GLUTEN FREE VEGETARIAN ALL-CHEESE CRISPS AT FANCY FOOD 2009

Yes, entirely of cheese! But that really doesn't say it all. Take cheese, double (quadruple?) the intensity of the cheese flavor, and then you have this tiny (see below) little crisp. The small package is handy but it would be a mistake to eat it all at once, since these need to be savored, slowly, they are so very rich. 

But apart from plain old munching? Perfect with a sweet roasted red pepper dip? Or sprinkled some over a simple spinach and tomato salad? They're high in protein, low in carbs, (not so low in fat, which is why I like them paired with no-fat vegetables) and just fifteen of these little guys provide 20% of a day's needed calcium.

If the aged-cheese intensity has made you a fan of the coin-sized crisps, their big brothers (about the diameter of a water cracker) will send your hors d'oeuvres into appetizer heaven and your allegiance will switch to, for example, the Everything crisp (pictured above) or, my favorite: the Garlic, or my runner-up: the Jalapeno. But then, I can't say I'm sure of the pecking order, here,  because they were all (including the Italian Herb, Rosemary, Flax Seed, Aged Parmesan) so wonderful. Made by Kitchen Table Bakers, available at Whole Foods.
