Congrats to Chef Jason Weiner, Who Cooks on Two Islands and Was Winner of Last Night’s Latke Cook-Off

Congratulations to chef Jason Weiner of Almond restaurant–there’s one in both Bridgehampton in Long Island and on East 22nd Street–who won last night’s Edible Brooklyn/Great Performances latke fest and cook-off at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. We’re especially pleased that Weiner’s latke, a last-minute entry, was topped with smoked bluefish caught by one of his Long Island staffers, and that it was mama Weiner’s recipe: An Edible-minded creation if there ever was one.
