The Brooklyn Kitchen to Host Closing Party for Frost Street Location

After an eventful 10-year-run at 100 Frost St., the good folks at the Brooklyn Kitchen are closing their Williamsburg location (don’t worry classes are still available at Industry City), but not before throwing a big party.

After 10 never boring years at the big old leaky warehouse under the BQE, Harry and Taylor are clearing their cabinets of curiosities and inviting their friends over to eat, drink, and imagine merriment in the face of society’s inevitable collapse. Expect steampunk maximalism, a fair amount of rust, out of print cookbooks, Gourmet magazines from your birth year. Records stored in unarchival conditions. Relics and mementos.

Art, music, food, drink. An epic loft sale / rent party the likes of which 11211 hasn’t seen since 11249.

The Brooklyn Kitchen’s Closing, But There’s A SALE!!!

Over a decade ago, Williamsburg residents Harry Rosenblum and Taylor Erkkinen didn’t have a good place to pick up kitchen supplies when in a pinch, so they created one. The Brooklyn Kitchen first opened on Lorimer Street in late 2006, moving to a former textile warehouse at 100 Frost Street in 2009. They added The Meat Hook in the back (the butcher shop moved last year to its new digs), offered fresh produce, and became a full specialty grocery offering classes, hosting book events, and presiding over many cooking competitions. And last week, it was announced that the dream was over. Continue reading

It’s Time To Get Healthy: Food For Life Cooking Class Begins Thursday (DEAL!)

Did you know that reviews by the American Institute for Cancer Research show that as much as 40% of cancer risk may be related to diet?

The contemporary Brooklynite’s diet (I’m looking at you!) which consists of going out and enjoying overly indulgent bacon infused everything (even cocktails) can leave us all feeling sluggish, unwell and not ourselves. Sound familiar? Not to mention it may put us at risk for disease down the line.

For the price it costs to go out to a fancy (heavy) and expensive dinner once, why not take a course (which includes 4 informative & hands-on classes) and learn to cook for your health!

Earth and Wellness Café (397 Graham Ave) is offering a Food for Life Cooking Course, which includes 4 classes on the following Thursdays (3/20, 3/27, 4/3, 4/10)

 from 7–9pm and costs on $135.

Plus they are offering a DEAL! 10% OFF discount to Greenpointers readers!
