Here at Celia's Gourmet Foods, still a small family run business, we are proud to bring you our "Mama Celia's" finest original and creative recipes. We use only the finest of ingredients sourced as local as possible. Tom's grandmother, "Mama Celia" always said to treat people with a smile and use the best ingredients possible. Even though she was deaf since childhood, she had a keen insight into life and a fine taste for the exquisite flavors the world has to offer. We miss you grandma!
Garlic tops the chart for being a must have in any kitchen. Infused with fresh garlic, this lean, crisp, fragrant oil enhances everything it comes in contact with. Use for cooking, saute oil, salad dressings, meats, fish and seafood.
Cilantro is a bright, pungent herb used in Asian, Mexican and Indian cooking. We've paired it with classic garlic and the result is one awesome olive oil you'll want to keep in the front of your pantry. Great for flavoring soups, added to salads, as a finishing drizzle to stews and vegetables, meat or seafood marinades. Drizzle on pizza, pasta’s, tacos, salsa or the magical component to a stir fry!
Clean crisp Garlic combined with the rich smoky Chipotle Pepper creates a culinary sensation that is perfect for stir fry's, sauté oil, Mexican dishes and anything for the BBQ. Add to mayonnaise for sandwich spreads, or add spicy intrigue to all vegetables.

IT'S IMPORTANT TO GIVE IT ALL YOU HAVE WHILE YOU HAVE THE CHANCE
My husband and I have been married for 11 years. He was born and raised in this community loving farming and ranching. I was raised in Spokane Valley and easily converted into a country girl. With generations of knowledge he started formulating his own animal feed for cows, chickens, and pigs. His feed became very well known throughout the community and our surrounding areas. We both had a dream of entrepreneurship, so we decided to create a store that could be a one stop shop for the community. Together with his knowledge of animals and my love for fashion, coffee and supporting local, we created the Golden Gem Mercantile. With our three boys, two dogs, cows, chickens and our horse we are going on our 5th year and enjoying every crazy minute of it.
