This week on Brooklyn Eats spirit expert Robert Simonson relays his past few months spent researching articles on The NY Egg Cream for Edible Brooklyn & Manhattan. Learn the various conflicting stories regarding the birth of the egg cream (long-lost familial secret? European misunderstanding?) and hear the science and art behind the egg cream’s most important component: seltzer (NOT club soda). Plus, how did Fox’s U-Bet become the undisputed king of Egg Cream syrups? This episode was sponsored by Tekserve: your one-stop Mac superstore.
