What we're about

I see so many great food-related festivals and events going on in NYC throughout the year, but I believe I probably miss out on even more that I never hear about! So I thought it would be fun to put together a group to keep each other informed of events and hang out at them. For example, I just realized that I missed the Lobster Rumble a few weeks ago, but will be 100% attending the upcoming Bacon Bash and Cheesemonger Invitational! (as of 6/23/12)

Please feel free to schedule events, and/or send me your event ideas and I will try to organize them all. Please note the costs of each event, everyone is responsible for buying their own tickets.

Update (Fall 2012): I wont' be updating this group until the spring when more events come around and more people are up for coming out to them. In the meantime, I highly encourage you to follow Dave Cook's Eating In Translation Blog, Street Fairs category: http://www.eatingintranslation.com/street_fairs/

Past to Apron: Food Program

Needs a location

If you fancy a 'taste' of history - explore upcoming Past to Apron program June 25 & 26. The virtual program presents a set of talks on food and drink history as per the schedule or on demand. Think of it as the "Netflix of food history".
The program will present:

  • The history of herbalism that will include a selection of related historic kitchen items
  • The importance of buttermilk to Ireland's history - presented with the Dunfanaghy workhouse (based in Donegal)
  • The history of traditions and folklore of the harvest season and Halloween in Newfoundland and Labrador
  • The history of newspaper cooking schools
  • The history of food at Stratford Hall, the home of two signers of the Declaration of Independence
  • The history of alcohol, drawing on English and Irish roots in Newfoundland and Labrador
  • The tradition of roadside bread ovens in Gaspe, Quebec
  • PLUS a live afternoon tea session for Q&A and chat on food/drink history, a bonus talk from Fortnum and Mason (from the 2020 edition) with some additional talks expected to be added shortly

With the ease of viewing from your own surroundings on any smartphone, tablet or desktop or laptop, the program serves as a source of information and inspiration delivered to a general interest level.
