Now TASTE this, and this, and this…

Visiting the Green Market is a delight to all the senses. Ask Chef Carlino, a former teacher at Florida Culinary Institute who was recruited by our city to bring his students to the Green Market when it first started in October of 1994. “They [City of WPB] really wanted to have a lot of chef jackets down here at the Green Market to give it a cool credibility,” said Chef Carlino. “So, my students and I worked with the Market’s produce vendors and conducted cooking demonstrations so that people could taste this and this, and this!” He exclaimed as he gestured to all the different vendors at the Market—an attraction unto itself. His simple recipes made cooking look fun, and helped consumers make the most of both their buying and eating opportunities.

But this short story doesn’t end there. Chef Carlino asked the Market coordinator at that time if he could start doing cider donuts. Originally from Connecticut, he wanted to follow a tradition from when he was kid and bring it to West Palm Beach. At first, making cider donuts started as a hobby, and now, twelve years later, it is a thriving small business, and one of the Market’s favorite food stops.

Chef Carlino loves questions. If you have one, visit www.ciderdoughnuts.com
