A Food tip of the day



Lemon curd and its citrus siblings, lime curd and blood orange curd, are a sophisticated and versatile addition to any meal. Serve them with strawberries and other dipping fruit for a casual dessert or a snack. Spoon curd into tart shells for a more sophisticated yet instant dessert. One mini-shell of each flavor topped with a different berry adds to the fun. Use curd to to garnish bundt cakes and pound cake. Serve it with plain cookies. And of course, spread it on toast and muffins.  Keep jars in the
“emergency pantry” and you’ll always have something interesting to serve to guests.  We even use it to make “dessert pasta” with angel hair and slivered almonds!

The new Online magazine about specialty foods And
the gourmet life

MARCH 2005




This is our second full online issue of THE NIBBLE™, both a challenge and an achievement after two years of  publishing our weekly newsletter, or e-mailed newsletter, which reviews just one product.

After each issue is published, the articles get archived by category in the Product Reviews section, which you can reach by the pull-down menu on the top navigation bar. Our goal is to build the largest archive of reviews and articles focusing on specialty foods and gourmet products, for reference by everyone interested in this fast-growing category.

This month, we focused on three areas we get so many letters about: chocolate, toffee/buttercrunch, and pasta. We’ve created an extensive Chocolate Glossary as a fundamental reference guide. It explains a lot: we don’t know of any reference source anywhere near as extensive or comprehensible. We similarly provided a lot of pasta basics. It’s amazing how much there is to learn!  And we did have fun tasting some great toffees and coming up with both product reviews and other interesting approaches to the category for you.

If you’re not already receiving THE NIBBLE’s weekly newsletter, click here to have our top food pick of the week delivered directly to your e-mailbox. Of the thousands of specialty foods we taste each year, these are our favorites for both home use and gift-giving. You won’t want to miss them!

We look forward to your comments and any suggestions you have about how we can make THE NIBBLE™ magazine and newsletter more valuable to you. Click here to send us a note.
