A Treat for Date Lovers at the Davis Food Co-op


I stopped into the Davis Food Co-op this week and was delighted to discover that the store’s excellent olive bar now harbors an additional special treat: a selection of different varieties of California-harvested dates. They range from the gooey-creamy, super sweet Kadrawy to the earthier, subtly nutty Zahidi and the caramel-kissed Honey date, and it was a thrill to try each one and savor its unique characteristics. I also selected a number of olives (and cornichons) from the bar, which is one of the loveliest and best stocked I have seen in the region.
