Good Spirits is one of our favorite events and we love showcasing new distilleries each year as craft spirits continue to gain popularity.
On the 12th day of Christmas, our editorial staff made a wish list. Our list is inspired both by near and far, but undeniably has one common theme: what we like to eat, and how and where we like to enjoy it.
Yes indeed, friends, 80 years ago today, we won back the right to dream, create, craft and imbibe whatever we like, whenever we like. Celebrate your freedom with this all-NY aperitif.
Last week we kicked off the summer season with a taste of Long Island in the heart of downtown Brooklyn at Brooklyn Uncorked. Wine sippers and food noshers descended on the spectacular Skylight One Hanson (aka the former Williamsburg Savings Bank), where we raised our glass (many times) to celebrate 40 years of Long Island wine making.
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.
We’re not happy that it’s the last weekend for Winterfest, Long Island wine country’s annual celebration of music, food and, of course, wine. But…
A visit to Long Island wine country will leave you refreshed and sated.
