French tea towels, local pickled okra and beer-inspired chocolate ice cream – here’s what we’re stocking up on this week.
Xocorosa ice cream
Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams has just released Xocorosa, a limited-edition flavor inspired by Stone Brewing Co.’s seasonal mocha stout, Stone Xocoveza. No ordinary chocolate ice cream, this one is spiced and spiked with jalapeno, smoked paprika, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and rose. $12.00 per pint. Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams, 1198 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, 404-355-6050; 99 Krog St. NE, Atlanta, 470-891-8105 and 545 N. McDonough St., Decatur, 470-891-8095. jenis.com.
Le garçon tea towels
The home cook with a penchant for all things France will adore le garçon tea towels among the wares at new Saint Germain Bakery at Ponce City Market. The stone-washed towel features French waiters of a bygone era and are part of a line of Séria Limitée Louise silk-screen tea towels, all in sepia tones, created by the sister-in-law of Saint Germain co-owner Heather Jourdan-Gassin. $25. Saint Germain Bakery, 675 Ponce De Leon Ave. NE, Atlanta, 470-823-4141, Facebook: Saint Germain Bakery.
Pickled Pink Foods
Three-year-old Atlanta-based food company Pickled Pink Foods is keeping us happy with its line of pickled products. While we await the November release of its Perfectly Pickled Peaches as well as Vidalia Onion and Peach Relish, we’re chomping down on watermelon rinds that hold the flavors of warm baking spices and crunchy whole okra pods with superb red pepper heat. $5.99 to $8.99 per 16-ounce jar.
