The Local Epicurean
At The Local Epicurean, bundles of small-batch dried pasta noodles cover the shelves and tables, each with a different flavor that creates a stoplight spectrum of red, yellow, and green hues. Owner Ryan Raredon, who has been profiled in the Grand Rapids Press, began pasta making as a hobby, before success at selling his noodles and seasonings in farmers’ markets inspired him to open his own store, where a panoply of handmade herb-infused sundries now resides. All of his organic pasta are infused with local Michigan produce to create orange-bell pepper or meyer lemon and dill varieties. Pesto and tomato sauces, forged from globe basil, sun-dried tomatoes, and arugula, coat noodles, and infused salt blends and organic butters make bread more delicious and easier to fit through narrow dollhouse doorways.
