Gluten Free Product of the Week: Cheese Crisps by Kitchen Table Bakers
How times change. When I started this blog back in 2007, there weren't too many Gluten Free snack options on grocery shelves besides rice cakes, but there has since been a smorgasbord of GF crackers and chips made from all sorts of wheat-free and gluten-free ingredients.
Here at the Crispy Casa we love those Nut Thins, those Mary's Gone Crackers varieties, those Riceworks crackers and we even love making our own crackers from time to time. Now there's yet another tasty GF snack cracker which proved to be a real hit in the Crispy Cook test kitchen.
Kitchen Table Bakers is a New York company whose line of products consists of various flavors of these indulgent, crunchy Cheese Crisps, made of Parmesan and flavorings. They were wonderful snacks that disappeared quickly in my house. They remind me of fricos, those crisp shavings of Parmesan that are crisply fried on both sides and then decorate fancy restaurant salads and appetizers. They were thicker and harder than a frico, but just as decadent.
We love the Cheese Crisps as is, without any topping, as they were satisfying and rich enough on their own. They were excellent accompanied by a glass of dry red wine (try Pinot Noir) and with a side salad, I think you have a nice light meal in the making. Kitchen Table Bakers sent me a package each of Aged Parmesan and Rosemary flavors to sample, and both were equally good.
Locally, you can find Cheese Crisps for sale at Honest Weight Food Coop in Albany, or you can order them online from the Kitchen Table website for $4.99 a package plus shipping.
