Ciao tutti! The Genuine Kitchen is back! After a long and dolce holi-daze in bella Italia, I return invigorated and inspired to continue the genuine work with il capo and crew, and what better subject to turn the blog’s attention to first than executive pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith. Our very own honey dipper, weaving sweet dreams for 20+ years in South Florida, each getting better than the last, will represent Greater Miami in New York City on May 7 – not just for the ultra competitive and national category of Outstanding Pastry Chef, but as its sole James Beard Foundation Award finalist. Since we were out and got the news over email many many thousands of kilometers away, lots of folks have wanted, as we do now, to talk to Hed about what she is feeling with this honor becoming a reality, and as expected, she has lots on her mind to share. Please read some of her thoughts here in Laine Doss‘ piece and click the image above for John Tanasychuk’s in Sunday’s Sun-Sentinel. Buona fortuna Hedala!
