Where do you draw inspiration for your dishes and specials?
From our incredibly talented and diverse chefs, staff and our customers too. We like to think that we “crowdsource” our creativity, which provides the unexpected as well as funand delicious surprises. In our 28-year history, we have archived every recipe we’ve ever cooked or baked. It’s funny how food trends keep coming back around all the time.
What is your approach to balancing healthful eating withoverindulgence?
We offer the best of worlds. No matter how indulgent, great food and desserts can be made with wholesome ingredients that nourish as well as delight the senses.
What makes your bakery so special?
We wanted to recreate the pastries and baked goods of our childhood in Brooklyn. We’ve always made everything the old-fashioned way, from scratch every day. Baking is a kind of architecture. We like building new creations out of classic ingredients.
When you’re not eating and cooking for your own restaurants, whator where do you like to eat?
In the summer we like to stand in the middle of our small farm and eat whatever is growing. We are totally addicted to the intense flavors and fresh textures of southeast Asian food. The other thing we can never get enough of is cupping all the coffee samples that come into our roastery.
