Due to the expected blizzard in NYC (hello Stella!) Zabar's retail store will be closed on Tuesday, March 14, 2017. We appreciate your understanding as we want to keep our employees safe during the snow storm.
A note to our mail order customers: If your order is scheduled to ship from our store on March 14th please expect a delayed ship date for your order. We will notify you when your order will ship.
Another cold snap here in NYC is pushing spring just a little further away. I like to think of it as a reason for warming up the kitchen with some extra goodness.
To get us started I've added some ingredients beyond the basics, beyond traditional Irish soda bread recipes. This one, with vanilla and raisins, is a touch sweet so it actually makes a perfect bread for mornings and brunch. Alternatively, give it a go for your afternoon snack and it'll be a great side for a savory roast or lamb dish.
Spring is near and the evening hours of daylight that begin on Sunday when daylight saving time starts (March 12th) are wonderful for picnicking, shopping and playing (yes, warmer weather will be here to stay soon!).
But when I go to sleep on Saturday and set my clocks forward I'll know the best thing about losing an hour of sleep is that I get my Zabar's Coffee an hour earlier on Sunday!

Why weeknight? Because this is a simple, quick meatloaf recipe to pop in the oven as soon as you get home. By the time you're ready to eat, it's ready for you! You can even prepare it before heading out in the morning, just keep it in the refrigerator until ready to cook, and dinner is on the table.
Serve it with the all-time favorite, mashed potatoes, or change it up with some roasted cauliflower!
The toasting bagels that you were kind enough to send us are absolutely delicious. They are the best bagels I have ever tasted. I have been having them at breakfast with butter and orange marmalade. Even my wife, Dedie, who does not particularly like bagels, says that they are delicious. They are totally lacking in the soft, gummy quality that we both dislike about most bagels. Thank you so much for sending them.

Here's a little more about the outstanding Li-Lac Chocolates:
The history of Li-Lac Chocolates dates back to 1923 when George Demetrious, a native of Greece who studied the art of chocolate making in France, emigrated to New York and opened his shop at 120 Christopher Street in the heart of Greenwich Village. During the 1920s, Greenwich Village was a destination for artists, intellectuals and innovators. It was in this context that Mr. Demetrious applied his chocolate-making expertise, creating and perfecting his recipes for such items as Almond Bark, Butter Crunch, Hazelnut Truffle Squares, Legendary Fudge, and other favorites, steadily building a loyal customer following among his quirky and demanding neighbors. Over the ensuing 9 decades, Li-Lac became a New York favorite. When trendy ingredients and mass production emerged as the model for the modern chocolatier, Li-Lac remained true to its history and tradition, eschewing automation and trendiness. Deemed "stubbornly old fashioned" by the Wall Street Journal, Li-Lac Chocolates is one of the few old-school chocolate companies to survive into the modern era.
