At Food & Wine, we like to celebrate our Best New Chefs. So this year, in celebration of the announcement of our 2016 class, we threw a few parties. At one of the later night soirees, at WildAir, local heroes Jeremiah Lawrence and Fabian van Hauske brought in some pepperoni pies from Prince Street Pizza to give the out-of-town BNCs a little flavor of New York City.
The Prince Street pizza was thin crusted, crispy, appropriately greasy and delicious. And it reminded BNC Brad Kilgore, whose outstanding avant-garde cooking at Alter in Miami made him BNC, of pizzas he perfected when he was a student on a budget. In fact, it’s one his earliest chef tricks: To make a cheap, frozen pizza taste delicious.
