Meet Chef Andrew Carmellini—two-time James Beard award-winner, Food & Wine’s Best New Chef of 2000 and Michelin-starred master of Italian (Locanda Verde), American (The Dutch) and French (Lafayette) cuisines. He’s a triple threat of the most delicious kind. But it’s his bakery at Lafayette in NYC’s NoHo that has completely mesmerized us. Carmellini’s classic French desserts have developed a cult-like following. Colorful macarons are filled with seasonally-flavored buttercream, beautiful Chantilly cakes are dusted with rose, and funfetti ring dings are filled with delicate cream and nostalgia. And, for the very first time, Chef Carmellini is shipping his elegant desserts nationwide for a very limited time exclusively for Mother’s Day.
