From James Beard to Blogger: Hedy Goldsmith debuts as Food Network's sweetest new scribe


MGFD pastry chef is Food Network's newest blogger; will contribute recipes to this summer


By Lesley Abravanel |

Michael's Genuine Food & Drink pastry priestess Hedy Goldsmith is a very busy woman. On the heels of the release of her first cookbook, BAKING OUT LOUD: Fun Desserts with Big Flavors, the James Beard-nominated Goldsmith will juggle her time in the kitchens at MGFD and Harry's Pizzeria with contributing all new material to's FN Dish and original recipes to Goldsmith's posts on FN Dish will go live every other Wednesday, starting today.  "Some of my fondest early memories include trips to the Entenmann's bakery outlet with my mom and experiments in the Easy-Bake Oven," Goldsmith says. "As a pastry chef, keeping the fun in dessert is very important to me. I'm excited to help the home baker do the same with tips and recipes that any fan of crispy, crunchy, creamy, chocolaty, salty-sweet will love."  Goldsmith's gig starts in the summer and will include ten of her original recipes. There may be no rest, but at least there are lots of sweets, for the weary.
