If there’s a week this year to get your whiskey tasting on it would be this week. Wine By The Case is hosting a myriad of tastes composed of the best of American Whiskey, Bourbons & Scotches in their Whiskey Week. Lagavulin, Highland Park, Cody Road, Boondocks++ This event is FREE all they ask is that you purchase a commemorative glass. And why would you not want a commemorative glass? Wednesday, March 16 at 6:00 PM – Tuesday, March 22 at 10:00 PM @ Wine By The Case in Brooklyn.
More Class Places
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.
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.
Turkey has been high on our travel list for the last 5 years and we have yet to step off a plane in Atatürk Airport. Since we live in NYC there’s more than one way to achieve our goal of tasting mouth watering kebaps and off the chain börek. If you’re in NYC or close, you can play the same game we are. The Turkish Culture Center is offering a cooking class that promises to give you a solid dose of culture and food all wrapped up in a warm pide ekmeği (flat bread). We’re not promising flat bread but we are promising you’ll leave full of food and new friends. June 1 from 6:30 to 9:00 PM in NYC.
You made that awesome veggie dish last weekend. Then there was the grilled onions and veal. Don’t forget about those apple sauce cupcakes you baked for your vegan friends 30th birthday party. The Brooklyn Brainery is bringing illustrator Malou Zuidema in to show us all how to make a more permanent version of our favorite recipes. In their 2-hour Food Illustration Workshop you’ll learn technics to make your yummies on a page with a myriad of mediums. Malou believes that playfulness is what creating art is all about. The event is more “for fun” than for “technique” but you will learn a ton in the process. The hope is simply that you leave with something that you didn’t know you could create before. Wednesday, August 10th from 5:30-7:30pm in Brooklyn.
