And while we are on the subject of slow food, a shout out to the newest dessert from the kitchen of the inimitable Stacey Glassman, caterer and chef extraordinaire. Stacey runs Swan's Way Catering--she is also my friend (and very first employer) Judith Daniels' sister. Style down to the fingertips runs in this family. Stacey has created a new, frozen dessert called Dolcelinos. This is what you need after you've crunched your way through all those veggies you brought home from the farmer's market.
Right now you can only get Dolcelinos in a few of Maine's best food shops. Whole Foods in Portland, Maine, has picked them up. But the first time I bit into a Dolcelino, I felt like I was at the beginning of a dessert revolution. I love this reinvention of that childhood delight, the ice cream sandwich. Remember when Stoneyfield Yogurts were hard to find? or Nantucket Nectar came out of a cooler on a dock? I can't wait for Dolcelinos to be available everywhere.
