cheesemonger's choice Comté from Fort St. Antoine

SAVE

$18

Selected just for us from the renowned cheese caves of France's legendary Jura affineur, Maison Marcel Petite, these cheeses are aged inside the 19th-century Fort St. Antoine. These are mostly summer cheeses, those made only when the cows are out to pasture in flowering hills. Fudgy texture, well balanced, never bitey flavor, our Comté has a buttery, hazelnut taste that grows on the tongue. It finishes with a wave of cream that slowly expands to fill your entire mouth. A comic's comic, a writer's writer, this is a cheesemonger's cheese. I could eat it every day. C-COM by the pound was $38, NOW $20 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

These wheels are made in north Holland from the milk of Holstein cows, two factors that give the cheese a distinctive creaminess speckled with big, crunchy flavor crystals.

snacker's salami Borsellino Salami

La Quercia's borsellino sausage is soft, sweet, porky and even a little earthy. Somewhere between a quarter and a half-dollar in diameter, its natural casing is stuffed with pork that's coarsely ground, liberally littered with morsels of fat. The plain is mild but substantial, without the heavy salting that you often find in other salamis. The piccante sausage reminds me a bit of Spanish chorizo—smoky and slightly spicy, but not at all hot. Serve with either a cheese plate or toss chunks into pasta or salads. Throw one into your backpack the next time you head out for a hike. It can go for hours—or days—without refrigeration. Like all their meats, La Quercia's salamis are made from hogs raised naturally, without hormones or sub-theraputic antibiotics.

Cocoa Lomo from La Quercia

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. Eating a thin slice is like placing a piece of chocolate on your tongue. It immediately puddles, the flavor releasing itself in the process. Unbelievable stuff. M-LOM about 1.1 lbs was $150, NOW $100

Lomo—Spanish for "loin"—is one of the subtlest, mildest cured meats we offer. But that doesn't mean it lacks flavor. Cured with sea salt, smoked Spanish Pimeton de la Vera paprika and a bit of cocoa. Slice thinly, lay it out with olives, cheese and six or eight glasses of wine, and you'll see what I mean.

welcome return Ashed Aged Chelsea

After a few years of research and recipe noodling the Aged Chelsea from Zingerman’s Creamery is back, ready for its close-up. This time it’s robed in a fine layer of ash. Made in the same style as the famous French goat cheese St. Maure, the five inch logs are rolled in ash when they’re four days old, then set to age for another week or so. The ash decreases the acidity on the surface of the cheese and works in concert with the natural molds and yeasts to develop flavor. Chemistry nuts and cheesemakers love these kinds of details, but what matters to the rest of us is flavor and this has lots of it. Buttery, brightly acidic yet surprisingly sweet, its texture is smooth with a faint crumble. Great on a cheese plate, served with crusty bread, scattered over a salad or even broiled over meat. C-TAC ½ lb log $10 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Unwaxed for flavor's sake

Essex Manchego

Essex Manchego is one of Spain’s only farmhouse, raw milk, unwaxed Manchegos. Unwaxed refers to the rind and, for the most part, cheese rinds seem to be one of those cheesemaking details that only get the attention of cheesemongers and makers. They have a tremendous effect on flavor and texture, though. The active cultures in cheese cause it to breath. It loses moisture as it ages. When the rind is waxed it holds those effects in, increasing sellable weight, but often resulting in off-flavored cheeses that taste harsh. Unwaxed Essex Manchego has a lovely, dry crumble and never tastes bitey. It goes down smooth, with the unmistakable sweetness of sheep’s milk and a long savory finish that pairs well with almonds (p. 48) and plums. An excellent cheese, made by Maria José in the dry hills of Mancha. New to America, selected just for Essex St. Cheese Co.—the same great source of our Comté (p. 2) and L’amuse gouda (p. 3).

sublime pork Red Wattle Porterhouse Pork Chop

Red Wattles are an old breed of pig that was raised for flavor, not fashion. Today you might find Red Wattle in a few restaurants in New York. There was almost no supply for us home cooks. Until now. We’re working with Heritage Foods to secure big, fat, Red Wattle porterhouse pork chops. Each measures an inch and a quarter thick and tips the scales at fourteen ounces. The flavor is rich, herbaceous, even a little sweet. It packs more flavor than I’ve ever had in a pork chop. The crowning glory of Red Wattle pork, however, is its fat. It marbles the meat and wraps the chop in a soft, opaque band. When cooked it melts within the meat and softens its edge to a luscious, lip-smacking bite. This is melt-inyour mouth fat, the kind of succulent experience you expect in great steaks and some cured meats. It’s never a sensation I’d experienced in a pork chop until I met this one. The pork comes from hogs that are raised impeccably. The pigs are not confined, have access to the outdoors, and never receive antibiotics or hormones. Chops ship frozen, though they may thaw and be cold, not hard, when they arrive. They come two to a pack.

Duroc Porterhouse Pork Chop If you're looking for a earthier, nuttier pork chop— or you're a fan of Red Wattle and just want to add variety to your table—this is another amazing pork chop. What it lacks in sweetness and melting fat it makes up in power. It's like a cow and a pig had a transgression and a new form of meat emerged.

tropical vinegar

a nod to complexity

Banana Vinegar

Vermouth Vinegar

Made straight from the plantano machos, a cross between sweet bananas and starchy plantains. The fruit is allowed to warm for a few days, either by hanging in direct sunlight or heated slowly in an oven. The liquid that’s released is collected and allowed to ferment. That’s it. No sugar, no banana “flavoring,” just straight fruit vinegar. The result is bright, sweet, slightly sharp, with a distinct flavor of banana. Use it to add a little tropical note to your next vinaigrette or use it to deglaze a pan and drizzle the sauce over grilled meat. Excellent stuff. V-PLV 365 ml bottle $20 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Banyuls Vinegar Over six years of aging in wood yields the smoothest, most feathery light flavor I've ever tasted in a vinegar. Subtly sweet, with a touch of almond and a hint of fine, aged sherry. V-BAN 375 ml bottle $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

It’s rare to see a vinegar made from vermouth. In fact, I think this is the first time for me. To some extent it’s a function of vermouth’s complexity. Why go through the trouble of making vermouth, a fortified wine made with secret blends of botanicals, if you’re going just turn around and make it into vinegar? It’s cheaper and easier to just make wine vinegar. But there’s nothing cheap or easy about this vinegar from Mollerussa, Spain. Even the fermentation—a rare method known as Shützenbach—is complex and costly, involving constant circulation to expose the vermouth to a lot of air and evaporation. It captures the more delicate flavors and aromas of the vermouth, keeping it lovely, herbaceous and light. You can use this anywhere you might use wine vinegar, but expect a lot more flavor. Makes fantastic vinaigrettes and is great drizzled over grilled fish or fresh vegetables. V-VRV 500 ml bottle $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

smalL Batch BritTle Zingerman's Peanut Brittle

Candyman Charlie Frank isn’t reinventing the wheel, just making it more delicious. The latest creation from his candy kitchen is a flavor-charged 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 stovetop brittle, not factory gristle, with butterscotch brown flavor, sharp, crackly texture and the lingering savory aftertaste of roasted peanut.

top sardines

Portuguese Sardines

There are actually dozens of different fish sold as sardines in the U.S. Most are either brislings from Norway or herring from the North Atlantic. While they aren't bad, they don't come close to the flavor of true pilchards like these. And unlike Norwegian sardines, these are never smoked, so the full flavor of the fish comes through. Four or five tender, perfect sardines, nested in a tin of olive oil. We offer standard or extra virgin olive oil, which has the effect of making the flavor more buttery, less metallic. In a way it's less fishy. To some folks who are used to a briny, edgy flavor these will come off as softer, rounder.

Amazing stuff, with the kind of out-of-fashion packaging that belies the high quality of fish within. Eat them on their own, forked out of the tin. Or top a green salad with a couple fillets, capers, Marash red pepper and lemon zest. An unparalleled late night snack. P-EEL 105 g tin $18

Berberechos

Galician cockles—berberechos, in Spanish—are tiny, coveted clams, hand shucked and tinned in simple brine. The amount of handwork to get this done is extraordinary, and the care is evident as soon as you open the tin. The placement of each clam, the wonderful sweet sea aroma and the flavor and texture—ocean sweet, meaty, tender and succulent—are clearly a labor of love. This is the kind of tinned seafood that you find almost nowhere besides Spain where it's considered a delicacy. It may take some time to wrap your head around that idea, or wrap your wallet around the price, but if you know someone who loves special fishes, this is definitely worth splurging on.

Ortiz 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. All are Kosher.

the rap these fish deserve Rizzoli Olive Oil Packed Anchovies

In most social circles it's rarely appropriate to admit that you love anchovies. But when you hook up with great anchovies like these they can quickly become one of the most enjoyable parts of your eating routine. Rizzoli is a fifth-generation firm in Parma, Italy that buys anchovies in the spring, when they're fattest. They're caught in traditional net circles which keeps them from being bruised. The attention Rizzoli gives to the entire process is clear when you see their tin. It's a gorgeous gold box that looks like a jewel case more than a fish tin. These are not the putrid little fish you find scattered on pizza. Rizzoli's anchovies are consistently plump, meaty, never mealy, with the clear, crisp, deep flavor of the sea. Toast some Farm Bread, rub a raw clove of garlic across the surface, then lay a couple of these on top. I also like the open face egg salad sandwich made by Café Fanny in Berkeley, topped with anchovy fillets. One tin contains about ten cleaned fillets, ready for eating.

the king OF italian cheEse

Farmhouse Parmigiano-Reggiano

Not all the wheels that bear the world famous ParmigianoReggiano 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.

Great Lakes Cheshire

Cheshire is originally an English cheese with a tangy, citrusy flavor and a lovely crumble to its texture. John’s Loomis's Michigan 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 hand cut wedge $19 by the pound $37

Jasper Hill Farms buys and ages wheels of clothbound cheddar from Cabot Creamery in their cheese caves. The wheels they select just for us have a beefy, brothy flavor. The texture is flakier and less rubbery than waxed cheddar. Aged at least 13 months—about 25% longer than what you’ll find elsewhere—it’s a compelling cheese with a complex, lingering finish that you can’t shake. Ed Behr, in the Art of Eating, called it “The world’s best cheddar.” Buy a piece of Montgomery’s (left, considered the planet's best cheddar by many) to compare and see what you think.

america's standard Pleasant Ridge Reserve

This may be the best American cheese being made today. Like a European mountain cheese, it's fruity in an appley sort of way—rich, deep and sweet. Production is very small—about 6,000 wheels a year. They utilize a seasonal, open grazing system, which means all the milk used to make the Pleasant Ridge Reserve is taken when the cows are happy and content out in the open pasture. Happy cows tend to produce great tasting milk. Since we've been working so closely with the maker we have the opportunity to select specific days of cheese, tasting from a series of different days of production to pick the most flavorful of the bunch.

"The best Comté I've tasted." Michael, East Northport, NY

L'étivaz from Switzerland L'Étivaz is made essentially as gruyère was one hundred years ago: only when the cows are doing their summer grazing in Alpine pastures in mountain meadows filled with wild flowers and herbs, in traditional copper cauldrons and only over open wood fires. The resulting cheese is superb: a bit creamier, less sharp than Antique Gruyère (below), yet exceptionally smooth and flavorful.

L'amuse Gouda While Gouda is made everywhere in Holland, there are major differences between goudas from different regions. These wheels are made in the north from the milk of Holstein cows, two factors that give the cheese a distinctive creaminess speckled with big, crunchy flavor crystals. Selected for us by Betty Koster of L'amuse, Amsterdam's top cheese shop, aged for over two years at higherthan-normal temperatures so it essentially ages faster, the flavor is correspondingly intense.

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.

parmesan pepper heretic's loaf

We used to bake this on special occasions and we’d get so many orders we'd run out of bacon. It’s Farm Bread dough with Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon and black pepper. Every bite has a bit of sourdough tang and a lot of the sweet, smoky meatiness of bacon, plus a little spice. I’m sure it makes great sandwiches, but I’ve never had a loaf around long enough to try. B-BAC ¾ lb handmade loaf $13 SHIPS 2 BUSINESS DAY

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. There’s a quarter pound of parmesan in every loaf, along with a load of cracked black peppercorns. Leaves your mouth pleasantly aroused from the heat of the pepper and salivating from the savory sweetness of the parmesan. It’s fantastic when toasted. B-PEP 1¼ lb handmade loaf $16

new mexico green chile & cheddar

I love this bread: savory, lusty, delicious and dangerously close to addictive. Softly spicy, fire-roasted New Mexico green chiles and raw milk Nor'easter Cabot cheddar blended into the Bakehouse’s tangy Farm Bread. Great on its own or as an accompaniment to dinner. It’s especially good if you give it about twenty minutes in a 325 degree oven before you break it open so it’s nice and steamy when you crack the crust.

jewish breadS, RYe & Beyond

Traditional Jewish rye bread is still an endangered American species. Eighteen years after we started baking them in Ann Arbor you'll still be hard pressed to find a loaf like them anywhere in the country. Believe it or not, most “rye bread” sold in America contains very little rye flour. These are different. These are breads like my grandparents ate in Eastern Europe: plenty of rye flour, a natural sour rye starter (not the usual canned shortcut) and lots of time to let the dough develop. They’re the breads I reach for to make a sandwich or to eat with cool butter and fresh oysters. A perfect pairing with corned beef.

Our top selLer Peranzana from Molise

Zingerman’s extra virgin olive oil is created 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. The latest vintage has pleasing aromas of green apple, freshly cut grass and leaf and a whisper of almond. It finishes with that great green olive bitterness and a bit of a peppery kick. O-ZIN 500 ml $29 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

cult-like, In a goOd way

Maussane

This is a unique oil that’s got one of the most dedicated followings I’ve ever witnessed. We tracked it down years ago at the adamant insistence of Nancy Harmon Jenkins, one of the world’s most knowledgeable food folks, and it’s had a growing cadre of fans ever since. A rich, golden nectar with a distinctive herbal character no other oil can match, it sings with an unequaled pitch in its range of high and low flavor notes. One of its fans told me, “If you love olives, you’ll want to marry this oil.” O-MAU 500 ml $40 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

a love aFfair

Alziari from Nice

It's now been over two decades since I first fell in love with Alziari, the old shop in the historic center of Nice, on France’s Côte d’Azur. Their extra virgin olive oil is exceptional and typically Niçoise—light, flowery and elegant but still full of character and charisma. I could use the same phrase to describe the tin it comes in. It's such a beautiful package that it makes one of the best gifts from our catalog; it needs no wrapping. O-ALZ 1 liter tin $55 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

thE lemon oiL Of angels

Agrumato Lemon Oil Roasted Butternut Squash Oil This silky oil is made with squash seeds that are roasted and pressed. The first smell is a blast of fall, redolent of toasted pumpkin seeds and roasted nuts. Just a drizzle over a salad transports the dish. O-BSS 6.3 oz bottle $20 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

I keep imagining that if I went to heaven, I’d discover this to be the oil the angels put on their salads. Smooth and olive-y with a lemoniness that tickles your nose like the bubbles of a fine champagne. 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. You can do most anything with Agrumato lemon you’d do with other oils and then some. It’s fantastic brushed on top of almost any just-broiled fresh fish. O-AGR 200 ml bottle $35 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

WHat white “bAlsamic” shOUld BE Agrodolce White Balsamic Vinegar

Agrodolce is super smooth, light on the tongue, subtle and very, very long in the finish. You can use it in place of balsamic since it’s similarly soft and sweet. Wherever it’s employed, your cooking will be enhanced by one of the most elegant vinegars I’ve tried in a really long time. It’s crafted by Sante Bertoni on his family estate outside of Modena, Italy. Described as a bit of a mad scientist, Sr. Bertoni is giving the vinegar extra maturing just for us, making its flavor more complex before it hits your kitchen.

basque white vinegar

Txakoli White Wine Vinegar

The Txakoli wine, itself hard to find outside Basque country, is rarely made into vinegar. The vinegar is as rare as the albino rhinorceros. It's made by Emilio Lunegas, a devoted Basque wine maker. He decided to develop a vinegar from the traditional wine and broaden the recognition of the Basque region. Working with top-quality Txakoli made primarily from Hondarribi Zuri white grapes, as well as a bit from its cousin, the equally obscure black Hondarribi Beltza, Sr. Luengas and his colleagues make only about 1,200 liters of the vinegar in a year. The flavor is light, lovely, lingering. It’s not sweet, and there’s an airiness to it that makes it refreshing. It’s very nice on simple salads of most any sort. Exceptional with seafood—deglaze a pan after you sauté fish in it. Try it everywhere a recipe asks for white wine vinegar and you'll be happy you did. V-ODV 500 ml $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

Vecchia Dispensa's 10 Year Aged Balsamic Working in the center of the old town of Castelvetro, southwest of Modena, Italy, Roberta Pelloni and 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.” 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. Their 10 year aged balsamic is the most intensely flavored balsamic of its age I’ve ever tried. Its complexity, with rich flavors of oak, blackberry and dark fruit, is partly due to aging in very small batches. That allows more evaporation and contact with the barrel—both of which contribute to more intense flavors. V-10Y 250 ml bottle 10 year aged $35

Like cured and cooked meats. This is a collection of my favorites from our deli case. Just set out some cheese, vegetables, bread and some sliced meats for a satisfying feast. Our Zingerman's shopping bag includes a pound each of Pastrami, our Classic Black Angus Lean Corned Beef, Broadbent Sausage, Usinger’s Liverwurst, Nueske's Applewood Smoked Bacon, plus a Crespone Salami and La Quercia's Iowa White Cured Pork Spread. Over six pounds of cured cow and hog, rounded out with a loaf of Bacon Peppered Farm Bread. Requires a strong will not to overdo it. In case of excess, we’ll throw in some Alka Seltzer®. Everything freezes splendidly. G-BBM big box of meat $200 FREE ONE BUSINESS DAY OVERNIGHT SHIPPING

not-SO-simple syruP Rangpur Lime Syrup

This could be the Holy Grail of secret ingredients. Rangpur limes look more like mandarins than the little green citrus fruit we know, but their flavor is like a smoky lime. This syrup pours easily—like honey—and doesn’t leave sugar crystals as it dissolves in iced or hot drinks, making it excellent for cocktails. It’s become a stealth ingredient in my mojitos and margaritas. A Rangpur lime syrup gin and tonic, anyone? Not into gin? Add it to yogurt. Drizzle over grilled fish. Drop a splash in a vinaigrette. I could keep going. This one is fun and easy. From Robert Lambert, San Francisco’s resident citrus genius. P-LIM 5 oz bottle $15 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

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. Anyone whose made artichokes at home knows how much work one is—this jar has almost three dozen, all perfect. P-ART 175 g jar, about 30 artichokes $25 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

stones, not stEel

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 $13 SHIPS FOR FLAT RATE

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.

sIcilian seASide almonds

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 Pecorino Toscano (p. 20) is a great start to a meal. P-PZZ 7½ oz box $26

Mastiha from Chios is a sap syrup, kind of like maple syrup but crystallized with a very aromatic, utterly different flavor. It's great with this halva, made from sesame pasta and sugar.

(Eight) stone ground Raye’s Mustard

A smooth yellow mustard with crystal clear flavors, highly recommended. I think the most interesting part about J. W. Raye’s fourthgeneration operation in Eastport, Maine, is that the seeds are ground in the 105-year-old stone mill. It has a series of eight one-ton quartz grindstones that, though I haven’t seen them in person, must be a dramatic sight. As the mustard mash moves from stone to stone, it gets creamier without any addition of heat, which would drive off the aromatics and lessen the flavor. It’s put into large barrels and aged about four weeks to balance and deepen its flavor. Then it’s off to us. P-RAY 9 oz jar $7.50 SHIPS FOR 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. A staff and customer favorite, their 10 year aged balsamic (illustrated) is the most intensely flavored balsamic of its age I’ve ever tried. Its complexity, with rich flavors of oak, blackberry and dark fruit, is partly due to aging in very small batches. That allows more evaporation and contact with the barrel—both of which contribute to more intense flavors. Although aged for only 25 percent longer than the 8 year balsamic, the intensity of flavor is almost double. Highly recommended. V-10Y 250 ml bottle SAVE was $35 NOW $25
