Scholarship Spotlight: Angel Torres

 

The recipient of the 2014 Chelsea Market Sunday Supper Scholarship, Angel Torres has just begun his freshman year at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, where he plans to pursue a degree in baking and pastry arts.

Eye Candy: Cheese Illustrated

We adored these cheese sketches (complete with accoutrements) that graced the cheese platters at Chelsea Market Sunday Supper. Diners referred to the illustrations to identify the various farmstead cheeses that were served during the meal. (JBF Award winner Anne Quatrano prepared the accompaniments.) The folks at Metromix have put together a gorgeous slideshow of the event, which you can see here.
