just a mash of potatoes to resemble a chip. ¬†The crunch of the potato is just as you desire and they are not oily. ¬†Many of the kettle type chips are an oily mess that even if they are natural, who wants pools of oil? ¬†Gourmet du Village makes a chip that is not ordinary and very crave-able.

Retail Price Point: $4.00 per 5 ounce bag

This was not only an enjoyable an event but a time to spend with those we care. ¬†Friends enjoyed the food, Gourmet du Village made it simple to create and everyone was left with a full and satisfied tummy. ¬†Good memories and make your own by visiting Gourmet du Village and seeing what catches your eye. ¬†You won’t be disappointed! Also, save while you are there and that just makes the deal even sweeter.
