"Almond Joy rules the candy world!”—Marco Canora of Hearth and Terroir, NYC

Peanut M&M’sMichael Psilakis of Anthos, Kefi and Gus & Gabriel in NYC and Eos in Miami. In an interview for F&W Best New Chef 2008, Psilakis told me he could eat a pound of M&Ms in one sitting, and instantly became my hero.
