Our favorite television shows have gone on hiatus for the summer, which means we will have to wait till September to tune into our nightly guilty pleasures. But not so fast. This evening, the Food Network’s The Best Thing I Ever Ate will be airing an episode featuring Iron Chef Michael Symon, The New York Times’ Frank Bruni, and chef and television personality Scott Conant.
Some of you may be wondering what this has got to do with The Magic City. So we’ll tell you. Undoubtedly you have either heard about or indulged in the fare at Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink in the Design District. And if you have had the opportunity to dine at Michael’s, then you have certainly indulged in the tasty sweets created by pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith—her pop tarts, popcorn and peanuts, and creamsicle pot de crème are divine, and tonight Symon, Conant, and Bruni will go on the record about these delectable desserts.
“I was thrilled when I heard my desserts were picked for the show,” says Goldsmith. “Though I love what I do it’s the joy my cooking brings to others that makes it all worth it. Having folks in the industry I respect sound off like this means a lot to me.”
Goldsmith has been on Haute Living’s radar for quite some time. In our February/March 2010 edition of Haute Living Miami contributing writer Jaquelynn D. Powers gave her a shout out, as did Michael Schwartz, the chef/owner of Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, in our “Culinary Power Players” article.
So, fellow Miamians, be sure to tune in tonight at 9:00 p.m. to see Goldsmith heralded by three of television’s most renowned food experts and personalities. And if you can’t make it to your couch in time, there is always DVR.
