Chocolate Covered Raspberries

Available only in July: the season’s freshest raspberries, covered in milk or dark chocolate. These are from Bissinger’s in St. Louis, but it’s easy to make your own chocolate-covered fruit.

Food tip of the day

 

Goat Cheese “Caprese”

Mozzarella, tomato and basil, the classic “Caprese salad” (named after the Italian island of Capri) is a popular first course. For a change, substitute goat cheese. Its creaminess pairs beautifully with the sweet acidity of tomatoes. For a beautiful dish, slice circles from a log of goat cheese and plate with sliced heirloom tomatoes and fresh basil leaves; drizzle with fine olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Variations include substituting the sliced tomatoes for a “salad” of red and yellow tomato wedges (or sliced cherry tomatoes) in a red wine vinaigrette. Or, you can stack the cheese, basil and sliced tomatoes in a “napoleon.” When tomatoes aren’t in season, substitute roasted red peppers. Click here to read more about goat cheese.

If you need some cool refreshment now that the temperature’s risen, check out our Beverage Section, as well as our new monthly beverage and cocktail selections below (the Deconstructed Cocktails From Saint-Tropez are especially interesting, and the St. Germain elderflower liqueur is simply delicious). You can also cool down with ice cream: July is National Ice Cream Month. You can find all of our favorite ice cream reviews plus recipes and informative articles (for example, what exactly is the difference between ice cream and gelato?). It’s also National Hot Dog Month, but if your tastes are a bit more highbrow, you can celebrate National Caviar Day on July 18 (and beyond). Learn about caviar, see our bounty of articles and new product reviews in the Table of Contents below, and read about dozens more food holidays. You won’t want to miss July 28, National Milk Chocolate Day, and our recommendations of The Best Milk Chocolate Bars. Even the dark chocolate lovers among us have been nibbling away at them.

In addition to this monthly online magazine, we e-mail our Top Food Pick Of The Week newsletter to opt-in subscribers. If you don’t already receive it, click here to have it delivered directly to your e-mailbox. Of the thousands of specialty foods we taste each year, these 52 weekly recommendations are our favorites for both home use and gift-giving. You won’t want to miss them!

THE NIBBLE does not sell the foods we review
or receive fees from manufacturers for recommending them.

Our recommendations are based purely on our opinion, after tasting thousands of products each year, that they represent the best in their respective categories.
