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.

Topped with:

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.

Drizzled with:

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.
