Young Food Entreprenuers Make Their Future By Hand


Nice write-up about the Greenpoint Food Market “a real incubator for those that want to take the next step,” in today’s Dining & Wine section of the NYTimes.  Congratulations to Joann for all of her tireless work and hopefully the new food vendor restrictions won’t cramp our style!

Oh, if you watch closely you can see me fanning myself near the 1:01 mark on the video!

Another in memoriam.

Young Food Entreprenuers Make Their Future By Hand



Another Saturday at the Greenpoint Food Market! I went with a mini-theme this time: mini chocolate cupcakes with mocha liqueur frosting (I’m seriously digging this whole alcohol in frosting thing), mini lemon raspberry muffins, and black ‘n white cookies..for which I of course made mini samples.

After two days of baking, and a whole day of sampling, I needed a serious departure from sugar, Five Leaves blue points were the perfect way to end the day.

In memoriam.

P&H Soda Co. on Martha Stewart!

Congratulations to my friend Anton Nocito of P&H Soda Co. for not only appearing on Martha Stewart, but teaching her how to make cream soda!

If you haven’t already tried Anton’s artisanal soda syrups they are available at Brooklyn Farmacy, Kill Devil HillBrooklyn Kitchen (he’s teaching a soda syrup class on January 11th), and the list goes on and on.

I would like to give my utmost thank you to Joann Kim of the Greenpoint Food Market for introducing me to all of the wonderfully talented people of the GFM, I’m so proud of everyone!

Brooklyn Based

To quote Joann Kim, the creater of this fantastic market, the: “GFM hopes to be a support system for explorative amateur chefs and gourmands wishing to share their goods with the community and maybe even make a buck or two along the way. GFM is all about community involvement and gastronomical gratification, bringing folks together through food appreciation.”
