New York Krista Garcia 1 comment

Unusual flavors like blue cheese, salmon and white pepper asparagus have grabbed a little media attention at this Park Slope ice cream shop. But most of the gelati, which are creamy with a light quality, and sorbets, about 16 in total, are less radical. More

At their creamery in Long Valley, New Jersey, Valley Shepherd makes a sheep's milk cheese called Shepherd's Basket. It's made from raw (unpasteurized) milk in traditional manchego basket molds and has a flavor profile that mimics the Spanish cheese: sharp, salty, buttery, and dense. More

First Look: Leske's Bakery, Brooklyn, NY

Sweets Lauren Rothman 4 comments

Leske's is a bakery with a history. Opened in 1961, the bakery's German owners catered to the tastes of their mostly Scandinavian Bay Ridge neighbors by offering traditional Nordic-style pastries such as kringler, bear claws, and kanelbullar. After closing in 2011, Leske's was bought by new owners who reopened the Bay Ridge location and, most recently, opened a second shop on Fifth Avenue in Park Slope. We stopped by the new location to try pastries old and new. More

Date Night: Kiwiana, New Zealander Cooking from 'Top Chef's' Marc Simmons

New York Jessica Allen and Garrett Ziegler 10 comments

Being on TV is a little like being in prison. Do either, and for the rest of your life people will find a way to work it into any bio. Kiwiana's chef-owner Marc Simmons appeared on season 4 of Top Chef in 2008 as the goofy guy who took a semi-clothed bath with one of his housemates. That Marc may be gone, but even as he's grown up, the food at his New Zealand restaurant in Park Slope shows a determined tendency toward the sweet earnestness of youth. More
