Today learn about the chemistry of onions and garlic with NYUs chemistry department, and then pop over to Jimmys No. 43 to mingle with farmer Mike Kokas of Upstate Farms to have a beer and sign up for a season with the Paisley Farm CSA.
Karen Washington, Community Gardener extraordinaire, talks about the future of urban agriculture and the vital role the community green spaces will play in how we continue to feed the city, and out in Bushwick the burgeoning Bushwick Food Co-op continues its film series with a screening of Food Matters.
Tonight the Culinary Historians of New York give the history of ice cream its just desserts when Jeri Quinzio, IACP award-winning author of Sugar and Snow, pontificates about the treat that has been a favorite of kings and kids for centuries.
By the time the weekend rolls around, we hope the sun will make its presence known once again, as the Greenpoint Food Market is planning a picnic in McGolrick Park and the New Amsterdam Market merchants are taking up temporary residence in the New York Marble Cemetery in the East Village. Just in case, their rain date is Sunday, May 23.
We hope to see you around and about sooner than later, and in the meantime, check our calendar page or Local Gourmands for a full list of events, times, and locations.
