Over the past decade, Brooklyn has emerged as the epicenter of the craft food and drinks movement. Made in Brooklyn is a gorgeously photographed and selectively curated catalog of the wondrous variety of food and drink available in the trailblazing borough, featuring more than 110 different Brooklyn makers and over 1100 original photographs, from old-school favorites such as Acme Smoked Fish and Fox’s U-Bet Chocolate Syrup to newer makers whose products are destined to become classics in their own right, such as Salty Road Salt Water Taffy and Van Brunt Stillhouse. Each maker is profiled in depth, depicting the artisans’ craft and methods along with personal histories.
Made in Brooklyn will include a list of shops, markets and liquor stores that feature an extensive range of Brooklyn-made foods and goods, along with an informal walking tour where a variety of makers offer tours, tastings, and workshops.
