Made In Brooklyn: 

An Essential Guide to the Borough's Artisanal Food & Drink Makers

By Susanne König and Melissa Schreiber Vaughan  

Photography by Heather Weston 


Over the past decade, Brooklyn has emerged as the epicenter of the craft food and drinks movement. Made in Brooklyn is a gorgeously photographed and selectively curated catalog of the wondrous variety of food and drink available in the trailblazing borough, featuring more than 110 different Brooklyn makers and over 1,100 original photographs, from old-school favorites such as Acme Smoked Fish and Fox’s U-Bet to newer makers whose products are destined to become classics in their own right, such as Salty Road and Van Brunt Stillhouse. Each maker is profiled in-depth, depicting the artisans' craft and methods along with personal histories.
Made in Brooklyn includes a list of shops, markets, and liquor stores that feature an extensive range of Brooklyn-made foods and goods, along with an informal walking tour where a variety of makers offer tours, tastings, and workshops.

“Everywhere you go, whether you’re in Australia or England or Paris even, they’re referencing Brooklyn in some way…arguably, we’re looking at the Brooklynization of the world at this point.”-Anthony Bourdain, chef, author and TV host.

“If Smorgasburg and Brooklyn Flea are the food-scene stage, then Made in Brooklyn is the behind-the-scenes all-access pass, revealing the inspiring stories of our homegrown makers and showing the world what makes real Brooklyn tick.”  -Eric Demby, co-founder of Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg.

"Made In Brooklyn is a great source book for locally-made food and beverages and makes a perfect gift not only for visitors, but also for any new or native Brooklynite. A wonderful whirlwind tour of the best out there in Brooklyn.” -Francine Stephens, Proprietor franny’s, BKLYN Larder, and Rose’s Bar & Grill.
