Eat, Drink And Be indie: Tasty Recipes, Inspiring Maker Stories & Exclusives

Bushwick Kitchen

Self-proclaimed “homemade gourmet” Casey and his entrepreneur pal Morgen share similar recipes for a life well-lived: mix the unexpected and expect to be pleasantly surprised. Fittingly, this philosophy defines both their company and its products. The Brooklyn, New York business partners are a harmonious balance of beard, belly and brains, with Casey spearheading aspects of appetite and Morgen taking care of business.

Their Bees Knees Spicy Honey is one of those why-didn’t-anyone-think-of-this-already products: delicious, smooth honey with a slow-burning spicy kick that makes it irresistible to drizzle over just about anything. Casey’s smothers-of-choice include pizza, mac-and-cheese and “his beard”; while Morgen likes a drizzle on any grilled meat, breakfast food or roasted veggies.

They’re supplied by a Hudson Valley beekeeper who doesn’t “trust anyone who isn’t a person,” lives completely off the grid and only deals in cash—and produces some seriously delicious honey to boot. The boys got Bushwick Kitchen up and running in just 30 days. And since the crazy-tasty, versatile Spicy Honey is only the first in an anticipated line of unique mash-ups, we’re sure we’ve got a lot to look forward to from these savvy fellows.
