Cose migliori d'Italia - con sorriso! – The store's owners regularly small groups of food aficionados for a week at a time to visit and stay with their suppliers - typically award winning purveyors of very special foods or artisan kitchen, dining, and other craft goods. Every item in the store is premium - the highest quality of the line or singularly unique. And every item has a story - just ask.

Flavors is a step into the real adventure of the Italian experience - with all the heart and soul of a morning on a Tuscan farm, an afternoon with a Deruta master, and an evening with a Sienese chef.

Don't miss it!

Wonderful shopping experience! – The first time I went to this store, I was so surprised to see such a variety of unique food items from Italy - 14 lbs of dried San Marzano tomatoes in a tiny jar, smoked pasta, truffle salt, and more. The owners have done a superb job of purchasing interesting and delicious foods that I have never found elsewhere in the Metroplex. The foods are wonderful but the customer service is top-notch. During the holidays, I ordered a customized gift basket - it was sent the same day!

Great shopping for kitchen and entertaining-related items, wonderful owners – I "re-discovered" Flavors from Afar after they moved across the street in Snider Plaza. It has become one of my favorite shopping destinations. I can get great olive oil and vinegars as well as all sorts of kitchen and entertaining items, not to mention a cappucino if I want one. It's almost like going back to Italy! Nancy and Gary are delightful and very helpful. Don't miss this store.

Not your typical store! – Flavors From Afar continues to beat expectations. I recently stopped in and filled a jar with their rosemary infused olive oil. Gary recommended tossing it in pasta and you'll look like a gourmet cook! He was right. Just imagine being able to refill you olive oil just like the Italians do in their own village. The service is personal -- they even lead trips to Italy with their customers!! My favorite touch is the e-mail newsletter which is full of interesting tidbits and specials. The store is always changing so you have to read the newsletter and visit often!

Best foodie shop even for non-foodies – Unique finds at Flavors from Afar don't stop with the food items. Nancy and Gary have an incredible selection of Italian pottery, linens and hand milled soaps all at really great prices.

I have never gone in the store without buying Honey Ginger Teryaki sauce. Usually I buy 3-4 at a time to avoid a teryaki catastrophe later. In fact, I don't pass the store without stopping in. After I stock up on the teryaki I then move on to the Spunny... What is Spunny??? Spunny is actually only available in Texas at Flavors From Afar. It is bee keepers reserve pure clover honey that is the consistancy of butter. Put that on your biscuit and call it a day.

I should also mention Wine Glace. Sister, this is good stuff. One package makes two blender fulls...what a deal. You put half the glace and some Shiraz in the blender then mix then add ice then mix again. This is very much like a grown up slurpee. This also makes a great gift.

Great store and wonderful owners!! Nancy and Gary have a good thing going.

Great place to take your out-of-town "foodie" friends – Flavors from Afar is always on the must do list for our out-of-town foodie friends. Once they check it out, they always want to come back! No matter where our friends are from, they've never seen anything like it. The products are so fresh and interesting, and the customer service can't be beat (either can Gary's cappuccinos!!!) Where else can you "try before you buy" and find the one of a kind items Nancy and Gary so carefully select. The attention to detail that they have is practically unheard of in our fast paced and fast food world.

Excellent place to purchase gifts for all of the foodies and foodie wanna-be's on your list!
