A Special Delivery For Madame Mayor Sefatia Giambanco Romeo Theken




This morning I stopped by my dear friend, and  Madame Mayor Sefatia Giambanco Romeo Theken office with the special delivery…Welcome to your new home away from home/ office> Hope this basket of Traditional Sicilian Housewarming/New Office items help you settle in and make your new space feel like home!  Enjoy your gift basket my friend!



Madame Mayor Sefatia Giambanco Romeo Theken

Welcome To Your Nuova Work Casa

Enjoy these special Traditional Sicilian Housewarming treats, from us to you!

Bread    So you will never go hungry

Wine   So you will never go thirsty

Salt  Sprinkled around doors and windows, for good luck

Olive Oil   Which represents good health

A Candle   Symbolizing light

Wood   To bring peace, harmony and stability to your new home

Broom   To sweep away evil and ensure that the home/office stays clean of any negativity

Sugar   So your Mayor term will always have sweetness

Coin  So you can lead our beautiful City to dwell in good fortune

Honey  So you may always enjoy the sweetness of your Mayoral term

Mariposa  Simply because Sista Felicia believes every office/home needs some Mariposa!

Best Wishes
Sista Felicia  & Family

In addition to the traditional gift items, were a few of my personal favorites: a bottle of Sista Felicia Homemade Limoncello, San Marzano Tomatoes, a freshly baked Cherry Cheesecake and a special gift from  the Mariposa Company!  

It’s no secret to friends and family that I have an obsession for all things Mariposa, and love that the companies large product line makes gift giving throughout the year so simple!  The fact is I truly adore the beauty and functionality of the Mariposa Product line. It makes entertaining easy, elegant and  adds a special touch of flavor to anything served on Mariposa! From stemware, to servingware and everything inbetween my tables and home are adorned with Mariposa on a daily basis!  Last night while assembling the gift basket I was disappointed  in my efforts to purchases a “String of Pearls Sticky Note Holder”, for the mayor’s new office.   This handy decorative little note holder is one of the of my most used collection pieces, in the house!  Late last night I decided to  reached out to the Mariposa Company directly after my failed attempts yesterday to purchase  one of my most handy and beautiful Mariposa desktop pieces for my dear friend  and new City Mayor Sefatia. This morning just prior to my scheduled meeting with the Mayor, I learned from my contact at the Mariposa Company, that the “String of Pearls Sticky Note Desktop Holder” is classified as retired collection pieces, but the companies warehouse had one available and had been processed for me to pick up.  Love dealing with the Mariposa folks, as always, they totally came through on short notice. I personally would like to thank Laura Makin and the Mariposa Staff for their assistance this morning,and for the retired “String of Pearls “ collection piece they generously gifted to our City of Gloucester’s New Mayor Sefatia Giambanco  Romeo Theken!

Please know I’m grateful and that the Mayor is Thrilled to have your beautiful Gift on her desk…She Loved it!

Good Morning Gloucester


Duckworth Bistrot

Isn’t March supposed to be the month that "comes in like a lion"?

In Gloucester, however, and especially here at the store, October has fit that definition. 

There was no better indication that our town, with all of its tourist attractions, is back in the hands of the locals than the happy throng that gathered here last Wednesday evening for our first Wine Tasting of the fall.  We lost count, but we think we greeted about 60 old and new friends during the course of the two hour reception and tasting. Someone from Annisquam said the ebullient atmosphere reminded her of Chowder Day.

We’ll be continuing that tradition, but on Wednesdays, so check the Web site and our e-mails for invitations to upcoming Wednesday evening wines and times.

Autumn is the season of bounty and abundance, and you’ll find it’s in full swing here. The shelves are brimming with new merchandise that we’ve sourced from artisinal purveyors both in New England and across the country.  We’re stocking up on all the goods that people tell us they want both for gift giving and for their own pantries as the days get shorter and colder.

Cheese of the Month

Cabot Clothbound Cheddar Cheese

Voted "Best Cheese In North America" and

continuing a long line of fruitful culinary collaborations is this clothbound cheddar from a collective of Vermont’s finest cheesemakers. Cabot makes these 35 pound wheels from the pasteurized milk of Holstein cows and delivers them to the neighboring Cellars at Jasper Hill for aging and maturation. The end result of this promising partnership: a nutty, complex, and perfectly sharp cheddar that proves American cheesemaking has trully come of age. Pair it with a fruity Cabernet or a big Brown Ale.

Wine of the Month

Cono Sur – Colchagua Valley, Chile

It is appealing in its rich and deep bright red colour, and has a complex and developed nose that is governed by sweet wild fruit aromas, were notes of cherries and berries are enhanced by slight toasty hints. This Pinot definitely has a personality of its own. It’s tasteful, with soft tannins and an excellent structure. Cono Sur is a great option for stuffed pastries (with chicken or vegetables for example), and all sorts of quiches. Pinot Noir is one of the most versatile varieties there is. It can go well with fish, or with poultry, pork and lamb. Creamy sauces and spicy seasonings are also an excellent choice.

Thanksgiving Day Menu

We don’t want to say the word "Holiday" but Thanksgiving will be here before you know it. Thanksgiving is the time to gather with your friends and family, turn on some football, and enjoy your Thanksgiving meal. duckworth beach gourmet has a time savings menu so you can do just that – relax and enjoy.
