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.
Even a week or two after the release of our first-ever Dairy Issue, we’re still thinking about some of the things we couldn’t squeeze in. For starters, plenty of photographs. The gallery above contains a few favorites that didn’t make the cut, as picked by our photo editor Rebecca McAlpin.
The James Beard Foundation has just announced the semi-finalists for its 2012 food journalism awards and we’re thrilled to announce that our former photo editor Michael Harlan Turkell has been nominated for the Visual Storytelling category for three restaurant profiles that appeared in this magazine.
Once school is out for the summer, even the most dedicated after-school farmer will turn to sugary popsicles and video games in the comfort of an air-conditioned living room if left to his or her own devices. The good news is parents looking to avoid this now have a plethora of summer camps geared toward food, cooking and farming to choose from.
Classic public school curricula in big cities used to mean reading, writing, history and arithmetic, but a supermarket and Westchester agricultural non-profit hope to expand that list to include food and farming.
Forget Yo Gabba Gabba Live, there’s a new show in town that has gotten children all riled up with excitement – the James Beard Foundation Family Chef Series at the Museum of Manhattan on the Upper West Side.
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.
Earlier this week we got a whiff of chocolate, but it wasn’t from a heart-shaped box. Rather, it was from a flask—one of those little glass flasks with the typewriter-written labels from Kings County Distillery in Brooklyn. In time for the biggest chocolate buying day of the year the city distillery released a chocolate-flavored whiskey, available in Manhattan at the Park Avenue Liquor Shop. (We’d get on getting one stat, if we were you, since we hear Park Ave is already going through their second case.)
There’s something about Tuesday that’s maybe a bit blah. It’s not quite Monday, but it’s definitely not Friday. Why not add some tasty excitement to it with a ticket to Good Spirits on February 28th from 6-9pm? You’d better hurry though, because they are flying. You won’t want to miss out on food and drink from over 50 of the city’s best restaurants and distillers, all for just $45 at Downstairs at 82 Mercer in Soho.
Along with the country’s trendsetting fashion designers, Manhattan is also the birthplace of what’s now de rigueur in any best-dressed kitchen
