Hungry? Our events calendar is packed full of Edible events around the city. Here’s what’s happening this week.
If you’re like us, weather this great gives us the itch to dine outdoors. On August 10th we’re heading out to the East End for a night of ethnic eats and local beer and wines, all served a la food truck.
Here’s a recipe from our current issue for gazpacho (read the whole story here), which jazzes up the classic soup with anise hyssop leaves–available at the Greenmarket if you don’t have a field to forage it in.
While we’d advocate for everybody shopping at farmers markets year round, there’s truly no time like summer to appreciate the bounty of local goods at our fingertips.
If you didn’t read the May/June issue of Edible Manhattan, here’s a glimpse at some of the deliciousness you missed (and links to a few of the stories from the mag).
Our new summer issue—with stories on Dominican snow cones, ice cream sandwiches, fancy ketchup, the city’s hometown sodas, homebrewers and beekeepers, chef Dave Pasternack, the man behind New Amsterdam Market and much more–doesn’t hit doorsteps for another two weeks. But if you’re in need of beachside reading material this week, you’re in luck. Our digital edition is available now, and looks just as pretty as it does in print.
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.
We’re thrilled to announce our fourth annual Eat Drink Local Week begins today. You can search our entire Eat Drink Local guide here, which includes listings…
