F&W Best New Chef 2008 Gerard Craft’s favorite childhood snack was a Brazilian dish called Coxinha—braised chicken and cream cheese stuffed into dough and fried. Now he honors the memory of his nanny Dia, who got him hooked on the rich treats as a kid, with the amuse bouche at his restaurant. He creates an inventive croquette by coating fried Brazilian cheese with crumbled, crunchy chicken skin and serves the delicate bite over sorrel aioli.
