Local shops with delicious treats to serve or give as gifts
The holidays are a time when visions of sugarplums and other culinary indulgences dance in our heads. Luckily, area shops offer mouthwatering options whether you’re bringing an edible gift to a party or serving up a full smorgasbord to your guests.
Armonk’s Insalata Pomidoro features a variety of meats and cheeses for antipasti, gift baskets, and desserts such as panettone, torrone, and cannoli.
Hostess gifts and stocking stuffers such as mini jars of honey or caramels are found at Pound Ridge’s Plum Plums, with, of course, its array of cheeses. Two of the most popular are a classic Stilton from the United Kingdom and a brie with truffles.
Customers flock to Mt. Kisco Seafood to shop for the Feast of the Seven Fishes. Whether it be lemon sole or salted cod, or the store’s version of paella and scungilli, you can find more than seven fishes there if you so desire. Also in Mt. Kisco is G.O. Kosher, where Jewish delicacies ranging from latkes to stuffed cabbage are available for Hanukkah.
Bedford Gourmet has everything for a successful holiday party–ranging from appetizers including seared foie gras served on brioche to entrées such as tenderloin of beef or roasted halibut fillets. And to top off a meal there’s bouche de noel, gingerbread cakes, Christmas cookies, and Hanukkah desserts at Bedford Village Pastry and Mt. Kisco’s L'Anjou Patisserie and La Tulipe.
