Greenwich Village Bartender Keeps THE FLAVOR BIBLE On Her Shelves

Troy Patterson of interviews Dante bartender Stacey Swenson at her home, where he spies THE FLAVOR BIBLE on her bookshelves:  “Next to it, on a shelf otherwise full of cocktail compendiums and culinary guides such as THE FLAVOR BIBLE, I spot an oddity of a book with a broad spine, titled The Physics of Elliptical Motion.”

The Highball That This Top Bartender Makes for Herself at Home

Stacey Swenson is the head bartender at Dante in New York’s Greenwich Village. Created by Naren Young in 2015 at the site of Caffé Dante, founded exactly 100 years earlier, the bar is acclaimed for a cocktail menu focusing on its Italian heritage and featuring an array of riffs on the Aperol Spritz and Negroni, among takes on such classics as the Garibaldi and Pimm’s Cup.

Mixologist Matt Seiter Brings CULINARY ARTISTRY Behind the Bar

Bartender and author Matt Seiter gives a shout-out to CULINARY ARTISTRY in Feast magazine:  “About 20 years ago, the chef I worked under gave me a book to read: CULINARY ARTISTRY by Andrew Dornenburg and Karen Page. It detailed about every fruit, veggie, cheese, spice and flavor imaginable, and listed what ingredients pair well with it – and just as important, what doesn’t. It helped me create sauces and fully composed dishes that were unique and hit all the senses.  Fast forward 10 years, and I used that same book to introduce new drinks behind the bar. I looked at bartending from a chef’s perspective; I was just working with more liquids than solids, and the vessels I used to serve people were glasses instead of plates. Taking notes from that book and knowing the flavor profiles of the spirits behind the bar, I’ve come up with some interesting combinations over the years. One that I always return to in the summer is watermelon-cucumber-basil. Here, those ingredients are used to make a garden-inspired cooler perfect for serving on hot June days.”

Arizona Cocktail Week Winner Credits THE FLAVOR BIBLE As Inspiration

Stephanie Bray of Phoenix New Times interviews 2017 Arizona Cocktail Week contest winner Elliott Clark on his inspirations, which include THE FLAVOR BIBLE:  “Once he mastered the basics, he built on those classic recipes and added other ingredients.  Clark drew inspiration for his drinks from the classic cocktails and seasonal flavors. He used THE FLAVOR BIBLE, a reference book for culinary cooking, to help him construct drinks.  “For me, nowadays it’s not so much about throwing all this booze in a glass and seeing how it turns out. It’s more about understanding the building blocks of a good drink, and based on those building blocks, playing with different flavors,” says Clark.

Move Over Home Cooks, This is the Year of the Home Bartender

Elliott Clark didn’t go to culinary school. In fact, he earned a business marketing degree from Arizona State University. But during a visit to New York City in 2015, Clark took a Cocktails 101 class that sparked his passion for mixing drinks, which ultimately became his career path.
