      Missing the Latke Cook-Off in Brooklyn Tonight? The Daily News Has a Few of the Winning Recipes

      Tonight our sister publication Edible Brooklyn will be co-hosting the sold-out third annual Latke Cook-off at BAM, where 15 chefs and Dori Fern, the talented Edible reader who won the amateur recipe contest, will compete in the contest to crown the greatest Hanukah potato pancake of all. If you’re missing out, don’t worry, you can at least make Fern’s dish, as the Daily News did a preview piece on the event yesterday–scoring not just the recipe for her “Double-Happiness Latkes topped with Five-Spice Duck Confit” but those of a few of her fellow contestants, too.

      Greenmarket Hosts its First-Ever Dance Party, a Fundraiser for Farms

      In the past we’ve always worn heels to the Greenmarket’s swanky annual fundraiser–usually held at some fine hall here in Manhattan–but this time around we’re considering more practical footwear. In conjunction with Harvest Home, another non-profit group that runs farmers’ markets in the city, they’re hosting their first-ever dance party next Wednesday night, December 7th at the Bell House in Brooklyn. (It’s just a block or two from the F/R train.) Edible Brooklyn is co-sponsoring the shindig, which they’re calling the Winter Warm Up.

      The Mast Brothers Add 3,000 Square Feet, a Test Kitchen, Tours and a Finnish Pastry Chef

      The topic of our weekly NY1 show is just what you need after yesterday’s binge: dark chocolate. We took a trip to Mast Brothers Chocolates on North Third Street in Williamsburg, where the siblings behind the city’s first true bean-to-bar operation have just expanded their factory by 3,000 square feet and hired Finnish pastry chef Vesa Parviainen to run their new test kitchen.
