Thomas Raquel is the Executive Pastry Chef at New York City’s legendary seafood palace, Le Bernardin. The Los Angeles native entered culinary school at the tender age of 16, and has cut his teeth at some of the best restaurants on the planet including Pierre Hermé Paris and L20. Thomas has been wowing diners with his elegant, and sometimes whimsical dishes such as this apple dessert, which he painstakingly crafted to look just like a shiny red apple, and is filled with layers of apple cake and caramel mousse. We roll back to 2013, and pull one of our favorite musical performances out of the archives. Brooklyn trio, Radical Dads–guitarists Lindsay Baker and Chris Diken and drummer Robbie Guertin–joined us to play songs from their debut LP, Rapid Reality. In addition to the great music, they also shared the history of their soda zine, defined what “slice guys” are and told us what compels them to pursue gastro adventures.
