Tin Pot Creamery finalist in national ?American Made? competition

Uploaded: Oct 10, 2014
Palo Alto's Tin Pot Creamery is one of the finalists in Martha Stewart's 2014 American Made awards, which spotlights the best in local and handmade food, crafts, design and style across the country.

"We believe we are in the midst of a shift in our culture where creative entrepreneurs are defining a new American economy," the American Made website reads. "From Detroit to Des Moines, Spokane to St. Louis, people are choosing Main Street over mini-malls?supporting the local and the handmade. Our country's makers are sparking this change by taking a leap, banking on their creativity and craftsmanship, and living their version of the American dream."

The small-batch creamery has made it in the sweets and baked good subsection of the food category. Former Facebook pastry chef Becky Sunseri opened the small-batch creamery at Town & Country Village last summer.

Every year there is an overall award winner as well as an "audience choice" award winner voted in by fans. If you're a Tin Pot enthusiast, you can vote up to six times per day through Monday, Oct. 13 to help them win.

There are numerous finalists, but only 12 from the Bay Area in the food category (the San Jose Mercury conveniently lists them on its food and drink blog) and no one else from the Peninsula.
