Restaurant-Quality Oil and Vinegar

Il Buco Alimentari & Vineria makes some of NYC’s best Italian food, and their condiments are a perfect way to bring the flavors home. We love their aceto di vino rosso (red wine vinegar) and biancolilla extra virgin olive oil.

Our favorite scarf-wearing chef’s line of teas draws inspiration from his Swedish-Ethiopian heritage. Our picks are Lingonberry green and the Earl of Harlem, a rich, slightly smoky take on the classic Earl Grey.

Elizabeth Wiltgen, founder of L.A. food truck Ice Ice Shavie, branched out this year into ready-to-serve vodka drinks. These carbonated boozy beverages are an easy upgrade on the standard pre-batched punch.

Franklin Barbecue Sauce

Not everyone can make it to Austin to try Aaron Franklin’s renowned smoked meats—let alone has the patience to wait in the hours-long line. Skip the trip and try the sauce at home.

Christina Tosi’s inventive sweet treats are available by mail for those who don’t live in NYC (or those who do, but don’t feel like leaving the house). Get the assorted cookie tin for a range of hits including compost and cornflake-marshmallow-chocolate chip, or try the holiday special: a dozen peppermint cornflake cookies.

Sassy Sausages

The housemade sausages at Minneapolis’s Butcher & The Boar are, in a word, swoon-worthy, and the restaurant is now shipping them nationwide. Go for the classic butcher brat or try the smoked cheddarwurst or hot links.

Mail-Order Greatness

To our great gastronomic satisfaction, plenty of amazing restaurants around the country will straight-up mail you their best dishes. Some of our favorites include the New York Nostalgia collection from NYC’s iconic appetizing shop Russ & Daughters, deep-dish pizza from Giordano’s in Chicago, Hell’s Kitchen doughnut bread from Minneapolis (pictured), Pok Pok Som drinking vinegars made in PDX, and Mandoo’s mail-order dumplings—a rarity—out of Englewood, NJ.
