Serious Eats shined the spotlight on Hedy Goldsmith last fall, giving out copies of her recently released cookbook Baking Out Loud: Fun Desserts with Big Flavors. Now Goldsmith has been nominated for a James Beard award in the pastry chef category for her work at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink. I met Goldsmith at the fabulous Feast Portland event last fall and was immediately taken by her desserts, so I was excited when a recent trip to Miami afforded me the opportunity to taste some of her latest creations.

Last Last Sunday, on the lawn of Culver Studios, the chef-tacular second annual L.A. Loves Alex's Lemonade benefit was held for pediatric cancer research. Deeply moved by Alex's story, Los Angeles chefs Suzanne Goin(AOC, Lucques, Tavern) and husband David Lentz (The Hungry Cat), plus Goin's business partner Caroline Styne, have collected an astonishing group of chefs, mixologists and vintners. Everyone came out to lend a hand, a grill and a copious amount of wine and whisky to support the cause.
