Celebrating the Season

If you have read Brillat-Savarin’s The Physiology of Taste, written in 1825 and astutely translated by MFK Fisher, you will fondly remember the Professor’s essay on hot chocolate. In it he said, “in order to make a truly exquisite chocolate, countless subtle equations must be solved, from which we benefit without even having been conscious of them.”

Gustavo is now creating hot chocolate drinks for the season. He is making them the right way. These are premium drinks with no mixes and no shortcuts.

Good News!

Our holiday catalogs are out! Actually, they've been here for a while, but we wanted to wait until folks had a chance to completely celebrate Thanksgiving before we announced it.

Announcement: Tea Cozy Book Club

Welcome to This House of Books inaugural book club! Every month in 2018 we’ll be featuring a member-owner’s new or recently published book – mostly fiction, with perhaps a few surprises. If there’s no member-owner new release, we’ll look for a great regional author to feature that month.
