The dessert plate is her blank canvas and she makes use of the full range of senses to make delicious and approachable sweets. As Chef Goldsmith puts it, “My desserts have an interesting way of getting people excited.”
She delves into her approach of re-envisioning commercial childhood favorites — like Twinkies. She harnesses the wide-eyed exuberance of youth in refined and beautiful packages with her signature creativity.
When foodies and food scribes wax on can’t miss desserts in South Florida, no other name elicits a more passionate response than that of Hedy Goldsmith, Executive Pastry Chef at Michael's Genuine Food & Drink.
Chef Goldsmith creates desserts with simple, straightforward flavors presented in interesting combinations. Her work often balances savory and sweet, drawing from local fruits and herbs and unexpected techniques like roasting and smoking.
