This week on Food Talk, Mike Colameco brings in two female pastry chefs. First is Allison Robicelli, owner of Robicelli’s. The two discuss some ridiculous trends that are popping up in food culture. Then, Allison tells us about her struggles with keeping her cupcake shop afloat throughout a struggling economy. After the break, we’re joined by Heather Bertinetti, who tells us about her experiences working as a chef at restaurants throughout the city. This program has been sponsored by Cento, Colavita, King Arthur Flour. Music provided by Brothers NYC.
