Be sure to take a peek at the current Edible segment airing on NY1 today and Sunday. (And online right here in perpetuity.) Based on a story in the current issue, it’s on Inside Park chef Matt Weingarten’s take on the Native American snack called pemmican, which has historically made use of both fall harvest foods on the Great Plains and a successful hunt for buffalo. It’s kind of like a cross between a granola bar and beef jerky.

In case you missed last week’s Edible episode on NY1–it’s on the spiked Scandinavian winter warmer called glögg–we wanted to point your attention both to the television segment (which you can find here online) as well as the Edible Manhattan article that inspired it, which includes the recipe for the drink, a heady, dangerously drinkable blend of sweet red wine heated up with a spike of citrus and some gingerbready spicing. We procured it from Morten Sohlberg—the Norwegian-born CEO of Smörgas Chef’ Restaurant Group, which runs three Smörgas Chef’ restaurants in Manhattan, including the one inside the Scandinavia House cultural center where we shot the piece for NY1.
In case you missed the most recent Edible segment on NY1 about the High Line’s Social Soup Experiment, a skyhigh, sustainably sourced picnic for 224 people, be sure to check out the online version of the clip. The event was put together by the High Line park to see what happens when dozens of New Yorkers from different backgrounds sit down together to share a meal — especially one that’s also historically appropriate: The High Line was originally used by trains transporting crops grown up river.
In addition to this list of can’t miss NYC Food Film Fest hits we told you about last week (Rockaway Tacos, Food Porn) they’ve added the last-minute addition of a documentary of every city foodie’s dreams: Best Thing I Ever Done. Yep, you guessed it, it’s a profile of Dominic DeMarco, the (literally) world-famous pizziaolo behind Di Fara’s Pizza in Midwood, Brooklyn. Better still, DiFara pizzas will star at the Manhattan premier of the flick, and will be specially delivered to Canal Street next Sunday by Film Fest staffers for a party the FFF is calling Di Fara Pizza Lunch.
On August 27th, professional city tour guide Matt Levy hosts one of his regular bike jaunts through Bushwick, East Williamsburg and Williamsburg. It’s a four-hour tour of a few of the remaining German brewery buildings left from the dozens that once dotted the area.
