Enjoying Antonio Mattei Biscotti is like enjoying a piece of history. Thought of as the standard of all biscotti throughout Tuscany, this Tuscan treat is the real deal. It’s still made today with simple ingredients and then hand-shaped in the same historic bakery where it all began. Once the dough is baked in the oven, it’s sliced giving it the classic biscotti shape, then put back in the oven to achieve that perfectly crunchy texture. You can find these cookies packed in their iconic blue paper bags tied with their traditional string (the same way they’ve been packaging biscotti for over 100 years).

Holiday Cozy Comforts: Charcuterie at Home

After all the shopping, planning, cooking, wrapping, and decorating, it’s finally time to close the door and dig into cozy time spent with your loved ones to enjoy it all. This is why I like to balance out my more elaborate meals with some no-stress, no-cooking ideas to have on tap for the holidays. Not quite ready for dinner or don’t feel like making another fussy meal? Open up a good bottle of wine and set out a charcuterie board with some holiday touches. Happy holidays to you (and me)!

 

4 STEPS TO BUILD A CHARCUTERIE BOARD

STEP 1: Start by placing small bowls or ramekins on your board or platter. These are for things like nuts, olives, mustards, dips, etc. We like to use Marcona Almonds, Edmond Fallot Mustard, and L’Épicurien Jams.

STEP 2: Place your cheeses and crackers or flatbreads that pair together near them. When choosing your cheeses, think about varying the textures and flavors from buttery to nutty, creamy to hard. DLM Cheesemonger Maritza Cuellar-Crowdy has a fun way to set the framework for her board. “… I think of a rhyme I once learned. Something old, something new, something goat, and something blue.” Some of our go-to selections include Parmigiano-Reggiano that’s complex in flavor and studded with crunchy crystals, bold, sharp Barber’s 1833 Vintage Cheddar, velvety and creamy Saint Angel Brie, Le Papillon Roquefort, which has a big personality and wonderful flavor, and bright, tangy Laura Chenel Fresh Chévre.

STEP 3: Add cured meats. We recommend using a variety of Alexian Pâté, Columbus-based North Country Charcuterie, Niman Ranch Charctuerie, Trois Petits Cochons Saucisson Sec Sausage, Fra’ Mani Soppressata, and Prosciutto di Parma.

STEP 4: Place dried or fresh fruits (like grapes, berries, and pomegranate), pickled veggies, and a few sprigs of fresh rosemary. Fill any gaps and arrange to your liking so that a variety of colors and textures show through. It makes eating all the more fun!

 

Look for gourmet gifts that ship, like our Charcuterie and Cheese Board.

You’ll never regret stocking up on old-fashioned candy canes like the handmade varieties from Hammond’s, imported European cookies, candies, Yoder’s Peanut Brittle, and an assortment of chocolate covered pretzels and popcorn from our Holiday Display.

For me, nothing is as cozy or melts the icy chill of the winter air after a brisk walk or round of snow shoveling like a steaming mug of our DLM Handmade Hot Cocoa Mix, made by us with rich cocoa powder and disks of French chocolate that melt right in. You also can’t go wrong grabbing some festive Thumbprint Cookies or Servatti Pastry Shop Stollen in our Bakery.

Constantly on the move as adventure beckoned them, French couple Isabelle and Bruno, along with their kids, always brought a piece of home with them as they travelled—biscuits. Their love of these cookies and desire to share them with others drove them to create this line of French biscuits. Hand-selected ingredients used in traditional recipes and made by the very best biscuit makers, Oui Love It! Biscuits are made in France and quite delicious. The Boudoirs are soft and they melt in your mouth. Because of their texture, they’re not only great on their own, but also in Tiramisu. You can’t get much better than Palets Bretons. These round, crumbly biscuits are made with an indulgent amount of butter making them simply irresistible. Oui Love It! Palmiers have a stunning appearance and an equally scrumptious flavor. They’re light and airy with a delightful crunch. Sablés Coco are made from sweet shortcrust pastry. When these cookies are made, cold butter is added to flour and sugar, then rubbed together until all the flour and sugar is coated with butter. This process gives these biscuits an incredible texture making it hard to eat only one.

3. Eat This Yum! Jams & Preserves

Located in Bucks County, Erwinna, Pennsylvania, Eat This Yum! is family-owned, focusing on all-natural, fruit-forward flavors.

Uncured Bacon Marmalade with Orange and Balsamic Caramelized Onion is filled with oranges, balsamic caramelized onions, roasted garlic, fresh thyme, and lots of bacon, of course! Slather this marmalade on burgers, grilled cheese, or paninis. The Seedless Blackberry Rosemary Jam is bursting with sweet yet tart blackberry goodness along with aromatic rosemary, making it the perfect choice for serving with creamy cheeses, lamb, and sea bass. Or, try using it as a base for a vinaigrette. Savory and slightly sweet flavors meet in Eat This Yum! Tomato Jalapeño Marmalade. This zingy spread is delicious with freshly grilled shrimp, poured over Brie, or spread on a ham sandwich. Sweet strawberries, bright citrus, and comforting lavender combine to create the Strawberry Lemon Lavender Preserves. We love this jam with cottage cheese, yogurt, ice cream, and even just on toasted DLM Artisan Bread. The delightful combination of rich flavors in the Eat This Yum! Balsamic Caramelized Onions is a great addition to paninis and burgers. Blueberry Cardamom Preserve has a wonderful blueberry flavor that when partnered with the cardamom and a little garlic is the ideal choice for a finishing sauce for duck. Spiced Caramel Pear Jam screams fall as it’s filled with delicate pear flavor along with nutmeg, allspice, and cinnamon. Add to your cheese board alongside blue cheese and brie, or get create and use for thumbprint cookies.

Throughout this holiday treat, you’ll find chocolate morsels and a rich ripple of chocolate filling. Turning up the decadent dial, Loison also has Panettone Carmello Salato that not only has chocolate chunks mixed throughout, but it’s stuffed with salted caramel cream. Although Loison is well-known for their incredible panettone, they also produce biscuits. The Pera Biscuits are rich, perfectly crunchy, and have a surprisingly fresh flavor due to the addition of pear. Loison Albicocca Biscuits are made with apricot, giving the cookie a lovely aroma and a delightful sweetness. Look for these exquisitely wrapped Italian treasures in stores and online, while supplies last.

5. North Country Charcuterie

Found locally in Columbus, Ohio, North Country Charcuterie is a family-owned company that handmakes cured meats and salamis. Using humanely raised Berkshire pork and ingredients from Ohio producers, they’re able to create excellent products. No 1 Salami is the richest and creamiest salami of the North Country collection. It is boldly flavored with cheese from Blue Jacket Dairy in Bellefontaine, Ohio, Chardonnay from Debonne Vineyards in Madison, Ohio, chopped garlic, and fresh sage. Subtly flavored with Tripel from Combustion Brewery in Pickerington, Tripel Pigs Salami is their most traditional salami with an American twist. Lupo Salami is deep, dark, and mysterious. North Country artisans combine Russian Imperial Stout from Wolf’s Ridge Brewing in Columbus, Ohio, with Mexican mole to create a rich, bold flavor. Fino Salami is an ode to the owner’s mom and her love of garlic. This Finocchiona-style salami is a delicate balance of ground fennel and minced garlic. The Rojizo Chorizo is an intriguing fusion of European traditions and flavors like hot paprika, cayenne, and chipotle without overwhelming heat. Hoguera Spreadable Chorizo is best enjoyed on a baguette or added to a favorite Spanish recipe. This Sobrasada with its hot paprika, chipotle, and cayenne hits your tongue with a sultry surprise and fiery finish. They use synthetic casings for this link. All of these are best served at room temperature. The white mold on the outside is edible and natural, but you can peel it off before serving.

Boldly going where no other hot sauces have gone before, Bravado Spice Co. crafts unique hot sauces that are bold, blending heat and flavor in perfect harmony. Their Jalapeño & Green Apple Hot Sauce composed of green apple, poblano pepper, and jalapeño pepper is fairly mild and is an excellent addition to omelets, pulled pork, and seafood. Try drizzling in your guacamole for an irresistible sweet heat. Pineapple & Habanero Hot Sauce is exploding with pineapple flavor and nice heat from the habanero peppers, but it’s well balanced and goes great with pork, chicken, and seafood. We love adding it to marinades. Bravado Spice Co. Crimson Hot Sauce is a go-to sauce for just about anything—a true hot sauce MVP. If you love Tabasco, you need to try this! Pour liberally on wings, tacos, pizza, and fried chicken (it goes great on just about everything).

We can’t get enough of Bravado Spice Co. Ghost Pepper & Blueberry Hot Sauce! Great heat and just the right amount of blueberry flavor makes this hot sauce a true showstopper. Because of the blueberry’s slightly sweet taste, we recommend pairing this sauce with your eggs and bacon, duck, and red meats. The Creamy Herb and Jalapeño Hot Sauce is made with savory herbs, fresh jalapeños, garlic, and olive oil forging into the ultimate creamy green sauce. We suggest pairing it with grilled steak, roasted chicken, pork loin, salmon, grilled zucchini & squash, oysters, empanadas, and fried plantains. And don’t think Bravado forgot about Italian dishes.

It’s bright with citrus, melon, mango, and berry flavors with a raw sugar finish, as the coffee is honey processed alongside the family’s organic fruit farm.

9. Lick My Spoon Confections Chocolate Bars

Without formal training, but a passion for creating the best confections possible, Kristine Insalaco-Gaioni dabbled in making traditional Italian sweets and caramel sauce. Through trial and error she perfected her caramel sauce and passed it out to friends. After receiving rave reviews, Kristine decided to enter her caramel sauce in the Good Food Awards in San Francisco where her sauce won the hearts of the judges. The name for the caramel sauce, Lick My Spoon, came naturally as the judges and friends who tasted her sauce would literally lick the spoon. After her caramel sauce became a hit, she decided to dive into working with chocolate. This desire to learn led her to training in Milan with a master pastry chef, working her way to the title of chocolatier. Lick My Spoon Confections chocolate bars have crave-worthy and unique flavor combinations that we just love. The Orange Cardamom Spice Bar, composed of white chocolate that’s blended with candied orange peel, cardamom spice, and pistachio almond nougatine, is not only one of our favorites, but it also is a Good Food Award Winner 2020.

2. Capriole O’Banon Goat Cheese

Capriole farm in Greenville, Indiana, began with one family’s journey to an old, run-down farm in southern Indiana. The buildings may have weathered, but Larry and Judy Schad looked at the land as an opportunity to rebuild the foundations of the farm. By 1988 they had kept several goats, preserving, canning, and making cheese out of their milk for their friends and family. Fast forward to today, Capriole is now producing goat cheese of extraordinary quality, including Capriole O’Banon. Wrapped in Bourbon-soaked chestnut leaves, it has a quite stunning presentation.

Try serving this tuna cold in salads, cold pasta, or tossed with vegetables for a wonderful light dish. Ritrovo Selections Tuna Chunks with Potatoes and Rosemary in Olive Oil is a great addition to niçoise-style salads, pasta dishes, or served with beans for a protein rich dish.

Inspired by the simple, homemade peanut butter he loved in Africa, Mark, co-founder of Big Spoon Roasters, started roasting nuts and milling them into fresh nut butters in his home kitchen. As his excitement and passion grew, Mark and his wife, Megan, decided to start Big Spoon Roasters to share their nut butters with others. They only source ingredients from trusted farms and producers, many of who organically farm and focus on sustainable agriculture. We love the variety of nut butter flavors they have to offer. Maple Cinnamon Peanut and Pecan Butter combines fresh-roasted, coarsely milled peanuts and pecans with Vermont Maple Syrup, Vietnamese Saigon Cinnamon and Jacobsen Sea Salt to create Big Spoon Roasters Maple Cinnamon Nut Butter. Some say this butter is reminiscent of pecan pie spiked with maple and cinnamon. We recommend enjoying this on toast, PB&J sandwiches as well as in sauces, cookies and smoothies. Big Spoon Roasters Chai Spice Nut Butter combines a Masala Chai blend of cardamom, cloves, ginger, cinnamon, vanilla, and black pepper, which is slowly mixed with freshly milled peanuts and almonds before adding raw, organic cane sugar, raw wildflower honey, and sea salt to create a bright, complex burst of flavor in every spoon. Enjoy on toast, PB&J sandwiches (of course with your favorite DLM bread) apples, or use in recipes, smoothies and sauces or your biggest spoon. Big Spoon Roasters Toasted Coconut Almond Butter with Sea Salt is handmade from fresh-roasted heirloom Mission variety almonds, crispy toasted coconut flakes, raw organic coconut crystals, and hand-harvested sea salt to create a decadent, naturally sweet, irresistible nut butter reminiscent of homemade coconut macaroons. We recommend slathering it on our DLM Artisan breads for the best peanut butter sandwich. Big Spoon Roasters Peanut Pecan Nut Butter combines Peanuts, Pecans, Raw Wildflower Honey and Jacobsen Sea Salt. The result is a rich, buttery, sweet and very addictive nut butter. Enjoy on toast, PB&J sandwiches (of course with your favorite DLM bread) apples, use in recipes, smoothies and sauces or your biggest spoon. Big Spoon Roasters Chocolate Sea Salt Nut Butter blends freshly milled, fresh-roasted heirloom Mission variety almonds with stone-ground organic dark chocolate from TCHO, cocoa nibs from Escazu Artisan Chocolates, raw wildflower honey and a touch of Jacobsen sea salt to create a toasty, luscious dark chocolate almond butter with the perfect amount of crunch. This is a chocolate lover’s almond butter. Enjoy on toast or PB&J sandwiches (of course with your favorite DLM bread), in desserts and smoothies or your biggest spoon.

2. Molino 100% Picaul Extra Virgin Olive Oil

food finds

The Garcia-Casas family has had generations of experience harvesting olive trees in Spain and in 2005, they started producing olive oil of exceptional quality. Controlling the entire process from grove to mill to bottle, they are able to ensure the quality never wavers. Molino 100% Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil is harvested in mid-November at peak ripeness resulting in a low acidity level. This olive oil is a great choice for sautéing, frying, or poaching, but with its aromas of banana, tomato, and a cayenne pepper finish, we love it drizzled on tomato dishes, salads, salmon, and pasta.

3. DLM Artisan Chocolate Bars

Here at DLM, we love great food and sometimes a collaboration is just natural as it is with our dear friend, Master Chef Ghyslain Maurais … who also loves great food! Together, we’ve created a line of chocolate bars that are beautifully made, affordable, and the perfect accompaniment to nearly any occasion. Available in Dark, Milk, Sea Salt Almond, Artisan Dark Milk, Hazelnut, and Sea Salt Caramel, these are meant to be nibbled at your desk mid-day, post meal for a decadent dessert, or paired with the perfect wine for a tasty treat.

4. Regalis Truffle Products

By directly sourcing products from small family producers and partners Regalis is able to provide tremendous items to Michelin starred restaurants and now home cooks, including their line of truffle foods. Enjoy white truffle year round with their White Truffle Infused Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Cold-pressed and small estate grown, this olive oil has a beautiful golden hue and exudes the earthy, umami elegance of white truffles from Le Marche, Italy. We like to enjoy this olive oil drizzled on top of fresh pasta, DLM Artisan Bread, omelettes, or meat. Elevate your roasted veggies, burrata cheese, or fresh strawberries with Regalis Black Truffle Balsamic. This 18 year barrel-aged balsamic from Modena is infused with black winter Perigord truffles from Spain to create a rich, luscious glaze that prized by top chefs around the world. Regalis Black Truffle Carpaccio is composed of slices of large, aromatic Italian summer truffles from Abruzzo, Italy, that are preserved in extra virgin olive oil. These slices are amazing on meats, pastas, risotto, or mac and cheese. By combining minced fragrant Italian summer black truffles from Abruzzo, Italy, with Champignon de Paris mushrooms and extra virgin olive oil, Regalis is able to curate their Black Truffle Tapenade. Try tossing this sort of pâté with pasta, mixing with eggs, adding to sauces, or spreading over bruschetta. These truffle food finds exude sheer luxury.

5. Nina’s Paris Teas

Nina’s Paris invites you to sip tea like royalty as their teas are made from fruits and flowers of the garden of the King of Versailles. Grown using traditional techniques that were imposed during the time of Louis XIV, the fruits chosen for Nina’s Paris teas are carefully picked by hand allowing them to select only the best. As you steep Nina’s Paris Je t’aime, you’re met with aromas of vanilla and caramel that draws you in for the first sip. As you continue on your tea-drinking experience, you’ll find that this black tea cloaks you in gentleness and warmth. We’d be remiss to not include the ever-popular Nina’s Paris Marie Antoinette Tea. This tea is composed of a blend of ceylon tea, rose petals, and apples from the Versailles palace garden. With a beautiful fragrance and refined flavor, this tea is fit for a queen.

6. Maison Pebeyre Truffle Trio Gift Set & Truffle Oil Duo

We can’t get enough of the lavish truffle flavor, and Maison Pebeyre helped our desire for this earthy goodness with their Truffle Trio Gift Set and their Truffle Oil Duo.

The Truffle Trio comes fully loaded with truffle oil, truffle salt, and truffle honey.

These oils are excellent in risotto, pasta, drizzled over meat, scrambled eggs, and so much more.

7. Bee Raw Honey

Starting with a mission to save endangered bees and produce incredible products, Bee Raw collects quality honey from only wild or organic floral sources. They strive for sustainability by using post-consumer paper and glass packing for their products as well as supporting small farming bodies. Their Florida Orange Blossom Honey showcases beautiful orange flavor in the most delicious ways. With notes of citrus and zest, this honey is excellent with Manchego, as a sweet note in coleslaw, or added to cocktails. Bee Raw’s Sweet Yellow Clover Honey from Colorado exudes flavors of carmelized custard and a touch of burnt sugar making it the perfect partner for figs and washed rind cheeses, such as Taleggio. We love the light and floral flavors of their Maine Wild Raspberry Honey. We recommend using it to make a flavorful honey butter, adding it to a raspberry mojito, or simply adding it to your cheeseboard for a sweet drizzle.

8. The Tapas Sauces from Spain

Throughout their 50 years of being in business, The Tapas Sauces company has evolved offering products fit for current consumer’s liking and lifestyle all while preserving traditional Spanish flavors and recipes. We carry four different sauces, each representing varying flavors that can be used in different recipes. The blend of vegetables, sunflower oil, tomato sauce, vinegar, garlic, and spices makes their Salsa Mojo Picón the perfect partner for grilled meats. It’s also great to dip nachos, fries, or baked potatoes. Their Salsa Verde is full of garlicky goodness and a delicious addition to seafood and poultry. Salsa Chimichurri, made with lemon, honey, and red bell pepper, is slightly spicy and goes great with roasted meat, poultry, or fish. The spiciest of the group is the Salsa Brava. Originally from Spain, this tomato-based sauce pairs well with fried potatoes.

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!

5. Klatch Coffee

Born out of a family’s love for great coffee, Klatch Coffee has a strong commitment to honest business practices. Using Fair Direct Trade, they build trust and loyalty with the farmers they work with resulting in their ability to source quality beans from around the world. They roast each coffee varietal to its “Peak of Flavor” giving each coffee an exceptional taste.

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. Or, try out some of her sauces including This Little Goat Went to Hong Kong, This Little Goat Went to Korea, This Little Goat Went to Southeast Asia, and This Little Goat Went to Tokyo.

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.

8. Truff Hot Sauce

 

The perfect blend of ripe chili peppers, organic agave nectar, black truffle, and savory spices, this luxurious hot sauce is unlike any other, making it a hot sauce game changer. Truff Hot Sauce is velvety smooth and rich in flavor making it an excellent way to elevate a variety of dishes. We love it on just about anything!
