Episode 3: Marina Berger
Marina Berger is a personal chef who lives in Brooklyn. In 2009, she left her former life working at a prestigious SoHo art gallery to pursue good food. She resides on the internet at MarinaCooks.com and @MarinaCooks. Salt Salon, the food and performance series that she curates, is on the web here.
The Natural Gourmet Institute is where Marina went to culinary school.
Marina used the Tartine Bakery cookbook to make treats for her Salt Salon tea party. I am excited to learn that its recipes include weight in addition to volume. Baking by weight makes it easier for gluten-free folks to convert “regular” recipes to gluten-free.
I learn about Russian caravan tea from Marina. I am totally intrigued. More info here.
She shares her secrets for a legit DIY veggie burger, not that falling apart nonsense you’ve dealt with in the past.
We’re not sure of the difference between english muffins and crumpets. The kitchn weighs in.
I wonder if you can make clotted cream at home. Turns out, you can!
I rave about a cocktail with rosewater that I had at Dutch Kills.
