This Week On PLSR

Food conferences, food on clothing, & so much more!

Taste Talks The Publican
Toast from The Publican served at Taste Talks.

1. Taste Talks recently hosted its second conference in Chicago. The event consisted of two days filled with speakers, food, competitions, & so much more. I sat down with Kristina Mack of Broken Tart & pastry chef Matt Rice of The Publican to pick their brains about all things food. Mack & Rice both agreed one of their favorite sweet treats to make is ice cream. However, when asked about any secret ingredients they use Rice confessed to switching up a staple ingredient in baking. “I used to do a s’mores cookie & I would do graham cracker crumbs in place of part of the flour so it gives it a super graham-y flavor. That’s also a good opportunity to use cereal in a cookie, grinding up cereal & using that as part of the flour, too.” said Rice. Kristina agreed in the fact that, “mixing up flours is my secret ingredient for cookies. You can create such different textures as opposed to just using all-purpose [flour].” Check out some of our favorite cookie recipes below!
