delicious dinner. Tuller’s shelves are stocked with everything

oils are just the tip of the iceberg. The array of gourmet
foods also includes an inventory of 100 cheeses.

PIE IN THE SKY
Thanksgiving pies and cakes from Brooklyn
bakeries that are sure to start new traditions
For every classic pie, there's a pastry chef
who composes variations on the theme.
Further down Court Street, the 9-inch
pumpkin tart at new gourmet shop Tuller
($25) is pumpkin pie Frenchified -
somewhat more refined in texture and
flatter. The filling glistens in a short-fluted
tart crust.
Specialty Foods

Today's Specialty Food Trailblazers

“We want to sell great-tasting food, but
we also want to support passionate
people who are in the specialty food
business because they love to create
great food.” There is not a broad
selection within categories, but what is
available is top-end. For instance, the
market carries just 11 olive oils, and that
is the broadest selection of any product.

There is a wealth of New York City-
produced products, such as bread from
Sullivan Street Bakery, wasabi nuts from
Jean-Georges and ice cream from
artisan maker Il Laboratorio del Gelato.
Tuller Food is one of just three shops in
the city that carry that brand.

And that’s what the market is about. The
best of food, merchandised in a tiny
space.

At Tuller Premium Food, petits fours ($2.50
each) come in a variety of flavors including
bittersweet truffle cream and raspberry
puree filled chocolate cake;

chocolate; and pink lemon curd with vanilla

   During Friuli New York 2003 (September
   25th  to October 13th) tastings of cheeses
   like the versatile Montasio, of the famous
   Prosciutto di San Daniele and of the superb
Friulian white and red wines will be held in wine
shops and food stores around the city; while many
regional dishes and wines will be featured on
menus at several of New York’s finest restaurants.
Tuller is a participating store....

Cheese, Glorious Cheese

You could then meet one of New York's
most passionate advocates of raw milk
cheese at Tuller Premium Foods (199
Court St., Brooklyn. 718-222-9933). When
I asked Robert Tuller which cheeses were
made of raw milk, he answered, “Which
aren’t?” I tasted a spicy Berger Plat and a
raw milk Brie. I was also fascinated with a
chevre with herbs and violets, but I will
have to sample that on my next visit.

Brooklyn Bridging
Has the time come when Manhattan
epicures will bypass Balducci's and Dean &
DeLuca in favor of Brooklyn?
Could be: ...local artisanal cheeses....you
can get them at Tuller Premium Food, a
two-month-old market that's made Cobble
Hill a dairy destination. "We have a public
that demands Vacherin, that demands
Epoisses," says Robert Tuller...a finance
guy turned professional taster. "They eat
grilled fennel and haricots verts like
nobody's business." Clearly, brownstone
Brooklyn was primed for someone like
Tuller, who's artfully stocked this petite
retail space with Steve's Key-lime pies,
Ortiz oil-packed ventresca tuna, Jacques
Torres's chocolate bark, Salumeria Biellese
sausages, and rustic loaves from Pain
d'Avignon and Sullivan Street Bakery. Not to
mention those 110 cheeses.

Frozen Assets
When Il Laboratorio del Gelato opened on the Lower East Side last
summer, ice-cream connoisseurs from every Zip Code trekked to
Orchard Street for scoops of vibrantly flavored gelato and sorbet
concocted by Jon Snyder, the creator of the Ciao Bella brand. Since
then, the gelato’s worked its way onto dessert menus around town
(like Mary’s Fish Camp and Pastis) and finally, as of this week,
into gourmet-store freezers. Ten flavors, from the classic (vanilla,
chocolate, and strawberry) to the creative (toasted almond, white
chocolate), are available in snappy square eighteen-ounce tubs at
...Tuller Premium Foods (199 Court Street, Brooklyn; 718-222-
9933).

Top 5 Chocolate-Chip Cookies
With all due respect to Famous
Amos, Mrs. Fields, and Mom, the
House of Toll has gone way
upscale. So who’s complaining?
4. Tuller Premium Food
Another Nestlé naysayer: Tuller,
the little Cobble Hill gourmet store
that could, uses chopped walnuts
and Schokinag, a fancy German
chocolate with a high cocoa content,
to deliciously deep effect. (199
Court Street, Brooklyn; 718-222-
9933, $1.75.)
