AJ’s Fine Foods, the best the Valley has to offer
Having spent a better part of the last 20 years travelling around the world, moving is nothing new to this writer who is permanently spoiled by amazing international food. Being a fairly new transplant to the Phoenix area, it was a high priority to find not only the best deals, but also the best variety of international foods and beverages that the Phoenix area has to offer.
One such place is AJ’s, a Bashas’ owned company. AJ’s Fine Foods offers many wonderful options. They opened in 1985 with one of the very first gourmet markets in Arizona. Don’t let some of the higher-end food prices deter you from coming in to this finely presented store and discover what it has to offer. To anyone who delights in cooking, it is simply an experience just to walk in to this visually stimulating market.
Limoncello is present in an abundance of choices that are simply breathtaking and the pricing highly competitive.
Fear not for a vast selection of Balsamic Vinegar and Pesto Sauce ….there is a plethora of choices, enough to make you cry out with happiness!
Hard to find items are not an issue for this store; they seem to have a wonderful variety of international spices, foods and wines which are perfect at this time of year when many of us are trying to make food from around the world to please our friends and families!
Keep AJ’s in mind this holiday season as you prepare meals for your families. You may be surprised at what you can find!
Happy Holidays from Gourmet Cooking on a Dime!
