We’re thrilled to announce our fourth annual Eat Drink Local week, an eight-day locavore love fest for our foodshed celebrated by Edibles around the tri-state area. For one week, starting June 22nd, we urge you to show some love for our local food system by dining out, cooking in and enjoying local, seasonal ingredients.
At his West Village Japanese restaurant, Chef Takashi Inoue features all sorts of unusual cuts of meat. Taking the nose-to-tail trend to a whole new level, customers will find animal parts unheard of on other menus (cow’s testicles, calf’s brains, and three kinds of cow stomach among them) prepared in inventive new ways.
Wowza! When we asked you, dear readers, to send us your pics of an ingredient or dish that makes you heart NY, we hardly expected such a response. Now we need your help sifting through these beauties to choose a winner to send this cookbook to.
Hungry? Our events calendar has loads of Edible events around the city, like tomorrow’s pig butchering demo at Jimmy’s No. 43 where farmer Michael Klampfer from Møsefund Mangalista Farm will break down half a Mangalista hog. Light lunch to follow. Here’s what’s happening this week.
At Cookshop, sourcing locally is serious business. From a strict Made-in-America-only cheese policy to the grand six-foot chalkboard displaying the names of the farmers who provide the restaurant’s ingredients, every touch celebrates our local foodshed.
Come May 29th, we’ll be sipping award-winning Long Island wines and feasting on some of the finest fare in Brooklyn (and Manhattan). Here are just a few things we’ll be tasting.
We got our hands delightfully dirty making this issue—and hope you’ll have just as much fun digging in.
As an ode to New York, Daniel Humm and Will Guidara, the chef/manager team behind Eleven Madison Park and NoMad restaurants, have teamed up and released a gorgeous cookbook showcasing the ingredients, farmers and bounty of the Empire State. Now we’re giving away a free copy to one lucky reader.
