Join us at Chelsea Market's Makers' Studio for an evening of mushroom education, food and music with multidisciplinary citizen scientist and founder of MycoSymbiotics, William Padilla-Brown, and renowned filmmaker and ethnobotanist, Anthony Basil Rodriguez.
Fungi and their mushrooms are the best teachers in showing us how we can turn waste into abundance. From foraging to composting, let's learn how we can redefine our urban food-chain.
After the talk, William, who is also a rapper, will treat audience members to a performance of his original music while guests can enjoy a tasting of mushroom empanadas made by our friends at Eat Offbeat with MycoSymbiotics Cordy Hot Sauce.
Join us virtually for a conversation with Pascal Baudar and Soirée-Leone, a teacher and writer focused on food preservation. They'll discuss how to source ingredients from your own environments to make vinegar, as well as how to use your homemade vinegars to make a wide range of delicious foods such quick pickles, soups, sauces, salad dressings, beverages, desserts, jams, and other preserves.
Additionally, Pascal will demonstrate how to make your own "wildcrafted" vinegar at home using any alcoholic beverage of your choice— wild or commercial.
VINO TALK: Our Favorite Italian Wines from Native Grapes
Monday, December 5
In person at The Garden at Ace Hotel Brooklyn
Renowned sommelier and restauranteur Joe Campanale's latest book, Vino: The Essential Guide to Real Italian Wine written with Joshua David Stein, is the Italian wine bible for a new generation and a comprehensive guide that is as transportive as it is deeply educational.
Vino dives into the dynamic landscape of Italian wine today, where a new generation of winemakers is eschewing popular international styles, championing long- forgotten indigenous grapes, and adopting sustainable approaches best suited for their local climates.
Campanale and Stein will discuss their new book and lead tastings throughout as they reveal their favorite Italian wines from native grapes.
Tickets are limited and include a tasting of 3 types of natural wines and a signed copy of Vino: The Essential Guide to Real Italian Wine.
