Giant congrats to the North Fork Table & Inn’s Claudia Fleming, who has been named one of the most Influential Women in Food by Elle Magazine! Dubbed “Goddess of New American Pastry” in the gallery of 11 of the top lady chefs in the world, she’s in superlative company. A few of the other women who made it onto the list include Traci Des Jardins, Lidia Bastianich, Gabrielle Hamilton and Barbara Lynch.
The 2000 James Beard Award Pastry Chef of the Year is also co-owner of The North Fork Food Truck–one of my very favorite places to grab a delicious bite on the go. Before becoming co-owner of the Southold-based North Fork Table & Inn–which is truly one of the very best food experiences a person can have–Claudia honed her considerable talents at Manhattan’s Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Cafe and TriBeCa Grill.
Kudos to you Claudia! Much deserved!!
