Culinary Breeding Network: Variety Showcase
September 24 - September 25
On Monday, September 24th, the Culinary Breeding Network is partnering with GrowNYC to host a special New York edition of its VARIETY SHOWCASE at Project Farmhouse. This event is an interactive mixer designed to build community between plant breeders, organic farmers and eaters where attendees have the unique experience to taste new and in-development vegetable, fruit & grain cultivars with the breeders that created them, share opinions, talk about needs & preferences and learn about the importance of organic plant breeding.
The event includes a series of tables featuring plant breeders with examples of their breeding work. The tables provide attendees with a tangible example of the bio-diversity being created with organic production and flavor in mind. Each breeder is paired with a chef that creates a dish that highlights the breeding project and samples are tasted by attendees.
Tickets to the Variety Showcase are $100 will be held at two times – the daytime session from 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. and the evening session from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. . Please note there are different breeders and chefs at each time. There will also be interactive tables at a free, public outdoor space 2 blocks away at the Union Square Greenmarket from 11:00 am – 6:00 pm.
