Out of the armchair and into the marketplace: Natural Gourmet Institute’s Food Entrepreneurship certificate program helps make food business dreams a reality.
Over the course of the class, you’ll meet with entrepreneurs from businesses like Roberta’s, Quinciple, and our own magazine.
Robb Garceau — formerly of Jean-Georges, Union Square Events and Great Performances — has joined their team.
Last year, Katchkie CSA delivered 130,000 pounds of vegetables to both offices and their community pickup locations.
So what does a winning latke look like? Great Performances’s Liz Neumark and chef Matthew Riznyk share their seasonal recipe.
What happens when you assemble eight of the Empire State’s top chefs to prepare an historic brunch? You get to taste what a food and drink powerhouse this great state is.
The state of New York’s efforts to promote food and wine tourism were on full display last Saturday, when we joined a Metro North trainload of media and politically connected types on an outing to the 12th annual Hudson Valley Wine & Food Fest.
Liz Neumark may be caterer to the stars and starry projects, but Great Performances encompasses so much more than canapés and other culinary tricks of the trade.
Liz Newmark’s catering company with a conscience
When fall rolls around, do you pull out Bubby’s oil-stained latke recipe or do you make up your own modern version using beets from the Greenmarket? Are you a garnish purist, strictly sour cream or applesauce for you, or do you jazz your latkes up with jalapeños, strawberries or sriracha? We’re looking for the best of the borough for our December 10th Latke Festival at BAM, hosted with Great Performances.
The owners of Great Performances and Katchkie Farm–the Manhattan catering company and not-for-profit upstate agriculture center we wrote about last year–are launching a workplace CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) program for those who work too late to hit their neighborhood pickups, and the sign-up season is starting now. All you have to do is get 20 co-workers to sign up and they’ll create a pick up site at your office. For more information call 212.727.2424 and ask for Brooke or send an email to [email protected] You can sign up for a regular non-office CSA at one of their four other Manhattan pick up locations.
Now that we’ve tested our spud-mashing skills at Thanksgiving, it’s time for those of us celebrating Hanukah to turn our attention to the potato pancake. Specifically, the third annual Latke Festival our sister publication Edible Brooklyn is putting on with Great Performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on December 19th. (If you haven’t snagged your ticket here, now’s the time.)
