I went to visit Mark in the kitchen yesterday and spent about 2 and a half hours taking photos. Can you believe that I’ve never been to the kitchen before? Well, he’s only been in the space since November, so it hasn’t been too long, but now I can picture where he works – it was always so abstract before. It was also interesting to tag along for a couple of hours. Mass cookie baking is indeed repetitive and “boring”. Think about all the hundreds of cookies you have to cut with a cookie cutter by hand in one shift, for example, and you get the idea. But there was such a nice vibe in the kitchen and he is not alone, as it is shared by a number of other small food businesses spread over the 3 kitchens and day/night shifts in the space, including our friends from the Brooklyn Flea, Liddabit Sweets, who are Mark’s direct kitchen mates. Our other friends, the Robicellis are in a different kitchen and often in different time shifts, but there is a nice sense of camaraderie and plenty of kitchen/chef humor flying about. I took a ton of photos and will be sharing them here over the next few weeks.
