another sneak peek

March 30, 2011 |  Category:   photography the biz

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.

    I love these pictures! “behind the scenes” type stuff is my favorite… I look forward to seeing more in the coming weeks. Of course, they also make me crave cookies for breakfast which probably isn’t a good thing 🙂

    These are great … and it does bring the artisan element of how the work is done.

    It’s good to ‘see’ Mark

    Great pictures! I cannot wait to see other pictures form the kitchen. It’s always interesting to know and see where the products are made. Well, at least I feel that a producer who is willing to share the place he or she creates the food is confident of his or her products. No sketchiness, lol.
