In honor of Earth Day earlier this week, we pulled together a snack with ingredients made all over New York City:
1. Crackly lavash, a Armenian bread that’s traditionally served soft but is equally delicious as a cracker, from Hot Bread Kitchen. Not only does this eco-conscious Long Island City organization use organic, local ingredients to bake its international breads, it hires immigrant women and funds their ESL classes.
2. Creamy ricotta from Salvatore Bklyn Ricotta, which has almost a mascarpone-like richness yet is still somehow fluffy and light. A female Brooklyn duo makes the fresh cheese with Hudson Valley milk, and it’s available at Saxelby Cheesemongers in Manhattan’s Essex Street Market.
3. Delicate Berkshire Berries New York City honey gathered from hives on Manhattan rooftops (as well as in the Bronx and Brooklyn) and purchased at the Union Square Greenmarket.
