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.

Next Wednesday Night Taste India, Mexico and Austria (and More) in the Amazing Angel Orensanz Center

From Eat Drink Local Week to Good Beer, Edible is known for throwing some of the most delicious food and drink-focused events in the city. Here’s two coming up soon you won’t want to miss, including our Edible Escape on Wednesday, October 19th in the Lower East Side. Between the Gildas from Txikito and Chana Masala Rolls from Kati Roll, there will be plenty of food, but what’s food without drink? We’ve got that covered as well, with Beer from Stella Artois to wine from Austria to The Darjeeling Unlimited, a concoction of Tuthilltown bourbon and Harney and Sons tea. For the rest of the line-up, check out our events page.

Two Can’t Miss Events: Baja Tacos and Butter Churning

Not many folks get to watch a butter churning demonstration blocks from the Bedford Avenue L train, but you can when you come to How to Milk It, the latest installment in our How-To series at Williamsburg’s Brooklyn Brewery. Anne Saxelby of Saxelby Cheese and Chef Fromager Tia Keenan will also be on hand for cheesy discussions. It’s How to Milk It on Wednesday, October 26th at the Brooklyn Brewery.
