You know what's been missing? Dip. It's one of those things that makes everyone happy when it appears, but is often overlooked in the name of fancifying cocktail hour. Tear down this hors d'oeuvres wall, Mr. Martini-Drinker!
Television producer, Isaac Mizrahi adviser and perfectly preppy renaissance man, Korey Provencher equips us with the easy and most tasteful solution: He's created Kors d'Oeuvres, a wholesome and handmade line of dips and spreads in scrumptious flavors such as spinach and artichoke; roasted pumpkin, butternut squash and goat cheese; spicy black bean and chipotle; and southern bleu cheese and herb. His World's Greatest Onion Dip really, really is. The tastes are nostalgic but freshly modern, and I promise if you take them to a party, you will be the most popular person in the room.
You can order the creaminess from KorsdOeuvres.com, or find Korey each Saturday at the Brooklyn Flea (as if you needed another reason to hit it). This week, if you mention Dannielle Dishes, you'll be treated to a stellar buy one get one free situation! And you can always e-mail Korey for delivery options and the week's flavors.
One more thing: don't feel guilty if you have to physically remove yourself the dip and its 50-foot radius to stop eating it. It's been known to happen.
