Feedfeed, the popular social media-forward cooking community, is realizing one of their dreams this fall by opening a physical space in Bushwick.
Located at 106 Knickerbocker Avenue, the enormous, 3,000-square-foot place has a test kitchen and event space where anyone, member of the their community or not, who they approve can use the space free of charge. In the months to come The Feedfeed team also hopes to create a New York makers series where they host temporary and long-term installations featuring products made by New York artisans.
“Bushwick is such a creative community which is what attracted us initially, and we plan to bring together The Feedfeed community members, local makers to feature them, promote their products in the space, host holiday pop-ups, art openings and more,” Dan Resnick of The Feedfeed said.
Dan and Julie Resnick began Feedfeed four years ago after moving from the city out east. At the time Feedfeed was a way to connect with others who loved food by curating cooking inspirations and recipes people we were finding on Instagram and other networks. The platform quickly exploded in popularity and became an online community space for home chefs to connect and share tips.
The soon-to-open brick-n-mortar location gives an offline face and place to that community. Located on the second-floor or an old warehouse, The Feedfeed team spent months renovating the space and the result is a large, yet homey-feeling environment with desks in one area, couches for gathering in another (Room & Board sponsored the furniture) and a state of the art open kitchen (sponsored by Kitchen Aid) that’ll make any guest green with envy.
“The space in Brooklyn is just the begining us of having physical spaces,” Dan said, hinting at the possibility of Feedfeed opening up locations in other cities in the near future.
Feedfeed has already hosted several events in the space including a dinner by Bonbite catering that used 80 percent food scraps as part of our upcoming Food Loves Tech (FLT) event. Speaking of FLT, Feedfeed is powering the demo kitchen where, next weekend on November 3-4, chefs including Mike Anthony of Gramercy Tavern and Suzanne Cupps of Untitled will be cooking up small plates with innovative ingredients.
