With an affinity for making lists (complete with check boxes), a history of smuggling goat cheese into college cafeterias and a never ending obsession to perfect her pie crust, it was only natural that Michaela Johnson would find her way into the position of planning and executing events for a food magazine.

    Meet Your Maker in Photos

    At last month’s Meet Your Maker, sweets were the name of the game as we teamed up with Ovenly, Mast Brothers Chocolate, and–they’re not technically dessert makers, we think they’re pretty sweet—the Brooklyn Brewery.

    How to Shake, Muddle & Stir in Photos

    Last week, in the latest installment in our How To series at the Brooklyn Brewery, we set out to teach an audience of curious New Yorkers How to Shake, Muddle and Stir…cocktails, that is. If you missed out on the cocktail lessons (and awesome eats from Food Freaks Grilled Cheese), check out the slideshow for a glimpse of the fun.

    We’re still coming down from our Eat Drink Local Week buzz (Without the ingredients of the week, what will we eat??) and reminiscing about our favorite events. For one of them–Meet Your Maker–we teamed up with the Brooklyn Brewery, Brooklyn Winery and NY Distilling Co. for behind-the-scenes tours of their facilities and learned how some of our favorite local beer, wine and spirits are made.

    Good Dairy In Photos

    Last week local cheesemongers, milk purveyors, ice cream makers and butter churners took over the giant white space–fitting for a dairy-filled evening–at The Openhouse Gallery in Soho. From the sweet to the savory, the endless samples reminded us why we love all things dairy.

    Photos from our Food Truck Drive-In Dinner

    Not even a little bit of rain could stop one and all from having a blast at last Wednesday’s Drive-In Dinner at the Brooklyn Brewery. Bongo Brothers, the Red Hook Lobster Pound, Feed Your Hole, the Morris Truck and Coolhaus transformed the block outside of the brewery into the tastiest place to be in Williamsburg.

    Good Dairy…or Excellent Dairy?

    Perhaps next week’s Good Dairy event should’ve been called Excellent Dairy. Judging by the lineup of decadent dairy and delightful drinks our vendors will be serving on April 25th, it looks like we’re in for a fabulous evening. And what could be more appropriate for our nightlong ode to dairy than the big, white space at the Openhouse Gallery on Mott Street in Nolita?
