Kym and Ted Smirnoff reckon they have the best job in the world - they get to sample all the delicious Mornington Peninsula goodies before they decide to stock them.  Their business, Peninsula Gourmet Emporium is an Aladdin's cave of delights.  Locally made chutneys, jams and relishes perch alongside biscuits, lollipops and (of course) lots of  lots of  local wine.  Along with all the accoutrements needed to indulge; pate knives, cheese boards and more.

And the customers loved picking the fruit themselves.  Mind you, they were only .05cents
