Author of ‘Bean-to-Bar Chocolate: America’s Craft Chocolate Revolution’ Megan Giller gives us the most delicious places to go for chocolate in Brooklyn.
This past weekend, several Brooklyn-based vendors debuted as part of the Brooklyn Taste program at the Barclays Center. That’s an addition of 18 new businesses since last year.
Last Wednesday we kicked off the summer season with a taste of Long Island in the heart of downtown Brooklyn at Brooklyn Uncorked. Wine sippers and food noshers descended on the spectacular Skylight One Hanson (aka the former Williamsburg Savings Bank), where we raised our glass (many times) to celebrate 40 years of Long Island wine making.
Hungry? Our events calendar has loads of Edible events around the city, like An Evening with Mark Bittman where he’ll speak on “The Future of Food” and discuss how we can eat for the health of our bodies and the planet. Here’s what’s happening this week.
At this month’s sixth annual Brooklyn Uncorked, over 700 wine and food enthusiasts flooded the former Williamsburgh Savings Bank–a spectacular building with soaring ceilings that’s better known as Skylight One Hanson–to nibble and sip the various food and wine offerings from over 60 vendors.
Last week local cheesemongers, milk purveyors, ice cream makers and butter churners took over the giant white space–fitting for a dairy-filled evening–at The Openhouse Gallery in Soho. From the sweet to the savory, the endless samples reminded us why we love all things dairy.
In case the word hasn’t yet reached you, the folks here at Edible have been busy lately. We’ve been drumming up food trucks, local wines and dairy galore for these awesome upcoming events we’re sure you’ll enjoy.
Food trucks are synonymous with on-the-go eating, but every once and while, it’s nice to be able to sit down with it, enjoy several courses of it, and pair it with beers from the Brooklyn Brewery.

Slurping summer in Bay Ridge.
