Without a doubt this has to be one of the most spectacular food events of the year. The creme de la creme of Brooklyn food came out to put on one hell of a shindig to raise money and awareness for the good work done by City Harvest.
The first people to greet you when you walked into the event, held in Dumbo in the sell of an old spice factory almost directly under the Brooklyn Bridge, were the people responsible for the recycling of all the plates, forks, spoons, bottles and everything else. How cool is that?
This gal was great and doing something I thought was very unique: she is making super tasty very aggressively flavored drink called "Switzel" using a base of organic black strap molasses. The recipe is based on an "historic drink with it's roots in the West Indies". Check out her website City Lasses for more information on how to get a hold of some of her amazing beverages.
