At a click of its easy-to-use website, Food Temptation ships the raw elements of South Asian cuisine directly to the homes and offices of fine-food fanciers in northern New Jersey and Manhattan. These include more than a dozen varieties of flour, as well as chutneys, ghee, and spices in every color of the visible spectrum, except for the hideous color known only as polka-plaid. Gorgeous produce abounds, from curry leaves ($.79 per piece) to fresh, juicy guava ($3.99/lb.) to extra-life-granting 1-Up mushrooms (market price). Food Temptation also sells nearly 100 varieties of microwaveable Indian meals, such as the spicy, protein-packed chana masala ($2.49).
Gevalia draws from its more than 150-year history of java peddling and traditional Swedish bean brewing to brighten mornings with rich coffees and teas culled from premium crops from around the world. Like a fine wine or gourmet sports drink, each sip of the online emporium's more than 40 varieties of coffee is meant to be slowly savored, filling the senses with the tastes of clove-kissed dark-roast Indian Malabar ($9.99) or well-balanced 1853 heritage blend ($9.99). Piping cups of english breakfast tea ($5.95) awaken brains with earthy notes of robust flavor, and honey-laced sips of chamomile dream ($5.95) melt away stress and worries. The Classic Gevalia Coffeemaker ($59.99) features a handy pause-and-serve feature, while the sleek Gevalia Signature Stainless Coffeemaker ($99.99) offers a programmable clock and auto shut-off, allowing sippers to avoid brewing their beverages the old-fashioned European way of pouring hot water over grounds voted upon by a transnational political union.
Chef David Burke studied at the prestigious Culinary Institute of America before earning a glowing reputation as chef at the River Caf? and later the Park Avenue Caf?. He would parlay those experiences into his own entrepreneurial success, opening the celebrated davidburke & donatella on 61st Street in 2003, and then taking over the 59th Street fa?ade of the iconic Bloomingdale's department store. David's intent in opening his eatery in Bloomingdale's was to fuse different sensibilities. On one side, the Burke Bar Caf? offers an accessible but slightly more elegant dining experience. Alternatively, shoppers in a hurry can step over to the other side of the historical frontage. There, a streamlined, more cafeteria-like mood prevails at Burke in the Box, which swaddles the award-winning cuisine in snazzy takeout boxes. The menus at both establishments change regularly and abound with American fare updated by exciting twists.
