What We’re Doing:
Monday: Scotch has had a complicated history, and you can find out all about it—along with a tasting—at Brooklyn Brainery.
Tuesday: Make “market value-added farm products” (we’re talking pickles, jams and more) in this Farm School NYC course.
Wednesday: La Plaza Cultural-Armando Perez community garden members will show you how to make rosemary flatbread on a grill.
Thursday: Avocado skins and pits apparently create a beautiful pink tone when used as dye. Learn all about it at this class at Tinyfield Roofhop Farm.
Friday: A completely vegetarian Seasonal Chef’s Table at Brooklyn Kitchen will get you creating dishes using the best produce available.
Saturday: Spend the afternoon immersed in mezcal and barbecue, as a way to celebrate Greenpoint.
Sunday: Get on the roof at Rooftop Reds for their Ribs and Rosé event—it’s exactly what it sounds like, which sounds pretty good.
Coming Soon: We have a German Feast panel coming up at Brooklyn Brewery on October 5, and get a taste of a wide range of global cuisines at Edible Escape on October 20.
