Meet the New ACW!

ACW has grown a lot this year, and maybe the biggest change so far is that ACW has a new Chef/Co-Owner, Nima Etemadi!

Nima and I were best friends in college, but he stayed in NYC when I moved back to Philadelphia. Years later, with Nima as the Assistant Editor of Aperture magazine and me running ACW by night while teaching preschool by day, we both ended up quitting our careers to go to pastry school!

We just moved into an immaculate, new, commercial kitchen in the Globe Dye Works building, in Frankford, Philadelphia, and now Nima’s finally moved here, too! Between the new kitchen and the new team, I’m super excited about what 2012 has in store for ACW!!
