Tastebuds’ delight - Esther’s Best (Kehilla Kashrus, parve) has created a line of dressings that will makes salads mouth-watering delicious. Born in a restaurant called Gio Cafe in Brooklyn, these gourmet handmade dressings are filled with 100% fresh ingredients. With no preservatives added, the dressings have a six-week shelf life, but they are so yummy you’ll find the bottle empty within a few days. The all-time favorite in my house is the Caesar dressing – so rich and creamy and filled with flavor you’ll keep checking the bottle to make sure it’s really parve. Each time I buy it I make sure to buy three to four bags of salad mix because dinner that night is just an excuse to eat the dressing. We also enjoyed the Greek House Salad with the taste of olives and the delicious Balsamic dressing with a hint of sweetness. My brother-in-law is a cumin lover and he called the Cumin dressing first-rate. There are nine flavors all together, and the dressings can be found in groceries around Brooklyn, parts of New Jersey and in the Five Towns. For more information, contact them at 718-375-5437.
Do you love cookies and brownies, but can’t eat them because of a low carb diet? We had the same problem in our house. Then we found Glenny’s (Kof-K, parve) Slim Carb fresh baked products. This all-natural line includes sugar free cookies in chocolate chip, almond and shortbread flavors. My grandmother has a recipe for almond cookies without flour that we make all the time – since we found these Glenny’s cookies, I’ve stopped baking. Filled with lots of flavor – and no after-taste – these cookies are worth a trip to the store. They also have delicious sugar free, low carb fudge brownies and peanut butter brownies that make a great snack with a cup of coffee or tea. Where can you find them? Keep checking with your local grocery, as the line is pretty new and may not be available everywhere yet. You can also visit them on the web at glennys.com
What says party better than a container of sour pickles? How about a container of Gus’ pickles (United Pickle, OU parve)? Those of you who have spent time on the Lower East Side of Manhattan know that the smell of Gus’ pickles permeates the streets. But did you know that you could buy Gus’ pickles just by going to the grocery? And not just pickles – United Pickle, the oldest continually operating pickle company in New York, makes more than just the traditional sour or half-sour pickle. We sampled olives, pickled onions, pickled tomatoes, sweet peppers, relish and much more. The taste of old world New York comes alive in every bite. So, as you make your shopping list for Chanukah, be sure to pick up a Lower East Side staple – a container of pickles from United Pickle.
Have a wonderful Chanukah!
