If humankind never learned to play with its food, it would never have learned to play with its ingredients, and the world would be one bereft bowl of gruel. Taste the fruits of culinary creativity with today's Groupon to Villa Gourmet, a specialty food store in Milford. Villa Gourmet excels at keeping area foodies stocked with worldly, high-end foodstuffs, custom gift baskets, and designer kitchen accessories. Fresh cuts of locally-grown organic beef pose temptingly alongside freshly netted ocean delicacies like wild-caught salmon, Chilean sea bass, soft-shelled crab, and hard-shelled Chthulhu during the fresh fish market on Fridays and Saturdays. You can also adorn the shop's designer kitchenware with a caucus of artisanal cheeses. Spoil a deserving friend or reward yourself for finishing your life-size Lego replica of Angkor Wat with gourmet gift baskets of specialty sweets and savories ($50-$200). Villa Gourmet's custom-stuffed picnic baskets ($25, or variable with customization) can be tailored into a sumptuous spread for an idyllic first date or an energy-packed carbo-load as you train to frolic your first marathon.
