Blue Bottle for dessert?

If you find yourself craving for a little pick me up, you need Steve’s Ice Cream’s new flavor, NOLA Coffee and Donuts. Made with Blue Bottle Coffee, which is blended with chicory as in the New Orleans style, and organic sugar, for a distinct Southern style brew. Steve mixes in crumbled donuts for texture, Old Fashions, we think.

This pint’s probably got enough caffeine to keep the party going after a few pints of say, Brooklyn Chcoolate Stout, the star of BKLYN Blackout, another one of Steve’s creations.  Then visit The Annex for a hot cup of more Blue Bottle in the morning!

Don’t Scream But….

…This is just a friendly reminder that in between shivering and fantasizing that it’s already spring, you should to stop into Provisions at 2pm this Saturday for a tasting of Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. She painstakingly crafts her ice creams in flavors both classic (coffee, pistachio, pecan) and startlingly new (lavender, sweet potato, hot toddy, banana cajeta), but using ingredients like fine Askinosie chocolate and milk from Snowville Creamery.

Jeni’s creams are uniformly flavor-intensive, mostly gluten-free, and perfect with a cup of black coffee, so bring a friend!

I Love NYou

Celebrate your love for the local, with our I LOVE NY Valentine’s Day Package.

We start with our house made Bacon Jam, a low-and-slow cooked blend of  D’Artagnan’s Applewood Smoked Bacon, and Brooklyn’s own Olso Roasters Coffee. Its sweet and spicy flavors and unique texture make for a perfect condiment to most cheeses. Kinderhook Creek, made by Old Chatham in the Hudson Valley, is an all-sheep Camembert style, unctuous and decadent, sweet and just enough salt.

Because no Valentine’s Celebration is complete without chocolate, we’ve chosen the Nunu Chocolates Beer Box, a 6 pack of truffles blended with some of the best microbrews around. Wash it all down with our Borough’s own Brooklyn Brewery Local 2, a Belgian-style Strong Dark Ale, a touch sweet and malty, a dessert in and of itself. The 750ml bottle is big enough to share, nearly as strong as wine, and full of effervescent bubbles.

I LOVE NY
1 4oz Jar House Made Bacon Jam  * 1/4 lb Kinderhook Creek
1 750 ml of Brooklyn Local 2 * 6-pack Nunu Chocolates Beer Box

All for just $50.

Add your choice of fresh bread from Sullivan Street or Roberta’s for the complete I LOVE NY experience! Pre-order at the cheese counter!

We’re Jammin’… we hope you like Jammin’ too

Saturday, January 14th, we welcome The Stand Brooklyn, for a special tasting of their Winter Seasonal fruit jams and garnishes.

Sister and brother team, Nathalie and Jake, founded The Stand Brooklyn in 2010. Since then, they’ve brought us many lovely flavors of jams and fruit syrups, and now they’ve developed a lovely line of holiday inspired fruit garnishes. Best enjoyed with cheeses, French toast, over ice cream, or even stirred into a cocktail, these flavors are jam packed with fruit and spice.

Come in and let The Stand tickle your tastebuds, with their Spiced Cranberries, Apple Calvados Preserves, and Quince in Cardamom Syrup.

The cheese mongers will be pairing up some of our American made favorites. Expect fresh chevre, aged cheddar and maybe even a blue, each chosen to stand up to The Stand Brooklyn’s seasonal delights.
