From GQ Magazine:
Drink like a chef
Take a look behind a serious bar these days and you'd think you were
walking the aisles at Whole Foods: Kaffir-lime leaves, pomegranate
molasses, pickled vegetables, and even balsamic vinegar are but a
few of the upscale products being called into service by your better
bartenders. Assuming you are not ready to brew your own bitters or
cure some manzanilla olives, here are five easy-to-use ingredients
that will immediately upgrade your cocktails:
'Fabbri Amarena Cherries' from A Taste of Italy Foods (www.atasteofitalyfoods.com)
Amaro means "bitter" in Italian, and the amarena cherry,
which grows throughout the Mediterranean region and usually comes
packed in sugar syrup with a touch of brandy, boasts pleasing tartness
and a deep ruby color. The industry standard comes from Fabbri, a
classic Italian confectioner based in Bologna. Spoon a few of them
(with a touch of the syrup) into a Manhattan or old-fashioned.
November 2008 edition
fun of traveling is sinking your teeth into the foods of a new country
or region. Beignets and chicory coffee are as much a part of New Orleans
as Mardi Gras beads, and who can resist French pastries when traveling
abroad? But if travel isnt in the plans this holiday season, there
are plenty of Web sites that can bring the tastes of travel to you,
wherever you live.
A TASTE OF ITALY FOODS
Italy creates so many fabulous food memories that its impossible
to cover them all: Start with the Italian semolina pastas, far from
your standard elbow macaroni. Move on to the pesto, whole tomatoes to
be made into sauce, and the authentic balsamic vinegar. Or make a meal
of the garlicky salami and your favorite cheese from provolone
to parmigiano reggiano. Gift baskets are offered at the stores
parent site, A Taste of Italy.com.
