For aiolis, the flavors we have run the gamut from maple bacon to “everything.”

For some, this is the main reason they crave a burger. TRY THIS: Randy’s Pickles including one called Sideburns featuring grilled crunchy dill pickles.

Build an Ice Cream Sundae Board in 3 Easy Steps

In our homes, each sundae is unique depending on who is building them. This is why we are in love with the ice cream sundae board! Not only is it stunning, but it’s the perfect way for everyone to create something they’ll enjoy and to make your sundae night at home something special. Scoop up some different flavors of ice cream, add rich sauces, sweet and salty toppings, and all sorts of goodies for your ice cream masterpieces. The best part? These boards are 100% customizable and can be made in 3 easy steps!

3 Steps to Creating a Spectacular Ice Cream Sundae Board

STEP 1: SELECT YOUR ICE CREAM FLAVORS

To build our sundae board, we’re starting with the base for any great sundae—ice cream. From basic flavors, like chocolate and strawberry, to goodie filled favorites, like cookies and cream and rocky road, your ice cream choices will set your board building in motion. Tip: choose a few different flavors of ice cream to give your board some variety.

STEP 2: CHOOSE YOUR SAUCES

Sauce is a key component of any sundae. Some of our go-tos include Fran’s dessert sauces. Certified Fairtrade, organic, non-GMO, and gluten free, they are made with simple ingredients and deliver incredible flavor. Another must-have is DLM Sea Salt Caramel Sauce. This sauce is luxurious and the perfect combination of sweet and salty. You can also dress your ice cream in its Sunday best with the oh-so chocolatey Sundaes Best Hot Fudge Sauces. Look for these in stores and online at shop.DorothyLane.com.

STEP 3: ADD YOUR FAVORITE TOPPINGS

Now’s the time for your creativity to shine! Embellish your board with a pop of color using oodles of vibrant sprinkles and Parisian Macarons that are handcrafted and filled with rich ganache. Need a salty component? DLM Extra-Large Peanuts add a savory note and a delightful crunch. Killer Brownie® Bites take your sundae board to new heights with their three layers of sheer deliciousness. And the combination of crispy graham crackers cloaked in chocolate makes DLM Chocolate Covered Graham Crackers a sundae board must-have. Look for these toppings and more in stores and online at shop.DorothyLane.com.

You Can Also Ship the Ultimate Indulgence: Killer Brownie® Sundae Kit!

Four of the Original Killer Brownie® meet DLM Sea Salt Caramel and Fran’s Dark Chocolate Sauce in this kit. Top it all off with Tillen Farms Bada Bing Cherries. Harvested, pitted, and packed at the peak of ripeness, these are twice the size of maraschino cherries and the perfect finishing touch for your sundaes. Look for this kit at shop.DorothyLane.com.

The Art of Making Mozzarella

Stir. Stretch. Shape. There’s an art of making mozzarella that’s satisfyingly beautiful as our DLM Fresh Handmade Mozzarella takes its final form. It’s a symphony of technique, rhythmic stretching that results in the classic composition of simple ingredients yielding a final masterpiece. “There is mozzarella. And then there is fresh mozzarella,” says Erika Cuellar, The DLM Cheese Shop Manager at our Washington Square location. “We believe in providing the freshest product possible … so we make it in-house.” This is why in 2006, we studied, we experimented, and we decided to distinguish ourselves by regularly making mozzarella by hand. This is the DLM Difference.

 

THE ART OF MAKING MOZZARELLA

A SYMPHONY OF TECHNIQUE

If you’re lucky to stroll past our Cheese Shop at the right time, you’ll see this process with your own eyes as you round the corner to find one of our cheesemongers gently stretching about 10 pounds of curd into warm, buttery mozzarella.

Legend has it that this soft, moist cheese was first created by happenstance in Italy when curd fell into a pail of boiling water. If that’s the case, then we will certainly call it a happy accident. Fresh mozzarella has a milky taste and contains 52% moisture or higher. We start by warming water to just about boiling. Then, we begin soaking the curd.

After breaking down the curd into small pieces, it’s then given warm water baths. When you ask Maritza Cuellar-Crowdy, who manages The DLM Cheese Shop at our Springboro location, questions like “how long does it sit in the water?” or “how do you know when it’s ready to stretch,” the answer is not as clear-cut as one may think. It’s a marriage of intuition and technique, with our cheesemongers conducting the process. “Mozzarella is about timing and the actual stretching of it,” Maritza explains. “We focus on how it feels … not how it looks.”

After the curd feels ready, what ensues is perhaps the most important step. The stretching. To watch is soothing and inexplicably beautiful. It’s amazing to see how with each slow, deliberate movement, the actual consistency of the cheese changes. “If you overstretch it, it’ll be tough. If you don’t stretch it enough, you won’t get that smooth consistency,” Maritza says. “If you let it sit too long (before stretching), it’ll change your end result. Timing and stretching go hand in hand.”

Watching our cheesemongers stretch mozzarella is like watching a violinist shift their bow back and forth, truly the art of making mozzarella. Then, just like that, it’s ready.

SHAPING SOMETHING MARVELOUS

After the consistency is just right, the next step is to shape it into ovalini, ciliengine, and snackable sticks, and getting it closer to being ready for our wonderful customers. Each freshly shaped mozzarella then sits in a salty brine before it’s packaged and ready to hit the shelves in The DLM Cheese Shop.

The ovalini are perfect for slicing and layering onto your pizza, sandwich, or creating that quintessential caprese salad—Erika’s favorite. Caprese is composed of freshly sliced tomato (like the local ones that are here now), fresh basil, and handmade mozzarella all finished with a drizzle of Vera Jane’s Extra-Virgin Olive Oil and our DLM Aged Balsamic Vinegar of Modena. Nothing quite compares to this summertime classic. Find Chef Carrie’s recipes for variations of this classic dish here!

Ciliengine are the size of cherry tomatoes and you’ll find them pre-packed with about eight to a container. These are the perfect bite-sized shape to add to many popular salad or pasta recipes. Or, there are several fun summer kebab snacks. You’ll also find our handmade fresh mozzarella logs, or sticks, for the mozzarella lover on the go.

Regardless of which shape you choose, we can guarantee that what you take home from DLM is something that is truly a food experience, from the creation of it to the end product that we’ve lovingly made for your plate. “When we say ‘fresh,’ we want you to see that we mean fresh,” says Maritza. It’s that commitment to providing a deeper experience to the food that provides us with the greatest joy and sense of pride.

Our DLM Fresh Handmade Mozzarella is Available in stores and at Shop.DorothyLane.com.

We hope you’ll enjoy these new food finds as much as we do!

TOP 10 NEW FOOD FINDS

1. Benton’s Hickory Smoked Country Bacon

Being in business since 1947, Benton’s has mastered the art of dry-curing hams and bacon building a delicious reputation. From their humble beginnings as simple breakfast go-tos, Benton’s meats have erupted in the gourmet cooking world receiving high praises for their incredible flavor. Their bacon is dry-cured by hand with salt, brown sugar, and black pepper. After being cured and dried, it’s then smoked in-house for two to three days, and hand-packed on site. The amount of time and care put into preparing this new food find radiates in each deliciously smoky bite.

2. Burlap and Barrel Spices

Through forging strong relationships with smallholder farmers, Burlap & Barrel is able to support their view of sustainability (improving the livelihood of these farmers) and to source unique foods and quality spices, many of which haven’t been available in the U.S. previously. These spices are designed for professional chefs and home cooks alike. Burlap & Barrel Black Urfa Chili is great on kebabs, chicken, beef, lamb, hummus, brownies, pasta, roasted vegetables, or eggs. In southeastern Turkey, you will find black Urfa chili on almost every table. Burlap & Barrel Smoked Pimentón Paprika is mighty delicious on popcorn, in paella, mixed with salt and cumin as a meat seasoning or rub, or any way you traditionally enjoy paprika. We love adding Burlap & Barrel Wild Mountain Cumin to rubs for meats and vegetables or curry powder as it has a savory, beautiful aroma and umami flavor. Zanzibar black pepper is grown organically and Burlap & Barrel are the exclusive importers of Zanzibar black pepper to the US. We recommend using Burlap & Barrel Zanzibar Black Peppercorns on everything from pastas, salads, sauces, roasted vegetables, and grilled meats. Burlap & Barrel Royal Cinnamon is the same species as Saigon cinnamon, but Royal Cinnamon is an heirloom variety not widely harvested or exported. It is sun dried to bring out its sweet and spicy profile and tasting notes of brown butter, buckwheat honey, and orange peel. We recommend using these new food finds in baked goods, coffee, oatmeal, yogurt, or smoothies.

3. Ritrovo Selections

With a sofi™ Gold Award under their belt, Ritrovo Selections has an excellent selection of products to choose from. We can’t seem to get enough of their Truffle & Salt, a fragrant and flavorful combination of Italian black truffle and sea salt. As if that seasoning could get any better, they now offer Truffle & Salt & Cheese, adding Parmigiano-Reggiano into the mix. Both of these are great on popcorn, veggies, and just about anything!

4. Lillie Q’s Seasoning Rubs

Add great flavor to your BBQ with Lillie’s Q Rubs. Their Carolina Dirt BBQ Rub is the perfect sugar-based rub for slow-cooked, unbeatable flavor. Pro tip: use it as a seasoning for fries or roasted potatoes. Lillie’s Q Brisket Pepper is the ideal grind size to season your Texas-style brisket. Or, try using it in any recipe that calls for a large pepper grind. Lillie’s Q Q-Rub is an all-purpose salt-based rub with a dash of black pepper and garlic. It’s extremely versatile and very flavorful!

6. This Little Goat Went To

Chef Stephanie Izard wears many hats including Top Chef, Iron Chef, James Beard award winner, and Executive Chef of Girl & the Goat restaurant in Chicago, where these delicious sauces and seasonings were first inspired. After guests continued to rave over a side of green beans and the sauce that made this dish so addictive, Stephanie decided to bottle and sell that sauce so customers could enjoy it in the comfort of their own home. From there, the This Little Goat Went to line of sauces and seasonings grew, taking on new flavor combinations and profiles that are reminiscent of the flavors you’d find in the countries and regions they represent. Enjoy a variety of seasonings like, This Little Goat Went to Belize, This Little Goat Went to Cuba, This Little Goat Went to GrillVille, This Little Goat Went to India, and This Little Goat Went to Morocco.

7. Le Bon Magot

Another great addition to our new food finds is Le Bon Magot. Food has a way of allowing us to travel to various parts of the world, enjoying every culinary experience along the way. Le Bon Magot products are crafted with natural ingredients and high-quality, seasonal produce using traditional cooking methods and all-natural preservation methods. Le Bon Magot Lemon-Sultana Marmalata is a fragrant blend of golden sultanas (raisins), Afghan saffron, licorice-scented caraway, citrusy lemon, and Wolffer Estate Vineyard’s verjus that is reminiscent of dried fruit preserves of Turkey. One of our favorite accompaniments, we suggest you pair it with goat or sheep’s milk cheeses, chicken, salmon, and charcuterie boards. Or, try mixing in yogurt, topping toast, or folding in a crepe. Le Bon Magot White Pumpkin and Almond Murabba (preserves) with cardamom and vanilla is a recipe that dates back thousands of years from Southern Mediterranean to India. These preserves layer Indian long gourd and almonds, scented with cardamom, cinnamon, and vanilla. The scents and aromas will evoke festivity, and you will love these new food finds so much you’ll slather it on everything from soft cheeses, toasted bread, and chicken to wild game, yogurt, figs, and ice cream. A flavorful combination of tomatoes, white sultanas, and Kashmiri chilies, Le Bon Magot Tomato and White Sultana Chutney is flavorful and versatile as it makes a great addition to a charcuterie board, scrambled eggs, and generously smeared on toasted ciabatta.

The DLM Difference: Brentlinger’s Sweet Corn

The sound of towering corn husks rustling in the wind on a July morning is the music of nature at its best. Once the harvest starts later this month, Ray Brentlinger, a local farmer whose beautiful land sprawls in New Carlisle, Ohio, will wake early to meet his crew and get picking. Afterwards, he heads to Dorothy Lane Market with a truckload of corn, making deliveries to each of our stores. He always greets us with a chuckle and we part ways with his sweet corn in hand, still damp with morning dew. This continues daily until the season subsides.

As our local sweet corn season nears (we can almost taste it), we feel a deep sense of appreciation for Ray and everyone at Brentlinger Farm. Not only does Ray sell exclusively to DLM besides his local farmstand, but our relationship with his family is our longest-standing local tie to any farm. In 1978, DLM founder Calvin D. Mayne first bought sweet corn from Ray Brentlinger’s father. We are so grateful for friends like the Brentlingers, who have truly mastered the art of growing farm fresh sweet corn. If there’s anything we can count on this summer, it’s local treasures like this.

Sweet Corn Cooking Tips & Tricks

There’s no better way to celebrate summer than with Brentlinger’s Sweet Corn. Nothing beats corn on the cob served steaming HOT with all the fixins’ (Don’t forget our new DLM Salted Artisan Butter). Here are 3 ways to cook your corn!

 

 

This is the classic way! First, take off the husks and silks. Using a taller stock pot, fill it with enough water to cover the corn. Bring corn to a boil and cook for 5-10 minutes. Use tongs to remove corn, serve hot, and add your choice of toppings.

 

 

Yep, you read that right! This is a great option if you are doing just an ear or two. First, rinse corn and leave it in the husk. Then, microwave two at a time on high for 4-6 minutes. The corn will steam in the husk. Remove from microwave with oven mitts—they will be hot. Let them cool enough to handle, and then strip off the husk and silk. It’s so easy!

 

 

Now this is my favorite. Roasting corn on the grill gives it a nice smoky flavor. Peel back the husk and remove the silk, leaving each husk attached at the stem. Brush the cobs with olive oil and cover the corn back up with the husks. You can secure them closed with a piece of aluminum foil. Roast the ears of corn over a medium to hot grill, occasionally turning until the outer husks are charred and toasted. It takes about 15 minutes. Let cool enough to strip back the husk and bite in!

The DLM Difference: Prima® Peaches

If you’re like me, one of the things you love about summertime is all the fresh fruit we have at peak condition. Think fragrant, juicy melons, plump plums, and nectarines. Nature’s candy jar of fruit is overflowing. For many years here at Dorothy Lane Market, we’ve brought in something so wonderful and perfect for summer that we call it a “PARTY” when it arrives and we celebrate its flavor. What is this summertime food that’s so good it has us grinning from ear to ear? Peaches! But we’re not talking just any peach, we’re celebrating the Prima® Peach! They’re so sweet and juicy, you may not even notice the delightful nectar running down your chin. It makes my mouth water just thinking of that first bite … so delicious! Enjoy!

Prima® Peaches Are Perfect As-Is

They’re also great cooked (try poaching, baking, and even grilling) or over top of a salad. when cooked, the sugar caramelizes resulting in an even sweeter peach!

**Always rinse you peaches in clean water, rubbing the skin gently with your hands or a vegetable brush right before you’re ready to eat or prepare them.

Why We Love Prima® Peaches

  • Tree-Ripened to Peachy Perfection

Tree-ripened means that these peaches are left on the tree longer and picked at their peak to maximize sweetness (aka a high Brix). This also results in a superb mouthfeel.

**Did you Know: Although harvesting prematurely ensures less blemishes on a peach, it will never reach its ultimate sweetness. Great care is taken with each tree-ripened Prima® Peach after they are picked to preserve the peaches’ integrity.

  • Premium Packaging

Prima® Peaches arrive individually cradled in a special single-layer box to protect the prized fruit within. Each box is then personally signed by the individual who packed it.

  • 12+ Brix Level

Brix is a way to measure the innate sweetness. All Peach Party Prima® Peaches have a Brix level of 12 or greater!

  • Making the Grade

Once a Prima® Peach is carefully harvested, it is also graded. A very small percentage will make the cut to be sent to our Peach Party.

 

Check the Sign

When the tree-ripened peaches arrive at DLM, our Produce managers carefully inspect them once more and measure the Brix. Check our Brix sign to see what it is today!

Look for “Ready Today” & “Ready Tomorrow” signs on our Peach Party display so you can plan your peach feast accordingly. We recommend that you utilize our sign system when picking your peaches.

**Look for products throughout DLM, from the Bakery to the Deli, featuring this sweet summer fruit! Get a sneak peek at some of the peachy products we have during our Peach Party.
