After picking up the pieces of her now defunct — and award-winning — spice shop in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Spice Revolution owner Lindsay Jean Fastiggi took the brand on tour the next few years — hitting the farmers’ market circuit in and around Westchester, Putnam, Rockland… even Bergen County.
Her next ambitious move is to open Revolution Kitchen — a from scratch and locally sourced bakery and takeout food spot in Mahopac — featuring her brand of pastries, breads, cookies, muffins, biscuits, and cakes. The location will also house her spice and chocolate shop, stocking more than 300 spices and 40 varieties of handcrafted chocolate including a number of dairy-free and soy-free selections. She’s got the location in Mahopac lined up and has taken to the interwebs and crowdfunding to make it happen — her plan is to be open by this Mother’s Day.
The Kickstarter campaign launched this morning — its duration is 30 days — with Fastiggi looking to raise $42,0000 to sign the lease, purchase equipment and hire more employees. Backer rewards include boxes of cookies, cooking classes, chocolate tastings, tickets to Revolution Kitchen events and private dinner parties. Full information can be viewed at the campaign’s page.
