House-made Cello Flight, Sirio

For the perfect wrap up to an Italian feast, hail Sirio’s roving after-dinner drink cart for an amaro, grappa or one of chef Vincenzo Scarmiglia’s house-made seasonal cellos, based on a recipe passed down from his grandmother that takes nearly three weeks to create. Each is individually paired with a beautiful petit four in flights of up to five. Try the cocoacello with a cocoa nib cookie, the tangerinecello with a polenta cookie or the ultimate sweet ending, trufflecello with a truffle chocolate brownie.

Design Your Own S’More Kits, Ethel M

By Grace Bascos

Everyone’s favorite DIY dessert is all grown up, thanks to local chocolatier Ethel M partnering with Santa Barbara, Calif.-based Burst confectioner, which makes, of course, gourmet marshmallows and graham crackers. Each element is sold separately, but what’s the point of marshmallows, graham crackers or chocolate alone? (OK, we’ll give chocolate a pass). Marshmallow flavors include vanilla, coffee, caramel and raspberry swirl, while chocolates come in white, milk and dark varieties. Find your nearest fire source and gobble up the nostalgia.
