      $5 Tickets for our Butchery 101 with Fleisher’s, Marlow & Daughters and Brooklyn Cured Next Week at Brooklyn Brewery

      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.

      With Two Weeks to Go, Here’s How to Buy a Thanksgiving Turkey from the Greenmarket

      Dig this helpful guide from the folks at GrowNYC, the non-profit group behind city Greenmarkets. It’s a list of which of their farmers citywide are selling turkeys, plus how to order them and where you can pick them up. Don’t forget the butchers at Dickson’s Farmstead Meats in Chelsea Market or your mail-order friends at Fleisher’s and Heritage Foods USA. (The latter will probably let you order from their new Heritage Meat Shop in Essex Market, too.)
