In this installment of our Market Picks, we’re delighted to share a fantastic selection of new products with you—some of them from right here in New York City and some that we’ve brought from small-batch producers around the country—along with information about what makes them so special.
We use Pain D’Avignon’s crusty and airy pane francese to lend some welcome heft to this light but flavor-packed meal and to help soak up all the juices from the ripe, peak-season tomatoes, but any rustic peasant bread or sourdough would work here.
This recipe was created with the unbelievably fresh, Brooklyn-made mozzarella from our friends at Lioni in mind. Their creamy, decadent cheese is the perfect foil to sweet and juicy peaches, which are gently tossed with vinaigrette and then elegantly arranged with the mozzarella and fresh herbs.
The tender, sweet shrimp in this dish cook in just over 2 minutes, and then get tossed with a creamy, zesty, mayo-based dressing and piled onto crunchy romaine lettuce before being packed into fluffy potato rolls.
Well, we’ve got the answer! Take advantage of the best in-season produce with our delicious and ridiculously easy corn salad. Candy-sweet summer corn is the star of this recipe, which uses crisp fennel, roasted cherry tomatoes, crunchy radishes, and fragrant basil for a more sophisticated take on the classic corn salad.
If you’re tired of the same old grilling recipes then we have just the thing for you. These scallop and veggie skewers are delicious, easy to make, and a welcome change from the usual, uninspired grilling fare. READ MORE
Start with some beautiful slices of sourdough bread, grilled just enough so that they’re crisp on the outside and still chewy within. Smear with a creamy and zesty mixture of goat cheese, sundried tomatoes, and mint, and top with thinly sliced honeydew melon and a scattering of toasted pistachios.
First things first: no Mother’s Day is complete without flowers, and we have bouquets upon bouquets of beautiful blooms from Long Island’s Dutch Petals that are bound to make Mom’s day much brighter.
While there’s no shortage of delicious things to make out of these wild green onions (like pesto for starters), we can’t think of any better way to showcase the funky, sweet, oniony flavors of this seasonal treat than in a gorgeous tangle of perfectly cooked linguine with ramps, clams, smoked bacon, and a scattering of crunchy breadcrumbs.
