The New Brooklyn Cookbook
, with recipes and stories from 31 BK restaurants including WORD favorite 5 Leaves, gives you a who’s who of local foodies, a peek into their kitchens, and drool-worthy recipes. You almost feel bad for Manhattan after flipping through this one. $40.00
Jenn Northington of Word is offering a 10% discount off these picks – just mention Greenpointers at the register to get it!
Also, this weekend Saturday 12/11 and Sunday 12/12 from Noon to 4pm, Word is hosting their Second Annual Holiday Open House. It’s a perfect time to stop in and pick up gifts!
It’s a two-day party, and everyone is invited! Many of our favorite authors will be moonlighting as booksellers, sharing their recommendations, helping out with bagging and gift-wrapping, and signing. There will also be nibbles and a few special activities (holiday movies, anyone?) for all and sundry. Donations for gift-wrapping will benefit the Greenpoint Food Pantry
which, as of this Thanksgiving, hands out more than 400 bags of groceries per week.
