The Goods: Local Foods We’re Digging This Month
Brownie eaters fall into one of two camps: those who prefer light, cakey versions, and those who crave near-underdone, fudgelike squares. We fall firmly in the latter group, as do the folks behind the Hudson, Massachusetts–based e-tailer Harvard Sweet Boutique, which offers dense brownies layered with fillings like vanilla-sea-salt caramel, raspberry buttercream, and mint.
$20–$22 for six, available at harvardsweetboutique.com.
Coupole Goat Cheese
Lately, we’ve been stepping up our afternoon snack time with Vermont Butter & Cheese Creamery’s aged goat cheese, which has a funky, gooey exterior and a fresh, creamy center.
$15 each, available at Bacco’s Wine & Cheese.
Essentially a cake-style doughnut hole with an elegant popover shape, these rich yet fluffy masterpieces from the Plate, in Milton, beg for a dunk in a hot mug of coffee (at least, that’s our justification for calling them “breakfast”).
75 cents each, available at the Plate.
