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.

Get Your Tickets to Sumo Stew Before It’s Fudadome (11/15)

For the past few years, an under-the-radar celebration of all things sumo has been regularly taking place at Brooklyn Brewery. Hosted by photographer Michael Harlan Turkell and owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen Harry Rosenblum, the evening centers around chankonabe, the stew sumo wrestlers consume while training and a live stream of grand tournaments. But the stew isn’t all there is to eat, there’s bento boxes, Japanese whisky, shochu, sake, tea, and Brooklyn Brewery’s own beers on tap for every guest. And the 17th round of Sumo Stew is next Wednesday, the 15th. Continue reading

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

Checking Out the New Fish Counter at The Brooklyn Kitchen

When The Meat Hook left the back of The Brooklyn Kitchen earlier this year, the owners, Harry Rosenblum and Taylor Erkkinen, decided on a little redesign to fill up the vacated space. They moved a few shelves around, installed a new butcher counter and along with it, a custom-made fish counter. As long-term area residents—The Brooklyn Kitchen itself developed out of a lack of kitchen supply stores in Greenpoint/Williamsburg—they remember the days of illicit sidewalk fishmongers and know that, besides Greenpoint Fish & Lobster, there are now no places to get local, sustainable fish while also supporting a local business. Now, The Brooklyn Kitchen thoroughly succeeds in its goal of being a one-stop-shop for all your kitchen needs. Continue reading

Enid’s Apple Pie Contest Winner – Our Own Libby V!

We are so proud that the talented and amazing Greenpointers contributor responsible for the hilarious and adorable illustrations in her Friday column “Recipes Gone Wild” – is the champion of Enid’s Apple Pie Contest that happened this past Sunday!!! We asked her how it feels to win the most competitive Apple Pie contest in the universe:

GP: So, how many pies were you up against?
Libby: Somewhere around 28-30.

GP: Did you think you had a chance at winning?
Libby: I didn’t think I’d win because my pie looked like a lumpy, primitive life form in a world of civilized, beautiful pies. But I did have one special ingredient in my arsenal, which I was hoping would give me an edge. Continue reading
