Fresh food is hard to find now a days, I recently saw “Food Inc.” and my innocence to the meat grinding, mutated chicken developing, e coli ravaged world of modern day food was forever taken. But there are still pockets of hope in the United States for fresh unprocessed food. The Oakville Grocery in Napa Valley recently underwent renovation and will reopen on May 22, offering fresh food from local California farmers, artisans and purveyors.
Leading the way with a revamped menu is Chef Jason Rose. Simplicity and a focus on ingredients is the cornerstone to Oakville’s menu of seasonal prepared foods such as sandwiches, salads, breads, cheeses, charcuterie and baked goods. Along with that menu, Oakville will offer an espresso bar, a Three Twins Organic Ice Cream counter and an area dedicated to Napa wine.
The 130-year-old grocery is located in the heart of Napa Valley and is the oldest operating grocery store in California-opening in 1881.
