"Welcome to Shiso Fine and a taste of artisanal foods. I produce all of my handmade, canned goods during the growing season when the ingredients are at the peak of harvest. The fresh produce is hand-picked from local farm stands and the region's finest purveyors. Each jar is jammed packed with the freshest homemade goodness. Small-batches allow for creative and exciting new recipes. Come see what's on this year's menu..."
