Since the holidays are around the corner, locals should visit a unique gourmet food and wine shop located on Miami Beach that opened recently, Normandy Gourmandy (named for the Miami Beach neighborhood it’s located in.) Shop owners are husband and wife team Sandy Sanchez and Benoit Rablat, they also own two very popular neighborhood restaurants; Silverlake Bistro & La Fresa Francesa, where Benoit is Executive Chef.
Normandy Gourmandy is an amazing treasure trove of unique gifts and hard-to-find wines. Benoit, who grew up in Paris, envisioned a store much like the ones on every other corner there, with affordable gourmet products, great wines, and one-of-a-kind gifts. Both he and Sandy have extensive wine knowledge and training and are well-equipped to advise on every price range and varietal for those selecting wines for holiday gifting.
With individual products both perishable (imported cheeses, charcuterie, meats, pate, etc.), great gifts in every budget for everyone from the culinary enthusiast like unique cutting boards and wine charms, pet lovers – doggie bowls, gourmet pet treats, to unique candles, totes, and more, one can spend plenty of time in-store or online perusing options.
For those who want to splurge and send a gift that goes way beyond the traditional fruit or gourmet basket, Normandy Gourmandy is heaven on earth. Come in and select the items you’d like (with assistance from the store’s knowledgeable staff) or select one of the themed baskets Sandy has designed – ranging from For the Truffle Lover, Charcuterie Creator to the Francophile – a basket filled with goodies like marron glace, exquisite French chocolate, a bottle of burgundy and much more. Make Hanukkah ‘Eight Nights of Normandy Gourmandy’ with specially selected candies, kosher wines and gifts to celebrate the Festival of Lights.
Normandy Gourmandy Market is more than just a store; it’s a holiday wonderland filled with one-of-a-kind, handpicked treasures that cater to all tastes and preferences. With its extensive range of offerings, it’s a one-stop shop for festive gifting needs. And if you still can’t decide what to get that special someone, just purchase a gift card and let them shop for themselves.
