Last month we promised to give away a booth at Sweet, the star-studded pastry party at the New York Wine and Food Festival this fall to the Eater reader that brought in the best dessert to Eater HQ. And after trying samples from over a dozen competitors here we have a winner. Jessica Mogardo, a pastry chef at Todd English's Da Campo Osteria won over the judges with her peach and dulce de leche shortbread with fresh peaches and cherries and a creme fraiche espuma. Gal came all the way up from Fort Lauderdale, has some definite skill, and was smart enough to bring back up brownies in case her spuma went awry.
Our second place winner, Amy Ingenhutt, brought chocolate covered prosciutto and melon cigars and wins two tickets to the event. A special thanks to all the runners up, and stay tuned for more giveaways in the coming months. If you want to get tickets of your own, that can be arranged here.
