Leone’s Gianduioso

When it comes to holiday food gifts, packaging matters as much as flavor. Leone’s Gianduioso ($9.80 at Eataly, 200 Fifth Ave., at 23rd St.; 212-229-2560), a spectacularly delicious Piedmontese chocolate-hazelnut spread you squeeze out of what looks like a gold toothpaste tube, has both departments covered. It’s like Nutella, only with fewer, better ingredients and more potential for fun. Stuff it in a stocking, squeeze it over hot toast, squirt it onto a stack of pancakes, or just tilt it directly into a deserving recipient’s mouth like a can of Reddi-wip.

For me, the high point of the show is this, which manages simultaneously to be a painting, a force field, and an electromagnetic visual discharge. This is an artist sloughing off old consciousness, making something he doesn’t even know is art, giving up nearly all known languages of painting, and maybe violating the laws of nature by making something that seemingly puts off more energy than went into making it.
