The Perfect Pairing for Passing!

What better way to liven up the party than decadent passed hors d'oeuvres paired with a tasty beverage. Especially during the summer when it's warm and your guests are thirsty. Avoid crowding at the bar and pass around a memorable mini beverage to go with your delicious appetizers.

We're absolutely loving this trend, especially the tiny patron bottles with tiny straws! Whether it's mini sliders and beer sips or tiny tacos and micro margaritas, everyone will be interacting, smiling and of course toasting to you! Cheers!

Goat Cheese Salad Croutons
Go beyond just sprinkling the cheese on your salad and turn it into a cheesy crouton. I like the combo of goat cheese and Gouda because it holds together better. Each crouton adds about 150 calories to your salad, but with a little dressing and lots of veggies, you won’t need much else.
Goat Cheese Salad Croutons


  • Prep Time : 15 min
  • Cook Time : 8 min
  • Ready Time : 23 min


8 croutons


  • 4 ounces Natural & Kosher Gouda, coarsely grated
  • 4 ounces Natural & Kosher herbed goat cheese, softened
  • 1 tablespoon potato starch
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup matzah meal/Passover crumbs
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse or sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, for frying
  • Freshly ground black pepper


1. Mash together cheeses in a bowl, mixing until combined.  Form the mixture into eight balls, then flatten each slightly into thick patties.
2. Arrange three small dishes for dredging stations: Place the potato starch in the first one, beat the egg lightly in the second, and mix the matzah meal and salt in the last one.
3. Heat olive oil in a small skillet over medium heat. Once hot, fry each patty until golden and crispy, about two minutes per side. It is a little messy; sometimes two forks are better than a spatula.
4. Once browned, remove to a paper towel and then immediately top your salad of choice.  Sprinkle the whole thing with freshly ground black pepper.

Refreshing Tea for Summer

While summer begins in NYC, the sun is out and ready to be enjoyed. One of the best things to enjoy during the hot humid summers are refreshing drinks to keep you hydrated and cool.

Orange ice tea is a popular way to bring the tropical taste of Caribbean right to your backyard. All you need is a basic lemon tea and add oranges for a tangy twist of a refreshing ice tea treat.
