ON RETOURNE!

22 days, 2 countries, 3 high speed trains, 5 cities, approximately two dozen liters of natural wine & one fierce Mediterranean sunburn later, and the Flotsam+Fork European Sourcing Sabbatical of 2017 is officially over. 

It'd be lying to say we're totally happy to be back in states—but we discovered some exceptional new products, and we're excited to share our findings over the coming weeks and months. 

In the meantime, the shop is back online and F+F is once again shipping orders. Please take a look at some of our fav memories from the trip and stay tuned for new product arrivals!

La Buvette is absolutely the best place in the world to drink wine right now & please do not even try to convince us otherwise.

Nice Straw Baskets

After approximately 10 hours à la plage, we fortuitously stumbled upon the straw basket queen of Nice. A truly special retailer hidden among the knick-knack and postcard dealers.

E.Dehillerin Paris

No trip to Paris is complete without a pilgrimage to the temple of kitchenwares, E.Dehillerin.

De Rat

If you ever find yourself in Amsterdam on an unseasonably warm day, we highly recommend enjoying a few radlers at Cafe Brecht.

We are excited to share a Find from Afar from Bette Kroening, of Bette's Oceanview Diner in Berkeley. As anyone who has spent much time in the San Francisco Bay Area will tell you, Bette's Diner has been turning out some of the best pancakes and breakfast fare in East Bay for over 30 years.
Bette picked up this beautifully glazed terrine at a pottery factory outside of Cannes in France. Though she has yet to use it, it reminds her of "the most delicious terrine" she had on that trip, made by the chef Delphine Zampetti, owner and chef of CheZaline in Paris. We're working on getting her terrine recipe, until then, give Bette's buttermilk pancake recipe a try, or if you're in the Bay Area, stop in for the real thing.

Sometimes the packaging is as good as what's inside:
