1. Nu Bake Phyllo Crisps

Delicate, crispy, indulgent, and buttery, phyllo pastry is flaky and oh-so delicious. Nu Bake has taken this classic dough and cranked up the flavor with their phyllo crisps. They carefully layer phyllo dough sheets by hand and top them with an assortment of goodies. From dried cranberries, oats, and sunflower seeds to cinnamon and apples, these crisps are perfect vessels for a variety of cheeses. Or if you’re looking for a sweet snack, these are one of our new go-tos.

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. Dealing exclusively with truffles, this family-owned and run company in southwestern France is well known for their remarkable products. The Truffle Trio comes fully loaded with truffle oil, truffle salt, and truffle honey. Add that delicious truffle flavor to a variety of dishes, like popcorn, vegetables, fish, and salads, with these tasty products. Enjoy both black and white truffle olive oil with their Oil Duo. 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.
