There are two food competitions happening this Sunday 9/16/12 right here in Greenpoint and Greenpointers will be at both!
Brew n’ Chew @ The Diamond (43 Franklin St) 3-5pm, $25
Greenpointers covered last year’s Brew n’ Chew, a home brewing and food pairing competition. It was delicious and a good time. This year’s competitive food items will include home made pretzels with home made mustard, sausage and pickled pepper pizza, onion tart, duck pistols and a brown ale/sesame seed cracker with hazelnut smoked blue cheese and dark cherry compote. And lots of home made beer to boot! All proceeds will be donated to The New York Charter School.
Nature’s most versatile vegetable is the guest of honor at this local celebration of food, music and moonshine. The Brooklynauts, our friends who judged the espresso tour with us, will be there, along with twelve of the city’s most innovative chef cooking off freshly prepared dishes of NY State Corn, along with games, live music from the Sundelles and a raffle. Proceeds from the event will go toward launching a new competitive cooking league and the Food Bank of New York City. The Brooklyn Star will also be preparing chicken n’ waffle cones!
