WATCH: The Faces (And More Importantly The Ingredients) Behind The Food Porn

New York Best's passion for pizza

New York Best's food could give you coronary artery disease just looking at it. It's a good thing their pizzas, burgers, breakfasts and desserts are actually to die for.

NYB foodporn is by now a ubiquitous sight on everybody's newsfeeds: the oozing cheese, the ludicrous stacks, the golden chicken nuggets. 

In fact, let's just pause for effect...

But behind all the sexiness, there's a lot of thought and passion, particularly about making things from scratch. In fact, every New York Best item is exclusive and custom-made: from milkshakes created with their own ice-cream machine to their signature brioche buns.

That's what inspired a documentary series: Made From Scratch, produced by filmmaker James Vernon.

Filmed over a few beers to help bring out the quirky (mostly tattooed) characters of the NYB team, the episodes show how various key ingredients are made, from the pizza sourdough, to the marinara sauce and the NYB mozzarella.

New York Best will soon be releasing the two last instalments of the series, featuring lots of sausages and burgers. You'll see them on Lovin Malta first. 

The idea for the series came from NYB founder Tommy Diacono and his advertising guru Benji Borg, from ANCHOVY.

"We wanted to show the passion behind the cooking," said Tommy Diacono. 

And thanks to the participation of some delightfully quirky chefs, the passion comes shining through.
