We’ll be whooping it up at BAM tomorrow night at our annual Brooklyn Uncorked event celebrating both the terrior of the East End as well as our own newly minted James Beard award-winning deputy editor, Rachel Wharton.
And it just so happens to be Cinco de Mayo too, so you can double book your dance card and hop over to Palo Santo in Park Slope post-Uncorked to continue the fete with sangria and mole (make sure to call ahead to let ’em know you’re coming).
Connect with the thriving community of good food advocates at the Brooklyn Food Coalition’s one year anniversary party and admire how much the borough has accomplished since their ground-breaking Food Conference last May. To that end, did you know Evolutionary Organics is now offering a compost service at the Grand Army Plaza Greenmarket? Give your banana peels and coffee grounds a higher place in their afterlife, and send ’em back to the farm in New Paltz.
On the other side of the border, the Queens Country Farm Museum kicks off a season of dinners on the farm in partnership with Tamara Reynolds, author of Forking Fantastic! And back in the East Village a week-long homage to pig at Jimmy’s No. 43 begins on Sunday evening.
Check out Local Gourmands or our calendar page for a full list of upcoming local food events, locations, and times. We look forward to seeing you soon!
