We won! Anarchy is happily attending Just Food’s annual fundraiser party, Let Us Eat Local, after entering Not Eating Out in New York's contest, in which food bloggers posted unique recipes featuring food from their region or community. The bloggers were asked to describe where the main ingredients were purchased and why they chose those particular purveyors or farms. Our fellow foodie bloggers posted some delicious recipes for the competition and we felt honored to be in their company. Our mouths were watering reading about Dave's homemade eggplant and black pepper fettuccinne with heirloom tomato and roasted garlic sauce, Jessica's beet handkerchiefs with garlic scapes, Emily's fresh corn polenta with fried egg, garlicky greens and tomato sauce, and Brian's Cabbage and Kielbasa Stew. Wow, I can't wait to try these using my CSA and farmer's market bounty!
The event, which takes place tonight at Prince George Ballroom, will feature small plates from many of the city’s most renowned restaurants, like Blue Hill, Gramercy Tavern and Jean-Georges. Yum!
We won with our Pink Pearl Apple Preserves with Calvados and Cardamom recipe. Yes, the jam is pink, the apples come from Montgomery Place Farms in upstate New York, and I picked the cardamom in Kerala, Southeast India. It's the bomb and will be featured on our fall menu.
If you want a taste, within the month we will have some in a jar for the new Greenpoint Food Market, where we will be most Saturdays. Come say hi!
