Cold Comfort

Sorbet2

As the mercury rises, we've recently been savoring Sharon's Sorbet passion fruit sorbet. It's tangy and amazingly creamy, despite the fact that it's made solely from passion fruit, sugar, water, and pectin. Find it at your local grocery or online for $4.99/pint from icecreamsource.com.

Sole of a Chef

Crocs

Fashion victim (and chef) Mario Batali has partnered with Crocs to launch a new Bistro model featuring "a thicker metatarsal area to help protect the top of the foot, as well as a supportive arch and foot bed circulation nubs to ensure all-day comfort." They can be sterilized in clean water and bleach, or just toss them in the dishwasher like Mario does. The special edition clogs, due out in late Summer 2007, will retail for $39.99.
