Lopate and Locavores: Master Chefs Think Vegetables

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

7:00 PM

Vegetables are moving to the center of the plate in many of New York’s restaurants.  The art of cooking vegetables is the topic of this interactive event.  Lopate will be joined by DAN BARBER, named top chef in America by The James Beard Foundation in 2009, as well as the four-season farm manager at Stone Barns, JACK ALGIERE, who grows the produce for Barber’s restaurant, Blue Hill.  Chefs FRANK CASTRONOVO and FRANK FALCINELLI who’ve just opened Frankies 570 Spuntino (at Hudson and West 11th), which sources their produce from a local PA farm exclusively, will also participate and demonstrate some of their favorite vegetable cooking techniques.  There will also be a demonstration by Michaela Hayes of Crock & Jar, on how to can vegetables.
