Recently at the McGolrick Park Farmers Market in Greenpoint, we chatted with the ONE and ONLY Barry Schwartz of Barry’s Tempeh. Not only is he Brooklyn’s resident tempeh-whisperer, but he’s also the chef lined up for the Vegetarian Feast Fundraiser this coming Sunday, July 26th. Tickets are $20; includes appetizer, entrée, dessert, and drink. Proceeds go to the Lutheran Church of the Messiah.
We mention this not as a guarantee of what he’ll serve for the Vegetarian Feast, but rather to show the creative spark behind his cooking. His mere mention of “grilled peaches with cardamon” got us hungry and curious to attend. We hope you feel the same. Here are the event details:
Barry will create a full meal – including appetizer, entree, desert, and drink – sourced from the McGolrick Park Farmers Market. Other members of the newly-formed Park Co-Op will donate items for the dinner, too. (If you’re dreaming that means Van Leeuwen Ice Cream for dessert, your wish shall be granted!) We will have vegan-friendly options for every course, too.
Tickets are $20/person and proceeds go to the Lutheran Church of the Messiah.
You can purchase tickets directly from the manager, Niki, at the market this Sunday, July 26th. You may also contact Dagmar Kostkova of Down to Earth Markets for tickets at dagmar@downtoearthmarkets or via phone: 914-923-4837. And let us know you’re coming through this Facebook invite – see you there!
