Episode 152: You Had Us at Cake and Cocktails

 

Caroline Schiff is a self-taught pastry pro whipping up gorgeous layer cakes, glazed donuts, countless cookies, and more for The Greene Grape in Brooklyn. She talks to host Kerry Diamond about her mentors, like Chef Sohui Kim of The Good Fork and Insa; why she’s birthday cake obsessed; and what she’s doing with browned butter these days. We also talk about her awesome Instagram account and her equally awesome head of hair, which is part Kate Bush, part Anne of Green Gables. Also stopping by is cocktail authority Maggie Hoffman. Maggie’s new book, One-Bottle Cocktail, features dozens of recipes for cocktails you can make at home with easy-to-find ingredients. Maggie talks about being a mom and not being a bartender, and she name checks a few of her favorite female mixologists.
