Zingerman's premier club

Culinary Adventure Society

The right gift for that friend or client who thinks they’re the Indiana Jones of the culinary world. No rolling boulders here, but four times a year we’ll send a big box of eight to ten food surprises. Based on our most up to date food research and travel, perhaps they’ll taste olio nuovo, a coveted bottle of great olive oil, just pressed. Maybe a cheese from one of America’s small dairies so regional it rarely leaves its neighborhood. Or maybe the latest invention from Zingerman’s Bakehouse, only available in Ann Arbor. All foods in the Culinary Adventure Society will be exclusively selected for its members. We’ll include a collection of writing on the food history and culture plus serving suggestions. Bonus: free, autographed copy of Zingerman’s Guide to Good Eating book with the first shipment.

Watch out, morning toast. Watch out, pancakes or crepes. In its home region of Piedmont it’s often added to a cup of coffee, so coffee better watch out, too.

revival

American Cheese Club Twenty years ago you could count the number of great American cheeses on two hands. Maybe that’s exaggerating, but not by much. Back then, being a small-scale cheesemaker was like being a beekeeper—a strange hobby with little reward or recognition. Half the cheesemakers crafted nearly identical tiny wheels of goat’s milk cheese, which, given that we had no American goat cheese tradition to speak of, cheese shops insisted on calling chèvre, the French word for goat. If you went into any serious cheese shop in America in 1994, chances are the only American cheeses you found were chèvres and cheddars. Have things ever changed. This monthly club celebrates some of our favorite cheesemakers. Some are new. Some of them have been around for a long time. And while their cheeses may not be traditional in the European sense of having been made the same way for over a century, they’re all made by hand, using traditional methods, often with milk from the herd they milk themselves, something fewer and fewer European makers can claim.

Included in Every Shipment Profiles of the Makers, Serving Tips, 2 cheeses totaling over one pound.

continuous cake, a great corporate gift Monthly Coffeecake Club

Our coffeecakes aren’t built on any secrets. They’re also not built from too much sugar, shortening or other shortcuts that mar the flavor of many “gourmet” pastries. These are a product of great ingredients and a lot of tender care. Their honest flavor is easy to enjoy and kind of addictive. They’re our most popular gift. This club is a great way to give someone a chance to enjoy all of our coffeecakes, one per month. Just as they start to miss what they finished a fresh one arrives. Your succulent sentiments will be hard to forget. A gift subscription makes a great professional present. Each cake serves 5-7.

more than you think Gingerbread Coffeecake

This little number has a lot going on, flavor-wise. While gingerbread’s dark, mysterious flavor appeals to almost all ages and taste preferences, we make it even more attractive with an array of excellent ingredients: crystallized and ground ginger, lots of dark molasses, a bit of brewed coffee, a splash of fresh orange juice, Indonesian cinnamon, cloves and (my personal favorite) Balinese long pepper. It makes a coffeecake that’s a little spicy, very aromatic and richly textured. Like nothing else around, a huge hit among holiday gift givers.

nOt tOo swEet Hot Cocoa Coffeecake

It’s easy to imagine chocolate coffeecake is going to taste too sweet. That’s one of the reasons we went with cocoa instead. A very special cocoa, made for us by Scharffen Berger. It is more complex and elegantly excellent than any cocoa I’ve ever tried. And like a cup of well-made cocoa this is a cake you can adore any time. It’s always a welcome table guest: with morning coffee, with afternoon tea or with a scoop of ice cream to top off a long day before you head off to bed.

lost in the marketplace Lemon Poppy Seed Coffeecake Maybe the most underrated baked good we make. It’s the secret sunrise snack of Zingerman’s regulars who happily bypass bagels and muffins for a slice. Made with fresh lemon juice, real lemon oil, loads of real butter and vanilla, plus a veritable passel of Dutch poppy seeds. With none of the artificial aftertaste that most lemon-flavored pastries have, it tastes like biting into a perfect morning: sunny, rich, delicious.

european accent Deluxe Almond Coffeecake

A smooth, all-natural almond paste gives this cake a captivating aroma. It reminds me of some of the great European desserts of the Mediterranean, especially from Portugal and Sicily, but with a moist, dense, all-American texture. With a thin, buttery crust and a bright, nutty flavor that feels like you're spending the afternoon by the sea.

cofFEecake's Cousin Cinnful Cinnamon Roll Gift Box

Almost anyone can make a cinnamon roll smell good while it’s baking, even among the cell phone kiosks at the mall. Unfortunately, most have little more than aroma to offer. You won’t taste much beyond sugar and cinnamon. The real challenge is to fashion a cinnamon roll that tastes as good as it smells. These fit the bill. Warm them up, break one open and put your nose up close. You’ll smell sweet butter, Indonesian cinnamon, real vanilla. But the real treat is next. Take one bite. That’s all you’ll need to forget the litany of cinnamon roll disappointments life has dealt you.

Mountain Mamas Antique Alpage Gruyère Made only in summer high in the alps and aged many months more than the usual half year that most gruyére gets.

C-GRU ½ lb hand cut wedge $14 by the pound $26 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Comté from Fort St. Antoine France’s most renowned mountain cheese, selected for us by Essex Street Cheese Co. from the caves of legendary Jura affineur Maison Marcel Petite. Fudgy texture, well balanced, never bitey flavor, with a buttery, hazelnut taste that grows on the tongue and slowly expands to fill your entire mouth. C-COM ½ lb hand cut wedge $20 by the pound $38 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Ths Comté "...looks like silk and dissolves smoothly on the tongue." Janet Fletcher, San Francisco Chronicle Piave from Northeast Italy This rarely tasted traditional cheese made high in the mountains of northern Italy has been one of my favorite eating cheeses for years. We buy wheels with a little more age on them than most. Piave has the smoothness of cheddar, the texture of Parmigiano-Reggiano and the mellowness of sweet mountain butter. Flavor wise, think of a good Parmigiano-Reggiano, with a little kick of sweet mountain gruyère. C-PIA ½ lb hand cut wedge $13 by the pound $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

L'étivaz from Switzerland L'Étivaz is made essentially as gruyère was one hundred years ago. It’s made only when the cows are doing their summer grazing in Alpine pastures in mountain meadows filled with wild flowers and herbs. It must be made in traditional copper cauldrons and only over open wood fires. The resulting cheese is superb: a bit creamier, less sharp than the abovementioned Antique Gruyère, yet exceptionally smooth and flavorful. Aged for over a year, it has a firm texture, a meltin-your-mouth butteriness and a lingering lilt of succulent Swiss mountain cream.

The Kings of Parmesan Farmhouse Parmigiano-Reggiano Not all the wheels that bear the world famous Parmigiano-Reggiano name are created equal. There are big differences from one to the next. This one is made by a dairy nearly 2,000 feet up in the hills outside of Modena, Italy. The high altitude makes for plenty of diversity in the grasses, herbs and flowers growing in the cows’ pastures. This means that the milk—and therefore your cheese—is full of the pastures' complex flavors. The wheels are aged for a minimum of two years (33% longer than the Consorzio minimum). Most important, the finished cheese has a really rich, wonderfully complex flavor with a lovely, long finish and none of that bitterness or mouthburn that often mars the final flavor of others. Wrapped well, it lasts for weeks.

Cravero Parmigiano-Reggiano: The Eater's Cheese Giorgio Cravero's fifth generation firm in Bra, Italy, has been selecting Parmigiano-Reggiano since 1855. He chooses wheels that are sweet and light, with a lusciousness that prompts you to reach for another piece just about the time you finish the first. If you haven't tried Parmigiano as an eating cheese before, this is the place to start. C-VER ½ lb hand cut piece $18 by the pound $34 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

tuscany's SheEp Cheese Pecorino di Toscano

The most popular cheese in Tuscany. Chances are if you've had dinner in Florence or Siena, this made an appearance, maybe hidden, grated in the dish, which is one reason why it belongs on this page next to Parmigiano-Reggiano. It’s an excellent alternative to Parmesan as a grating cheese. Use it alone or mix it with Parmigiano, half and half. Made from sheep's milk, this sweet, nutty cheese is perfect on pasta, with fava beans or served alongside some good salami and prosciutto. You can usually buy it quite young, when it's still soft. We prefer it at about eight to twelve months old—like this one—when its bolder flavors come through. C-TOS ½ lb hand cut wedge $13 by the pound $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Young Americans Great Lakes Cheshire John Loomis first tried making Great Lakes Cheshire in Ann Arbor twenty years ago. In spite of being a delicious cheese he couldn’t make it work, probably in part because it was a somewhat obscure cheese. The American artisan cheese movement—and the American artisan cheese eater—has come a long way since then. My fellow cheese eaters, you are ready for it now, I can feel it. Cheshire is originally an English cheese with a tangy, citrusy flavor and a lovely crumble to its texture. (In fact, we carry the last traditional farmhouse Cheshire from Appleby's in England.) John’s Cheshire has a bit more earthiness than the English variety, but it’s still a recognizable relative. It’s great on its own, but it really shines when it’s on Farm Bread toast, melted just a bit under the broiler. Great Lakes Cheshire may have a bit of blue mold inside. It is entirely natural and complements its flavor nicely. C-GLC ½ lb $19 by the pound $37 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Pleasant Ridge Reserve

Marieke Gouda Made by Marieke Penterman in Thorp, Wisconsin, this rivals the Netherlands' best cheeses in depth of flavor, complexity and balance. We select wheels aged on pine planks for a full year. They have an irresistibly delicious balance of rich, dense, sweet and savory creaminess with little crunchy flavor crystals that are a sign of great flavor. C-MKE ½ lb hand cut wedge $16 by the pound $30

Mike Gingrich and his crew make this farmhouse cheese using the milk of their mixed herd of 140 cows only when they're out to pasture. Production is small, especially since their herd gives a very low yield. They make up for volume with flavor. It's the kind of cheese that ages well; we select wheels aged a few months more than what you'll find on almost any other cheese counter in America. It’s special reserve stock, the flavor more intense, and to me it catapults Pleasant Ridge to the ranks of the top cheeses in the world. Balanced caramel flavor, long lasting finish.

Bayley Hazen Blue from Vermont A stellar cheese that reminds me a bit of raw milk Stilton, not too much of a surprise since Mateo learned some of his craft working with Neal’s Yard Dairy in London. The air that enters forms the blue mold which sends veins throughout the cheese, softening its texture, magnifying its flavor. To me, its the texture that is the real treat. Andy calls it “a cross between butter and chocolate,” and he’s not stretching it. Frankly, for blue cheese lovers, it’s irresistible. C-BYZ ½ lb hand cut $18 by the pound $34

British Originals Raw Milk Stilton The only traditional raw milk Stilton in the world. Working in the cheese’s home county of Nottinghamshire, Joe Schneider turns 2,440 liters of fresh milk from the farm's herd into Stichelton every day. The curds are hand ladled before being set into forms and drained. Later, they're pierced with needles, and the famous blueing begins. Four to six months later we taste the result: an exquisite, legendary blue with broad, buttery flavors that linger well into the evening. Selected by Neal’s Yard Dairy just for us.

Fine Fishes Bonito Tuna from Spain Tuna is one of the most popular foods we sell. It may seem surprising because here in the U.S., tinned tuna is a low-end commodity usually sold in supermarkets. In Spain it’s at the complete opposite of the culinary spectrum. Tuna in tins, especially these from the fourth-generation family firm Ortiz, is one of the jewels in Spain's culinary crown. Ortiz's fish are all line caught—not netted—hand filleted at sea and quickly tinned in good olive oil. The olive oil is key. It adds flavor and makes the texture silky over time, unlike water, which tends to leach flavors from the fish.

sicilian caviar sauce

Sea Urchin Sauce

If you're not sure whether you like sea urchin, don’t start here. But if you love it—or know someone who does—then you’re on to something very special. Sea urchin, ricci in Italian, are to the Mediterranean Sea as caviar are to the Caspian: a prized catch, low in supply, expensive and a source of passion matched by few other fish. The spiny urchins are collected by hand and opened immediately, manually, one at a time. Each number yields a tiny amount of edible flesh. The flavor is briny, metallic, intense, like an oyster to the fourth power. Thirty grams of sea urchin are woven into each 200 gram jar of tomato based sauce spiked with tuna roe and anchovies. A powerful blast of flavor, you won’t need more than a spoon or two for a plate of spaghetti. P-URH 200 g jar, serves 10-12 $39 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

speadable pork

Iowa White

If the name sounds more like a drug than a food, that’s probably intentional. This is spreadable cured pork fat. It’s not lard but more like lardo, the revered Italian cured fat. The flavor is just this side of sweet, the texture is pure velvet, and the porky aroma, tinged with clove, nutmeg, coriander and rosemary, lingers long afterward. Herb from La Quercia, the dealer trafficking it told me, “Anything you use butter for you can use this.” That might be stretching it, but you could definitely go to town with it.

The Original Cheese Partner

Bath Oliver Crackers

Dr. William Oliver invented this cracker in the mid1700s, for his convalescing patients in Bath, England. He wanted to create a healthy food that went well with the cheeses of the area (cheddar, for one). They’ve been a mainstay of British cheese trays every since. Large, flat and white, they’re a “hard-tack” variety of cracker like our Vermont Common crackers (available online). Their flavor is almost like a southern biscuit. Suitable for any cheese, but especially nice with longer aged varieties and anything British. P-BOC 3.5 oz box $10 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

western italy’s eating olive

Tremiti Olives from Italy Tremiti olives are picked young, in mid-October, just as they’re beginning to mature and turn from green to gold and brown. Usually I’m not a fan of olives picked this early: they’re not very ripe and therefore don’t have much flavor. Not so with tremiti. They’re bursting with it, a juicy, winey flavor that is utterly captivating. Their texture is like a firm plum, the skin bending then bursting with each bite. Where inexpensive deli counter olives are usually salty and strong, these are delicate and floral. They have a refreshing not too salty aftertaste—just as I’m finishing one I find I'm reaching for another. Serve them rinsed, coated in a dose of good olive oil like our Peranzana, spritzed with a twist of lemon and alongside a platter of cured meats. P-TRE 300 g jar $20 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

the next best thing

Crespone, Felino and Cacciatore Salamis Living in America we are forbidden from importing Cuban cigars, Iranian saffron—and Italian salami. I know, the salami ban makes little sense to me, either. But the FDA makes the rules. We're left with the next best thing which, to be honest, has gotten quite good: the cured meats from the recipes of Francois Vecchio. The salamis, made in the style of Verona (crespone), Parma (felino) and rural huntsman (cacciatore) are coarse cut creations, made from premium meats are hand sorted into very thick, natural pork casings. The casings let the meat age more slowly. Time costs money, of course, but it’s worth it, offering up a salami that's sweeter, more soft and succulent and more perfumed than any around. We ship them whole. You trim the casing (it’s OK to eat, but I prefer to peel it off) and slice what you'd like. Serve at room temperature, cut into thick coins for maximum flavor.

Prunes. It’s one of those words you should never use to market a food. Almost all its connotations are bad. So let me start by calling these dried plums. Now, doesn’t that sound better? Dried plums from Agen, a town in southwest France just below Bordeaux, are kind of like hazelnuts from the Piedmont or sour cherries from Michigan: a famed food, an agricultural event people travel great distances just to taste. Though dried, these plums are incredibly moist, almost juicy when you eat them, with a dark caramel note in the flavor. I like to add them to yogurt for breakfast. Or do as they do in Agen: soak them in Armagnac brandy and take them after dinner with some cheese. P-PRN 500 g $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

roadhouse bread

The house bread at our restaurant, Zingerman’s Roadhouse and a local favorite. It’s based on an early New England recipe, made by combining rye flour and cornmeal with wheat. Anyone from an 18th century New Englander to Laura Ingalls Wilder would recognize and enjoy it today (it’s referred to in Little House on the Prairie as Rye ‘n’ Injun bread). The same goes for almost anyone I hand a slice to today. It’s got great crust and a soft, chewy center that has a slight sweetness from dark molasses, making it a hit with kids. Excellent with cream cheese and smoked salmon. B-ROA 1.5 lb handmade loaf $8.50 B-2K-ROA 2 kilo round $25

farm bread

Imagine sitting around a French farmhouse table waiting for dinner. This would be the bread the family would serve. Like French pain au levain, it's a white-wheat mix made with a sour starter. Its crust is crisp, its flavor subtle and never tiring. The 1.5 pound loaf is pictured, but the 3 pound round is my favorite. Cut into quarters and freeze what you don’t eat.

french mouNtain I’d have a tough time picking between this and Farm Bread for top spot on my European-style favorites list.

We offer it in two sizes, a .75 kilo loaf (about 1.65 lbs) that’s good for munching and a 2 kilo (about 4.5 lbs, illustrated) work of art. I love the 2K loaf. A good foot and a half across and four or five inches high, it’s decorated with a hand-cut “Z.” The size is significant because bigger loaves almost always taste better.

My Italian friends would probably think this bread is heresy, but that’s their loss. It’s a natural for me because I love bread, parmesan and good black pepper.

savory granola

Farmhand's Choice Granola Nekisia Davis has a bit of a salt tooth. It led her to make granola where the main flavors are savory, not sweet. Instead of using butter and sugar she uses olive oil and salt as the base of her handmade granola which includes organic rolled oats, toasted organic coconut, organic pepitas, organic sunflower seeds, fancy pecans. The savoriness is leavened with a bit of real maple syrup and organic brown sugar, but the overall effect is much different than—and, in my mind, often more appealing than—standard granola.

Macroom Irish Oatmeal

Eating this for the first time is like taking your first promenade in Paris, France, when all you’ve known is Paris, Texas. The Walton family has been milling oats in Ireland since the 1700s, and they still use old stone wheels, which I think leave the oats better tasting than steel cut. The result is a coarse meal that has its natural oils still intact, making the meal darker than other oatmeals. P-OAT 2 lb $16 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

the platonic ideal

Nueske’s Wisconsin Applewood Smoked The Nueske family started smoking bacon in Hillcrest, Wisconsin in the late 1800s. Like many of the long lived family companies we buy from, their passion hasn’t seemed to wane in over a century. “In our family we put bacon on everything,” says Tanya Nueske, granddaughter of the founder. Not surprisingly, the Nueskes start with well bred, well fed hogs—primarily a cross of Yorkshire, Hampshire, Landrace and Berkshire—and serve them a mix of barley and corn. All the pork is hand trimmed and cured for 24 hours. They hang the slabs for another 24 hours to dry. Then they’re smoked over apple wood for—you guessed it—24 hours. There's a reason this is our top seller. It’s perfectly balanced between softly, pleasantly sweet and salty/smoky. To me this is the Platonic ideal of bacon. If I were to choose one bacon to eat every day, which pretty much sounds like heaven, this would be it. Nueske's custom cuts their bacon on the thicker side, just for us. We get 10-12 slices per pound versus the normal sixteen. M-BAC 1 lb, sliced $16 2 or more lbs $15 each M-SLAB about 4.5 lbs, unsliced $75

calabrian snack attack Wild Artichokes in Olive Oil

In Italy, they're called carciofini selvatici, which is the name you'll see on the label. They're a variety of artichoke that grows wild in Calabria during April and May. Picked by hand, they’re dethorned and cleaned, then blanched for just a few minutes so their texture remains firm. About the size of an acorn, they’re bottled with olive oil, wine vinegar, salt, black pepper and a little bit of red chili pepper—a spice you find in many Calabrian foods. The red pepper is so subtle you won’t notice its faint spice until you’ve had two or three, a feat that’s way too easy to accomplish with artichokes this good. Throw a couple in a pasta dish. Add them to salads. Serve alongside some sheep’s milk cheese. Or follow your heart, open the jar and just eat 'em straight up. P-ART 175 g jar, about 30 artichokes $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Piment d’Esplette Sauce

Walk down any grocery store aisle in America and you’ll see a wall of hot sauces. For some reason we’ve come to judge their quality by the level of caution on the label, not by the way they taste. This one might change your hot sauce expectations. Its flavor is crisp, bright and sweet with a confident kick of spice that ticklesn—not numbs—the tongue. It’s made in the Basque region straddling France and Spain by infusing local wine vinegar with dried piment d’esplette red pepper, the defining spice of the area’s cuisine. Use it with all sorts of dishes: fish, roasted meats, grilled veggies, scrambled eggs, or give your Bloody Mary a Basque accent. P-PNT 100 ml bottle $16 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Koeze Cream-Nut Peanut Butter

The peanut butter that's become a legend. We found this one almost right next door in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Jeff Koeze sources incredible Virginia peanuts, brings them up north in 2,000 pound sacks, then blanches them to remove the skins and keep them from going rancid (a common flaw in a lot of natural peanut butters). He roasts them in vintage coffee roasters, grinds them smooth, then adds a bit of salt. The result is not an air whipped, sugar filled concoction but a natural, intense, velvety, mouthwatering sensation. Get a couple jars, quick.

From rainy, green, Northwest Spain, come these tender, perfect chestnuts. They’ve been cooked and peeled which, if you’ve done it before, you know is quite a bit of work. It’s rare to find chestnuts this good that aren’t in syrup or glacéed (we carry both, too). Their flavor is woodsy, mushroomy, like a taste of the forest in fall.

Sicily’s Other Famous Nut Pizzuta Almonds

Pizzuta trees bloom along the seacoast of southeastern Sicily in the winter, when most other crops are still deep in slumber. The conditions are perfect there: fertile soil, lots of sun, cool nights. The yield is small, but their flavor is unmatched. Milky, sweet, nutty and intense with a whisper of bitterness that lingers. No other almond compares to pizzuta’s intensity of flavor. A small pile of pizzuta almonds next to aged cheese is a treat along with some good salami and crusty bread. But the purest enjoyment comes from crunching them one by one over a lazy afternoon.

the FOie GraS of fInishINg Oils Roasted Butternut Squash Oil

This silky oil is made with butternut squash seeds that are roasted and pressed for their oil. The first smell is a blast of fall, redolent of toasted pumpkin seeds and roasted nuts. At nearly ten squashes’ worth per bottle, its flavor is intense, which is why I think of it as the foie gras of oils. Just a drizzle over a salad—nothing else needed—transports the dish. It's also outstanding poured on soup, especially if it's made from squash. Try some with avocado, blue cheese and toasted walnuts too. From New York. O-BSS 6.3 oz bottle $20

rare breed from Catalonia Clos de la Torre Olive Oil

In the Empordà region in northeast Spain near the French border grows the rare Argudell olive. It’s a tiny olive, even smaller than Spain’s famous Arbequina. The trees are difficult to grow and the yield is small. That’s the downside. On the upside, these olives pack a lot of flavor into their petite purple packages. This oil’s unusual blend of Argudell, Picual and Frantoio olives create an oil with flavors unlike any other on our shelves. It starts off buttery and soft, almost luscious. It grows into something bold and grassy, with notes of red pepper before finishing on the bitter end of the spectrum. It’s one of the most complex oils I’ve tasted in recent memory and a great ambassador Catalonian oils. O-CLO 500 ml bottle $33 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Most of the mustard seed oil imported and sold in the U.S. lacks flavor. They’re harsh, hot and greasy. The Aussies behind this oil wanted to do better. Taking a page from Gregor Mendel’s book, they bred a superior tasting mustard seed through seven years of matchmaking. The oil is spicy with slightly sweet and nutty notes in the finish. The spiciness turns a bit buttery when you use it for sautéing, like with bitter greens. Its smoke point is high, so crank up the heat and use it to pan fry fish. The boost of flavor turns any mild dish into something you’ll want to showcase. O-SMS 375 ml $30 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Our House Oils top selLer Zingerman’s Peranzana Zingerman’s Olive Oil is made by Marina Colonna on her ancient estate in the Molise, a little over 100 miles due east of Rome. Made from hand picked Peranzana olives pressed the same day they’re taken from the tree, this oil is hugely flavorful.

Frantoio from Chile

The latest bottling, from the summer 2010 harvest (because Chile’s in the southern hemisphere, they pick in summer, not fall) is a big oil. It has a wonderful aroma that reminds me of almonds and has a really beautiful bitterness in the finish that may catch you with a punch of late breaking pepperiness. To me it has the same sort of appeal of the bitter end of dark chocolate. It’s lively, engaging, intriguing. Not strong but vital, alive. My mouth tingles long after I’ve finished eating it. Organic.

This is not lemon flavored oil but the traditional pressing of olives and lemons together—oil of the fruit married to oil of the olive in an ethereal combination.

The latest harvest, from fall 2010, has a delightful bitterness, similar to the tanning you taste in black tea. It builds to a peppery peak that hits you in the front and back of the throat. So thick it pours from the bottle like cream, so delicious I find myself thinking of more dishes to use it with. The bottle is as compelling as the oil: tall, thin, octagonal, housed in its own box.

The silky, sexy oil from Tuscany

light and elegant leader

Savignola Paolina Olive Oil

Roi from Liguria

Everyone forgets the name of this oil. It’s long and nearly unpronounceable. Luckily, it has an alias that no one can forget: "The silky, sexy oil from Tuscany." We couldn’t have given it a more accurate moniker. Savignola Paolina olive oil is unfiltered, giving it a thick, creamy, buttery texture. It has a luscious, mouthfilling flavor that’s very grassy in this year’s harvest, hinting of artichokes with a soft touch of pepper at the finish. Carlo Fabri makes only 500 bottles a year, and all his olives are picked and pressed in a three day family affair in early November. He sends almost his entire production to us. The tall, elegant, black bottle is as sexy as the oil within. Outstanding. O-SAV 500 ml $36

On the Italian Riviera, delicacy, not strength, brings an oil acclaim and honor. Roi is one of the best Ligurian oils I’ve tried. It’s been made in the mountain town of Badalucco by the Boeri family since 1900. Mellow yet rich in its unfiltered state, it’s delicately delicious, feathery light and perfect for pesto making. Its subtle, lingering flavors leave you smiling long after you’ve tasted it. I use it for dressing fresh fish or a delicate salad. O-ROI-500 500 ml $25 O-ROI 1 liter $40 SHIPS FLAT RATE

Working just off the historic square in the center of the old town of Castelvetro, southwest of Modena, Italy, Roberta Pelloni and her husband, Marino Tintori, make a range of great vinegars. Although Americans tend to gravitate toward sweet caramel-flavored balsamics, Marino is quick to emphasize “the key to great Balsamico is balance.” Exaggerating sweetness is an easy way to enhance appeal and reduce the need for proper blending and aging. You might not notice it at first, but after many uses overly sweet balsamics get kind of dull. Not so with those from the Tintoris. We've been selling them for over a decade, and they have a legion of followers who return to them again and again. All are highly recommended, the ten year aged is the most popular.

Fynbos is a natural area of shrubland in the western Cape of South Africa. The name is Afrikaan for fine bush, referencing the long, thin needles of the plants in the area.

Arkansas Peppered Ham

Arkansas ham is tasty as can be. The jacket of peppercorns balances the natural sweetness in a way that I find really pleasing. I like things spicy, but this isn’t like that. In fact, I served it at Christmas and even the blandest tongues at the table, those who balk at anything spicier than mild salsa, thought it was amazing. The real kicker is that it’s got the bone in, which doubles the flavor by my measure. Instructions for heating are included, but you can also serve it cool.

the choCOlate of pOrk Ibérico Bellota Cured Pork Loin

Shocking. There’s no other way to describe the experience of first tasting cured bellota pork—in this case, the loin made from heirloom Ibérico pigs who’ve feasted on bellotas (acorns) the last months of their lives. Even in Spain, where bellota pork is more common, eating it is a very special event. The acorn diet has a magical effect on the meat’s texture. It appears to lower the fat’s melting point to body temperature. Eating a thin slice is like placing a piece of chocolate on your tongue. It immediately puddles, the flavor releasing itself in the process. A cut of loin is about a foot long, the thickness of a baseball bat handle. It’s riddled with fat: tiny, creamy white flecks among the rosy flesh. Outside it’s coated in paprika which, while not spicy, gives each bite a tiny peppery tingle. Unbelievable stuff. M-LOM ibérico bellota loin, about 1.1 lbs $140 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

This stuff gives new and very seriously sensual meaning to the words “hot chocolate.” When you read about chocolate being the morning beverage of Renaissance royalty in Europe, this is what they were drinking. I know it’s hard to believe anything this good could come from a pre-packed mix, but it does. So thick, so chocolatey, so intensely rich, it’s almost impossible to describe.

Candyman Charlie Frank isn’t reinventing the wheel, just making it more delicious. The latest creation from his candy kitchen is a flavorcharged upgrade of classic peanut brittle. Jumbo Runner peanuts jut like boulders in a shiny, golden, crisp candy sea. The texture looks silky but shatters with each bite. To achieve this consistency Charlie makes small batches by hand with a watchful eye. This is stove-top brittle, not factory gristle, with butterscotch brown flavor, sharp, crackly texture and the lingering savory aftertaste of roasted peanut.
