Like many restaurateurs and chefs trying to survive the pandemic, Jonathan Benno has gone into the meal kit business. Along with dinner dishes to assemble at home, his Leonelli Focacceria e Pasticceria in the NoMad section of Manhattan is offering frozen chocolate chip cookie dough, ready to bake. Leave space on the baking sheet: The dough makes hefty confections that spread to about four inches in diameter and are thickly peppered with bits of Italian chocolate. You can’t bake just one; the kit comes with a baker’s dozen.
