Libby VanderPloeg’s ‘Recipes Gone Wild’ at last year’s Foodieodicals event
Foodie book lover? Bookish food lover? If this sounds like you then take note! The fourth annual Food Book Fair is taking place at Wythe Hotel this weekend and it’s probably right up your alley. The fabulous three day event is packed with literary events, panel discussions, delicious meals, and flavorful gatherings that the discerning foodie will not want to miss.
The weekend also plays host to the magnificent Foodieodicalsfestival, which shines a spotlight on some of the best independent food magazines from around the globe. The Saturday afternoon fair also puts a strong emphasis on local publications and includes stalls from Bakeri Zine, Edible Brooklyn, Diner Journal and Put a Egg on It. Tickets are only $5 and the amount of edible freebies we got at last year’s event more than covered the entrance price.

Some of the answers were not too shocking, but most people’s wildest food stories were actually pretty incredible! I did a little photo documentation of the answers, which you can see on our facebook page, and I’ve kept anonymous the identities of those who participated (by way of some hand-painted animal masks, naturally). Special thanks to Rose D for helping me with the photography!
It’s almost time to welcome the return of the popular Food Book Fair to Brooklyn. Now in its third year, the event will run at the Wythe Hotel between 25th-27th April and will bring together food enthusiasts, chefs, artists and writers for a long weekend of foodie fun. Continue reading →
