Æbleskivers in New York Magazine!

Look familiar? If you've visited Aunt Else's Æbleskiver booth at the Mill City Farmers Market it will.

I received an email a few months back from chef Shannon Wilkinson (former producer of Top Chef) while she was in the process of opening a new restaurant called Henry Public, in the Cobble Hill neighborhood of  Brookly, NY. Shannon was including æbleskiver, a childhood family favorite, on Henry Public’s menu and was in search of an aebleskiver pan that would work well in her restaurant’s busy kitchen.

She had seen the photos on of the 12-hole cast iron æbleskiver pans we cook with at our booth during the Mill City Farmer’s Market and wanted some for herself.  I happily connected her with the local Minneapolis man who makes the dozen-hole pans, Vagn Jensen.

Fast forward a few months, and I was really excited to see that Shannon’s new restaurant, Henry Public, had opened and was featured in New York Magazine along with an excellent (and gigantic) photo of Vagn’s pan! You can read the entire article that appeared in New York Magazine here.

Best of luck to Shannon, Vagn & Henry Public!

  1. Yay! That’s so great, congrats.

  2. That’s so cool! congratulations! I need to check it out at her restaurant when I’m there next time.

  3. Interesting story! With a minor correction needed. The chef who opened Henry Public is not a “she” but a “he”. Shannon Wilkinson now resides in Seattle with his his wife, Laura Baker, and their young daughter Hazel. For all you Northwest Fans, he is opening his new restaurant Little Water Cantina by years end. It is situated on the east side of Lake Union with an incredible water view. Shannon will offer scrumptious south of the border menu items that are original, organic and locally sourced. Recently, at a July 4th celebration he served a black been concoction that made me sigh and pile more onto my pulled turkey taco. Cheers!
