Most of us regard sugar as a guilty pleasure…or, you know, a reason for living — no judgment. These pastry prodigies think of it as a medium, and the city is all the more delicious for it. Tonight at the “Sugar”
edition of the Five Boroughs Food Talk
series, panelists will discuss New York’s dessert legacy, which extends far beyond the eponymous black-and-white cookie (Oreos were invented here too!). They
include inventor of the Cronut and other concoctions Dominique Ansel; chocolatier Jacques Torres; Darra Goldstein, founding editor of Gastronomica; and Charlotte Druckman, author of Skirt Steak. Gabriella Gershenson of Every Day With Rachael Ray mediates. Make sure you’ve got a candy fix on hand, because this will stoke your cravings.
