Budino, reimagined for the end of summer

Not content to rest on the cult status of Barbuzzo's wildly popular caramel pudding in a jar, chef Marcie Turney took it a step further - freezing it, dipping it in dark chocolate, and popping it on a stick. Just like the original budino but colder, the creamy pudding surrounds a core of salted caramel and chocolate cookie crumbs, which is then coated in chocolate and dusted with sea salt. You know you shouldn't eat the whole thing, but you just can't help yourself.

- Maureen Fitzgerald
Budino pops, $5 each, at Verde, 108 South 13th St. 215-546-8700. Available Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, between 12 and 2 p.m. until the end of August.

  • Heavenly heirloom tomatoes, organically delicious from Delaware
  • Cooking with heirloom tomatoes is one of the fleeting joys of summer. Happy Cat' "micro-saucery" now offers a convenient shortcut and season-extender by simmering its heirlooms down with shallots, garlic, and herbs for a pureed sauce that is essentially a Kennett Square summer in a jar. Be forewarned, though: this sauce is thicker and sweeter than commercial versions, so be sure to save some salted pasta water to thin to taste.

    Happy Cat Heirloom Tomato Sauce, $9 a jar at Happy Cat farm stands (including Sunday at Head House Square); $12 at both Talula's Daily (208 W. Washington Square) and Table (102 W. State St. Kennett Square).
