Since Christmas is now less than one month away, I thought I would give a unique gift/foodie idea in Columbus, Mississippi.
A couple of years ago, my friend, Carole, and I were walking down main street in Columbus when we dropped in a place called Le Gourmet’ Cheese & Gift Shoppe. I quickly was drawn to all the unique food-related gift items the store carried. I enjoyed looking around the store with Carole before running into one of the store owners. He gave us a tour of the large cheese display in the store, showcasing fine cheeses from all over the world.
I recently became re-acquainted with the individuals at Le Gourmet’ when I walked into the store to see if they would be willing to consider selling my cookbooks for me there. They said that they would and now have my cookbooks for sale in their store.
I began speaking with the ladies in the store, who told me that they are now opening a Bistro in their facility. The lunch menu looks absolutely delicious and the prices are very reasonable. The soups, salads, and sandwiches they serve are very unique and sound absolutely delicious. I can’t wait until I have a chance to go to lunch there with a friend.
So, the next time you are in town and either need a foodie gift or want a quiet place to enjoy lunch, stop by Le Gourmet’, 513 Main Street in Columbus, Mississippi. Their phone # is: 662-328-2021 and their hours are Mon 11-2, Tues through Fri 10-6, Saturday 10-5.
Please Note: Le Gourmet is not a sponsor of my site or paying me anything to write this up – I just think it’s a really cool store with some really nice people and want to make sure you know they are there! Be sure, however, to tell them that Cooking with Ellen sent you when you go get a homemade truffle from their counter display!
