A – Almonds
Inside the market at Table 3 Restaurant and Market, hunt down these limited-edition, smoked Marcona almonds, courtesy of the restaurant’s operating partner and wine director, Elise Loehr. Once a year, she hangs small sausage bags full of the buttery Marconas in her friend’s 1836 three-story smokehouse, while he smokes hams. The lingering hickory scent will hit you when you open the bag and adds a heavenly aroma to each savory bite. $21 for 1/2 pound; Table 3 Restaurant and Market; table3nashville.com
B - Butter
Roasted garlic basil, one of Wendy French Barrett’s handcrafted butter flavors under the label Wise Butter, is as versatile as it is delectable. Whether spread onto toast, tossed in a tangle of pasta, or melted over a grilled filet, it elevates a dish with ease. Wise it is, indeed. $8; wisebutternashville.com
C – Condiments
“Chef’s Kitchen” Condiments by Lockeland Table
Customers have long clamored for Lockeland Table chef Hal Holden-Bache’s “Chef’s Kitchen” line of products. Released this year, the line includes his popular Smoked Peach Jam, also a Red Pepper Jam, and a dry spice blend called Gun Powder. $8-$10; lockelandtable.com
