FOOD. CURATED. - The Best Food Videos

  1. Meet Clarice Lam, the chef & owner of The Baking Bean, a colorful & fun-loving, oven-to-door bakery specializing in all natural custom cakes, pastries, cookies & confections based in New York City.

    There's no denying Clarice will take you up on any invitation to play - especially in her kitchen. She has a child-like, giggly nature about her. Like that friend who always picks on you but laughs at herself too. It's charming and genuine. I think it's part of what keeps her customers coming back again and again. She is much like her treats: a little fancy, a little naughty, a little salty & very sweet.

    But, don't let the playfulness fool you: when it comes to baking, Clarice is all business. Classically trained in Pastry Arts at The French Culinary Institute, Clarice refined her craft at Thomas Keller's Bouchon Bakery in New York City before setting her sights on a solo career. In 2012, The Baking Bean came to life. Inspired by the flavors, and fond memories, of over a dozen international cities she's lived in, Clarice's creations are one of a kind. In every bite, you can experience a distinct story. Be it her Strawberry & Nutella Cookies inspired by her time eating crepes in Paris, or her Jasmine Milk Tea & Elderflower Bon Bons from her time growing up in Hong Kong. They have character and a point of view. Not your typical bakery menu. My personal favorite are her Rise & Shine Cookies, featured in the story, which incorporate everything good about breakfast into one perfect morsel. Now, almost 6 years later, everything is falling into place - even if she has to (kind of) begrudgingly make a few rainbow cakes here and there!

    Thanks for watching Clarice's story! I highly recommend you hit her up to cater your next breakfast or dessert tray. Since everything comes fresh, never frozen,  give her 48 hours notice before you need anything.

  5. “100 batches in, it still feels like magic.”

    Meet Homa Dashtaki, the founder and owner of The White Moustache yogurt company based in Brooklyn, NY. It’s nice when artisans are still in awe of their product, still bright eyed and in wonder about the magic of their process. It’s a feeling I seldom run into. Most artisans are so deep into their repetition of production that the feeling of excitement has left them. Taking its place: focus, duty, responsibility, deadlines, and other demands of the entrepreneurial world. But, not Homa. Not yet, anyway. For her, everyday is like delivering a new child into the world. The beauty of life…of raising happy cultures into yogurt.

    What sets The White Moustache apart is “coddling.” Homa admits to the TLC method of yogurt care – a lot of attention to the details. It’s how her dad taught her to make the beautiful Persian style yogurts she grew up with. These yogurts are elegant, and incredibly soft and rich on the palate, many spoonfuls above the quality of supermarket brands. Add her specialty Middle Eastern flavors to the mix, and entirely new experiences in yogurt arise! Dates, Orange blossom honey & walnuts, sour cherry whisk you to distant countries of which they were inspired – for every batch comes from a family memory. Ideas inspired by dishes or flavors from Homa’s home country of Iran. Enjoy her story.

    This is the third installment of our exciting video collaboration with Food & Wine Magazine on The Best American Artisans. Look out for Homa’s yogurt at select specialty stores in New York City.

    Thanks for watching food. curated.! Happy eating!
