TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Jeff’s Famous Jerky

Thu, 06 Apr 2017 17:32:23 +0000

We’ve had Top Pick jerkys before, but they are few and far between. Even small-batch artisan brands can be too tough for us, and/or leave remnants of gristle. Not so with Jeff’s Famous Jerky. Each variety we tried was melt-in-your-mouth tender, with exquisite flavor. When you can say jerky has exquisite flavor, you know you’ve […]

TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Mochidoki, Ice Cream-Stuffed Mochi

Sat, 31 Dec 2016 13:58:01 +0000

Like ice cream? Get ready for a [relatively] new variation: ice cream mochi (MO-chee). Mochidoki is a delightful ice cream treat—a sophisticated re-envisioning of a classic Japanese sweet made from rice dough: a dough of pounded, glutinous (but gluten-free) sweet rice flour that is steamed and kneaded until it becomes delightfully chewy and supple, with […]

TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Aldi For Christmas Entertaining

Sat, 03 Dec 2016 13:34:51 +0000

Recently, we went to our neighborhood specialty food store to buy appetizers for a get together with wine. Sure, the cheeses we picked were $25 a pound; our favorite crackers from La Panzanella and Raincoast Crisps aren’t inexpensive. And we do tend to buy too much. But when the cashier said, “$146.76 please,” we were […]

TOP PICK OF THE WEEK: Finally Ginger, Artisanal Ginger Cookies

Cookies freshly-baked just for us, because they’re baked to order. Cookies with sugar and spice and everything nice. With three […]

TIP OF THE DAY: Epicurean Butter & Holiday Compound Butters

Thu, 03 Nov 2016 12:59:20 +0000

Sophisticated cooks know how to make magic with compound butters. Many casual cooks discovered the joy of strawberry butter at restaurant brunches, and learned how easy it is to make at home (here’s more about compound butter, also called flavored butter and finishing butter). Epicurean Butter is a terrific line that makes anyone an instantly-better […]
