If this warm, then cold, then warm, then freezing weather has affected you like it has us, your throat is aching and you feel more like cuddling up under a blanket than picnicking in the park. This recipe for Warm Spiced Ginger Tea is the perfect remedy for the where-is-spring blues.

When you hit the Greenmarket this weekend, pick up some Farmer Ground Flour (sold at the Cayuga Pure Organics stands) and try this earthy, rustic pound cake from June Russell, farm inspection manager for the Greenmarkets. Made of cornmeal, buckwheat and wheat, it’s a cross between cake and cornbread and makes a wonderful winter treat.
When we offered to throw in a free copy of “Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook” with a subscription to our magazine, we knew it’d be a hit. But wow! The response to our offer has been even more positive than we could have imagined. So we’re extending the deadline for anybody who hasn’t had a chance to sign up.
When we published Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook back in October, we intended for it to be a community cookbook, a snapshot via 100 collected recipes from the cooks in our community, be they restaurant chefs, gardeners, grandmothers, pickle-makers, cheesemongers, brewers, bakers or baristas. Needless to say that’s sparked plenty of discussion on what real Brooklyn food is. We’re going to let you help us decide with the help of a panel of four Brooklyn food experts and cookbook contributors on January 17 at the Tenement Museum.
With apologies to the New Yorker, we’re pleased as Hot Gin Punch to present the Hendrick’s Gin cartoon caption contest. With help from this artisanal, small-batch gin, we’re offering three lucky readers who can best caption the image above two seats apiece to an invitation-only Edible Brooklyn: The Cookbook dinner inside “The Hendrick’s Enchanted Forest,” the pretty awesome indoor forest installation they’re bringing to Brooklyn for the very first time.
If you skipped the Edible Brookyn Cookbook sale and signing at Union Square Greenmarket today (that’s us below) no worries: The book’ll be back at Manhattan’s biggest market next month. (You can also score a signed copy at the Barnes & Noble tomorrow night in Park Slope, Brooklyn, or on Saturday at Brooklyn’s Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket.) But you also missed the cauliflower wizardry of market manager David Sherman. He’s there every Monday and Wednesday, and when some famous chef or cookbook author isn’t cooking for shoppers, he is.
Yesterday marked the official publication date of the Edible Brooklyn cookbook, a project our sister publication started nearly a year ago to the day. It’s a beautiful book of more than 100 recipes and stories from local readers, cooks, farmers, gardeners, picklers, brewers, egg cream makers and other food producers from the borough of Kings. You can order a copy in all the normal places–Barnes & Noble.com, Amazon, etc.– but seeing as we’re Edible Manhattan, we’d be remiss not to tell you to track it down in a local bookshop, or even at a local Greenmarket, where we’ll be selling and signing copies throughout the rest of the month.
