In this week’s NY1 segment, we visited Hayseed’s Big City Farm Supply in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, an urban farming shop and training center that will be open through June.
If a peek at Dean & Deluca’s Easter catalog had you yearning to taste Greek traditional foods, there’s a reason.
We were pleased years ago when Whole Foods launched sustainably-minded color-coding at the fish counter, as per the Blue Ocean Institute. Starting April 22 the grocer is phasing out the red-flagged fish altogether.
A reader writes in to tell about our recent profiles of Alleva Dairy and Murray’s Cheese in the current Dairy issue, remembering several decades of shopping at both of these incredible shops, which now requires half a day’s drive: “I now live in exile in Maryland, and happily drive 4 hours to shop at both institutions.”
This week’s Edible Manhattan NY1 segment covered the incredible soft serve created by Momofuku Milk Bar chef and co-owner Christina Tosi. One thing we weren’t able to squeeze into the piece is the roster of new flavors Tosi–who is as eloquent and intelligent as she is creative in the pastry kitchen–is planning for May 1.
By March, the majority of my being is eager to see Winter kicked to the curb and Spring ascendant. But a recent trip to the famous Bi-Rite Market on 18th Street in San Francisco’s Mission District reminded me of one reason to miss the season, and that is citrus.
Since Anne Saxelby first opened her eponymous stall in the Essex Street Market in 2006–essentially redefining American cheese–she’s taken strolls or bike-rides around and down all the crooked streets that define this part of Lower Manhattan, which sits in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge. Consider it her way of meeting her neighbors, and soaking up the diversity, edible and otherwise, that still haunts this nabe.
A few months back each Edible publication around the country asked their readers to tell them about their favorite local heroes–the farmer who raises the most perfect ruby radishes and pastured pigs; the chef who rocks not just the kitchen but a sense of community; the non-profit that’s changing the way people eat in parts of the borough that need it most; the cheesemonger with a heart of gold and even better Gouda.
Vegetarians and vegans beware, we’re gearing up for a meat-tacular evening this Wednesday! Carnivores, aspiring butchers and meat molders, plan on joining us at the Brooklyn Brewery on February 22nd from 8 pm to 10 pm as we learn all there is to know about slicing, curing and tying meats.
How often do you get a chance to learn how to properly tie a roast? Stuff a sausage? Butcher a bird? Not too often? Never at all? Yup, we didn’t think so. In our upcoming installment of our popular How to series, we’ve gathered some of the best butchers around to show you how it’s done. How to Slice it will go down at the Brooklyn Brewery on Wednesday, February 22nd from 8 pm to 10 pm with doors opening at 7:30 pm.

Today on our weekly NY1 television segment we visit Orwasher’s Bakery on the Upper East Side, whose 100-year-old basement brick ovens were bought by Keith Cohen in 2007. (And were profiled in the last issue of the magazine, to boot.) As you’ll see in the piece (online right here), Cohen bought the place with a vision to make true artisan breads using the best of both old-fashioned techniques and new ideas. But we forgot to tell you about his amazing jelly doughnuts.
