Kathy Jones, executive chef of Iozzo’s Garden of Italy
(946 S. Meridian St., 317-252-3243
) has purchased Country Mouse City Mouse, the line of locally made sauces, spreads, and dressings that are not only vegan-friendly but also gluten- and casein-free. Her plans are to expand the brand, which already includes products such as chimichurri pesto, pineapple-mango salsa, and Tally Ho Salad Dressing—a tangy, sweet secret recipe from the long-lost Tally Ho Restaurant
in Peru, Indiana. (We are also big fans of CMCM’s flavored butters cleverly packaged in push-up popsicle containers.) So far, Jones has added her fresh lump crab cakes to the line, priced at $15 for four.
