Meet the Tastemakers
Posted by Katie Macpherson
In the April 2010 issue of Martha Stewart Living, you may have noticed a snazzy spread all about some foodie movers and shakers. We here at MSLO have deemed this rogue bunch "The Tastemakers." Who are they, exactly? They're culinary artisans-- people who are putting modern spins on traditional foods, like beer, cheese, bread and meat. To celebrate these innovators, Martha Stewart HQ recently held a "Tastemakers" event. All of those featured in the article were represented, doing what they do best-- dazzling the crowd with their delicious food.
I was there with my microphone in hand-- take a listen!
Take a look at the photos from the event too!
1 Colorful madeleines and macarons captured my eye!
2 Florian Bellanger is the co-founder of Mad Mac in New Jersey. They're all about madeleines (mad) and macarons (mac)!
3 The co-owners of Mad Mac watch over their tower of sweetness.
4 These savory-sweet caramels were delicious!
5 Chef Eric Ripert (also co-host of Turn and Burn on MSLR!) chats it up with Lucinda Scala Quinn.
6 Have you heard of pixie tangerines? Grown in Ojai, CA, these little babies taste like fruit candy!
7 That is an entire half of a hog. Fleisher's Grass Fed and Organic Meats co-owner, Josh Applestone, is about to butcher it in front of an audience.
8 Ever wonder where your food comes from?
9 Time to butcher!
10 Jim Lahey's crusty Sullivan Street Bakery bread.
11 The ladies of Salvatore Bklyn make a killer ricotta.
13 These were going like hotcakes!
14 No doubt about whether you were in the right place!
