As we always like to say, we are of Brooklyn. We are Brooklyn. So, we are very proud to be featured in “Made in Brooklyn: An Essential Guide to the Borough’s Artisanal Food and Drink Makers”.
Amazon describes this book, written by Melissa Schreiber Vaughan & Susanne Konig and photographed by Heather Weston as:
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.
In this wonderfully informative book with incredibly appetizing pictures, each of our neighbor makers are profiled in depth, depicting the artisans’ craft and methods along with their personal histories.
This insider’s review of Brooklyn’s much celebrated food and drink culture, already received great critical acclaim. Read below for some of these.

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
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!
