Does “Eat Spain Up,” the name of NYC’s upcoming Spanish food and culture festival, sound like a challenge to anyone else? If it is, I’m down — definitely down. And consuming ungodly amounts of Spanish cuisine surely requires a certain level of highly specialized skill, right? So get ready, Eat Spain Up, get ready, because, thanks to years of experience with gluttony, I plan to dominate in the Spanish wine-drinking department. To triumph at the olive oil tasting. To be the mightiest of all (of all!) in the (over) consumption of ham and cheese. Oh, and I guess I could stop by one of the cooking classes, check out one of the screenings or roundtables with world-renowned Iberian chefs, and maybe try to stop being so competitive about the whole thing. Who’s with me?! October 24 – 28 in NYC.

Next Saturday replicate your favorite Dough Donut out of felt. OK, you can make other sweets besides Dough Donuts I’ve just been off the sugar for 2 months now and damn it’s calling me back. Brooklyn Craft Company just moved from the Pencil Factory to their very own storefront, also on Greenpoint Avenue. Besides crafting a beautiful little shop they launched a whole slew of new classes. The Needle Felted Desserts class is only one of many BUT certainly the one that got our attention. Our resident critic, @missustasty signed up tout suite. You should too. Saturday, September 17 from 3pm-6pm in Brooklyn.
Michael Cirino, culinary innovator and experience genius, will spend 2 hours educating us about cannabis cooking techniques and its effects on the human brain. IMPORTANT NOTE: You will not be served, offered or shared any marijuana in this class, and the organizers do not encourage the act of cooking or prepping under the influence. Although, Cirino will demonstrate the process using legal herbs. By close of class you’ll be armed with surprising new thinking around this unnecessarily infamous plant. Just be careful where you use your new knowledge. We don’t recommend a test at Thanksgiving dinner. Wednesday, April 20 at 6:30 PM @ The Brooklyn Kitchen.
We’re more likely talking ’67 Camaro than ’47 Cheval Blanc but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to sip on some great vino. FIAF Wine Tasting’s The Vintage Effect Class gives you that opportunity with one of this years more interesting sessions. Learn enough to navigate that monster list at Del Posto BUT be careful it doesn’t break your ApplePay next time you catch yourself with a full cart on Wine Library.com. Monday, March 14 @ 7pm in NYC.
We’ve loved Ample Hills since day one. Which for us was when they judged Matt Timms Ice Cream Takedown and conceded to serving the peoples choice “Caprese Freeze” in their Vanderbilt shop. Since then, the’ve come a long way but have stayed true to their quirky, passionate roots. Their Ice Cream Social is a perfect case in point. Their ice cream making bike is fun, funny, exercise and reward all mixed up in one cream creating basket. Literally. That’s followed by what they call a waffle sundae bar. Yes please to whatever that is. Tuesday, July 12th from 7-9pm.
