Samantha Kincaid, the pastry chef at Fork restaurant, has been named one of the best new pastry chefs in the country by Food & Wine magazine.
Kincaid's bittersweet almond dessert was particularly recognized. It's made with a base of house-made liqueur prepared with apricot pits steeped in brandy.
"Growing up as a farmer's daughter, I have always had a passion for using local and seasonal fruits, and I hope that is evident in every one of my desserts," Kincaid said in a statement. "This is such an honor for me personally and a tribute to the teams here at Fork, High Street on Market and a.kitchen."
