Sure you could have thought up this four-flavor cocktail stirrer, snack and garnish-at-large. But you didn’t—and Sable & Rosenfeld has done a smashing job. Photography by Katharine Pollak | THE NIBBLE.

WHAT IT IS: Three exceptional food enhancers.
WHY IT’S DIFFERENT: They’re the best we’ve found in their respective categories.
WHY WE LOVE IT: The high quality and the joy of discovering something that fills a hole in the gap of our buffet of great specialty foods.
WHERE TO BUY IT: See individual listings.

A Trio Of Treats: Gherkin Garnishes, Oatcakes & Salad Dressing

CAPSULE REPORT: What do gherkin garnishes, oatcakes and salad dressings have in common?

They’re all specialty foods. They’re all memorable enough to be Top Picks Of The Week. And you can enjoy them together in one meal.

  • Don’t think that “oat cakes” are boring: We ate almost every one of Effie’s Homemade Oatcakes, and begrudgingly shared three with other NIBBLE staff members.
  • We’ve finally found someone who makes blue cheese dressing better than our own: Kathryn’s Cottage Blue Cheese Dressing. If you’re a blue cheese dressing lover, be sure to order lots. The Thousand Island Dressing is superb, as well.
  • When you see Sable & Rosenfeld’s Tipsy Cocktail Stirrers—a gherkin, an olive, some roasted red pepper and a cocktail onion—you’ll wonder why no one has thought to offer them before.

Feel free to pass off the gherkins and the dressings as your own culinary genius. Youl can even convince guests that you baked the oat cakes!
