This summer, we partnered with Hendrick’s Gin for a cocktail contest and asked bartenders from Manhattan to Montauk to compete. Here are the winner’s drinks.
With judges including Michael Pollan, Alice Waters and Anna Lappé, the contest is a great opportunity to experiment with a short film to show how you are helping to build a better food system.
What do Brooklyn and Sweden have in common? One lucky singer-songwriter will find out in Brooklyn Brewery’s Sweden Song Contest going on now.
Last night we had the luck to have dinner at Roman’s in Fort Greene (whose spicy brick chicken is just as cult-creating as the bird at Marlow & Sons, perhaps because they share the same owners) with Fernando Music and Fran Gaitanaros–the smart and forward-thinking owners of The Rooster Design Group–less than an hour after the winner of their third Next Big Small Brand contest was announced at the public event at BAM.
Each week we’re picking one reader of Edible Brooklyn.com or Edible Manhattan.com to win prizes like charcoal grills, Breville kitchen appliances, a Bodum French press or even a year’s subscription to our own magazines. This week’s winner will receive this killer Fyrkat 13.4-inch portable charcoal grill.
Drum roll, please. Here are the four winners of our recent contest for best food songs. For best “song-about-food” nomination from our Brooklyn entrants, we agree with Rodney Bedsole that “Green Onions” by Booker T and the MGs is the coolest, hippest food song ever. (Plus the Times just did a whole feature on Booker T’s new solo projects this past weekend!) “Just try to listen to it without tapping your toes or feeling your body start to groove with the rhythm,” says Bedsole.
