 MARCH. ISSUE 55. 2017
Marcels Culinary Experience
 
So many reasons to sneak into Marcel's in March! Come see our new layout - we have pulled a collection of specialty food to the front (including the refrigerator), making it easier to grab-and-go, created a bake shop in the back, and we are busy stocking the store with tons of fabulous new products, including fresh new Juliska, gorgeous and gleaming Mary Jurek, and a super-fun new line of sea salt and sugar blends from Beautiful Briny Sea. To sweeten the pot, all purchases earn you double M Rewards loyalty points throughout the month!
 
Dana and Anne are dreaming up a table for the 6th annual Celebration of Tables, benefitting the Glen Ellyn Food Pantry. Pop in to Marcel's for your tickets.
 
If you are planning a "stay-cation" for Spring Break, check out our multi-day Kid's Camps
 
Please extend a very warm welcome to our newest retail associate, Andrea Draths!

NEW COLLECTIONS
 
This collection takes you to the great outdoors where durability meets design. Mix and match the vibrant Oceanica with the Indigo Splatter and Spin melamine plates to add a bit of flair to your al fresco entertaining. 
Add a little adventure to your table with the patterns in the Wanderlust collection:
Indigo Sitio Stripe mixes beautifully with the cobalt blue Iberian Journey pieces, inspired by the painted tiles of the Portuguese coast.
 
Between layers of rich Acacia wood are stripes of hand-marbled resin; a juxtaposition of rustic and refined artisanal materials. Each piece is shaped by hand and crafted into unique entertaining pieces.
 
 
Founded in 1997 by award winning jewelry and watch artisan Mary Jurek, the company juxtaposes hand-hammered stainless steel with a soft, organic flare, creating an “old world meets modern day” style that appeals to luxury lifestyle enthusiasts everywhere.  We just got a sizeable new shipment into the store - including the stunning Helyx and Arroyo collections. Treat yourself or make it your next gift - it is a beautiful choice for weddings and will last a lifetime.
 
 
 
You must get your hands on these magically whimsical salt and sugar blends from Beautiful Briny Sea! Each tin is hand-blended with artisanal ingredients including pure sea salts, herbs, foraged mushrooms and organic spices.
Arriving any day now!
 
  
 
 
Put a smile on your face with Mr. Gigglepants (hibiscus sugar), Friends Forever (honey + pure ocean salt) and Magic Unicorn (savory salt featuring smoked paprika). Many more blends in-store!

FEATURED CLASSES & CAMPS
Gluten-Free Classes
 
Gluten is a specific type of protein, but one you won't find in meat or vegetables. Instead gluten is found in wheat, rye, and barley. Going gluten-free may mean avoiding grains but it doesn't have to mean expensive gluten free alternatives or diet deprivation. Along with wine, potatoes, fruits, and vegetables, the list of delicious foods that are safe to enjoy on a gluten free diet is long and satisfying. Here are a few gluten-free classes we are featuring in March!

Sure, cooking utilizes measuring cups and spoons, whisks and spatulas but what to use for the big jobs? Spring break camp focuses on the kitchen essentials designed to help get the big jobs done in the kitchen to ensure big results every time: Waffle Iron, Stand Mixer & Skillets!

With TV shows like Master Chef Jr., it's no wonder more kids are interested in the culinary arts. Cooking teaches about where their meals come from and incorporates school subjects like math and chemistry. The kitchen also has its own set of tools designed to help take the skills of a budding young chef to the next level!
