About Brooks Headley

Brooks Headley was executive pastry chef at Del Posto, a New York Times-rated four-star restaurant, in New York City. He left Del Posto to open a vegetarian burger bar, Superiority Burger. He didn’t intend to become a pastry chef. A punk rock drummer from a food-obsessed Calabrian family, with a bachelor's degree in English language and literature, he literally fell into restaurant work at age 27.

"A twofer of tasty slipshod special desserts tonight: seared focaccia pudding with huckleberry jam, coconut gelato, and candied lime, AND focaccia crumb-coated vegan chocolate pie with pistachio-olive oil and grapefruit. Hurry. Don't blow it. Bring cash."
