The stories behind quintessential Brooklyn foodstuffs like Fox’s U-Bet chocolate syrup, Acme smoked fish and newcomers like Brooklyn Brine pickles, Ample Hills ice cream and Owney’s Original New York City Rum are recounted in 'Made in Brooklyn.'—Florence Fabricant, The New York Times
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
If Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea are the food-scene stage, then Made in Brooklyn is the behind-the-scenes all-access pass, revealing the inspiring stories of our homegrown makers and showing the world what makes real Brooklyn tick.
—Eric Demby, co-founder of Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg
Made in Brooklyn is a great source book for locally-made food and beverages and makes a perfect gift not only for visitors, but also for any new or native Brooklynite. A wonderful whirlwind tour of the best out there in Brooklyn.
—Francine Stephens, Proprietor franny’s, BKLYN Larder, and Rose's Bar & Grill.
I thought I knew this trendiest of boroughs pretty well. Now along comes a vibrant and user-friendly compendium called Made in Brooklyn, highlighting 111 exciting food and drink products made locally in small batches by quirky artisans and in large batches by famous companies.
An insider's guide to Brooklyn's craft-food-and-drinks movement.
Reason it’s a page turner: You can practically taste everything on the page thanks to the gorgeous photography by Heather Weston. Reason to shut the nightlight: I said “practically.” This book will make you hungry!
—The Alcohol Professor
Flipping through the book inspires two feelings: one, incredible hunger — the photos really are good — and two, wonder at the immense diversity of the business represented within.
—The Jewish Week
For the Kings County Completist... No one knows how many painstaking producers of food and drink there are in Brooklyn these days. Well, maybe Marty Markowitz does. The point is that it’s nearly impossible to keep track of all the small-batch, hand-crafted activity. Which is why Made in Brooklyn, by Susanne König and Melissa Schreiber Vaughan, is such a handy resource. All the great picklers, beer brewers, bread bakers, granola-makers, ice cream churners, kale dehydrators, bitters bottlers, taffy pullers, fish smokers, coffee roasters, whiskey distillers, and more are here.
