Russet Brings Traditional Craftsmanship to the Table

Trey Popp visits Russet, the new BYOB from Andrew and Kristen Woods.

The Woods’ seasonable-and-sustainable credo is familiar, but their Old World sensibility gives Russet a traditionalist rather than trendy vibe. He makes pastas from Lancaster wheat, rolling out some shapes on a chitarra crafted by an old artisan in Chester County. She makes a butterscotched, Calvados-creamed apple mille-feuille that’s to die for.
