Several weeks back, Gilt Taste managing editor Jennifer Pelka and our friend Ithai Schori gathered together members of the Dossier team and friends (including jewelery designer Anna Sheffield and stylist Michelle Cameron) at the Catskills home of photographer friend Dan Martensen to create Taste’s new Friday video series, By The Smoke. Taste (much like its brother and sister Gilt sites) is an online market that gives its members direct access to artisanal products and ingredients, many of which have only been available to professional chefs until now. In addition to sales, the site will function as an interactive magazine, with original recipes and content from chefs, photographers, filmmakers and tastemakers (tasty). Two weeks ago the site launched, sharing with us the first of five videos, featuring a soft boiled egg with wild mushrooms and Jamon Iberico, and last week’s Hama Hama blue pool oysters with pickled mustard seeds and charred scallions. They love food, and they say one of their favorite things about food is sharing it, so check in with them online to see tomorrow’s kale salad with braised shallots, toasted pine nuts and golden raisins, and the latest deals on all things kitchen related, from farm-to-table foods to essential kitchen equipment. And now without further delay, click “Read More” to view the first two videos. You can also visit the Taste site for full recipes and more.
