Set for February 19, the dinner will support an organization that represents, organizes and engages young farmers.
Hungry? Our events calendar has loads of Edible events around the city, like Marlow & Sons Summer Fair to raise money to help save NY organic grain wonder Cayuga Pure Organics, and a bevy of DIY cooking know-how from Steak 101 to dinner party prowess, and more. Here’s what’s happening this week:
After a fire leveled their grain and bean-production facilities upstate, non-GMO Cayuga Pure Organics could use a little help getting back on their feet.
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.
Slow Money creates new ways of funding local, sustainable food and agriculture companies, and the Brooklyn chapter is buzzing.
For oenophiles, it is an upstate eden.
Thanks to NOFA and farmers, local grains are making a comeback.
