A family enlists Brooklyn design-build firm MADE to renovate a brownstone using surplus and salvaged materials for a budget-conscious patina.
For most homeowners, the goal of renovating is to transform an existing space into an idealized domicile. Few couples, however, include both the architect whose training can precipitate a vision and the professional critic whose career is staked on evaluating the work of architects. No pressure!
On the cover of our March 2010 Recipe for Success issue, Chelsea Jackson sits at the kitchen island while her husband, Arthur, plates their dinner. What steals the shot from the Chef's Table article, however, is Chelsea's s'mores tart, looking divinely delicious at the end of the island. Chelsea, a certified pastry chef, happily sent us the recipe for the tart--which is her own combination of three recipes, two adaptations of existing recipes and one of her own--after a reader wrote in asking for the instructions. Roll up your sleeves and dive in.
