Lopate & Locavores: Made in New York
Wednesday, October 10, 2012
The Greene Space recently presented the third annual LOPATE AND LOCAVORES event series spotlighting New York City’s local food scene.
Being made in New York is no longer a small thing: NYC products are being marketed to the world! The events of the evening featured three foodies who have been making a name for New York through their products – STEVE HINDY of Brooklyn Brewery, MARK ROSEN, the second of three generations of SABRETT’S hot dogs, and ANNA WOLF of My Friend’s Mustard. Later in the evening, SCOTT BRIDI, founder, Brooklyn Cured joined in along with SIGGI HILMARSSON, of Siggi’s Yogurt, with demos on how to make sausage and yogurt.
To welcome the audience members, former Battle of the Boroughs 2012 contestant, Matthew Foster-Moore performed at 6:30 PM.
Hosted by WNYC’s LEONARD LOPATE, a three-time James Beard Award winner, this year’s series explored today’s rising culinary stars and their “Master Chef” mentors, the phenomenon behind foraged food, and how New York City food products are becoming increasingly recognized in the worldwide market. Each event had a themed demo presented by the evening’s guests. Audience members also had an opportunity to sample various foods and beverages and enjoy a complimentary glass of wine at each event.
