Made in Brooklyn, An Essential Guide to the Borough’s Artisanal Food and Drink Makers

0 84

As someone born and bred in Brooklyn and now, a foodie – I had to play my part in supporting Brooklyn’s local food scene and Made in Brooklyn, An Essential Guide to the Borough’s Artisanal Food and Drink Makers, does just that. For Brooklynites and foodies alike we put this book on our Gotta-Have-It list.

“Everywhere you go, whether you’re in Australia or England or Paris even, they’re referencing Brooklyn in some way… arguably, we’re looking at the Brooklynization of the world at this point.”-Anthony Bourdain, chef, author and TV host.

As far as I can remember Brooklyn pretty much lived in the shadows of Manhattan; we couldn’t wait to pack our bags and move to “the city”. Not anymore! Over the past decade a lot has changed. Today, so many people are moving to this borough and happily calling it home. With more people comes the need for more apartments, restaurants, entertainment venues and greater demand for food and drink. And Brooklyn has stepped up to the occasion in style – having emerged as one of the leaders in today’s artisanal craft and food movement.
