The 2018 National Award for Pastry Chef, awarded by the International Academy of Gastronomy (AIG), has gone to seven professionals including Mathew Rosenzweig and Laura Martelli, from The Flaky Tart in Atlantic Highlands.

The AIG, which includes culinary academies from some 25 countries, awards annually a series of national awards, such as that of pastry chef, which recognize several individuals and legal entities that have distinguished themselves in the field of gastronomy and food.

Owners Laura Martelli and Matthew Rosenzweig met while working as pastry chefs in 2009, with a shared background in art and a passion for baking. Drawing inspiration from fresh, local and seasonal ingredients, the two fashion sweet and savory delights with a worldly flair.
