FERN Talks & Eats Brooklyn
October 1 @ 5:30 pm
Listing as per the Food & Environment Reporting Network, organizer of FERN Talks & Eats Brooklyn:
FERN Talks & Eats is coming to Brooklyn’s Green Building on October 1. We’re hosting author and former Editor-in-Chief of Gourmet Ruth Reichl and Dirt Candy chef Amanda Cohen for a conversation on #MeToo in the restaurant business. The conversation will be anchored by Cohen’s essay in Esquire about the media’s wholesale neglect of female chefs until the current scandals. “Women may not have value as chefs, but as victims we’re finally interesting!” she writes. Reichl will discuss the issue from her decades-long vantage point on the industry, beginning with her earliest days as a food critic in Berkeley to her perch at Gourmet. It is nothing if not timely. We feel it’s a vital conversation and we’re pleased to be able to bring it to you.
Join us beforehand for a reception featuring complimentary eats, beer, wine and hard cider including snacks by a team of chefs from a quartet of Danny Meyer’s Union Square Hospitality Group restaurants.
• Suzanne Cupps of Untitled (at the Whitney Museum)
• Lena Ciardullo of Marta
• Emily Brekke of North End Grill
• Amanda Wilson of Union Square Cafe
There will be items featured by local artisanal food companies like Saxelby Cheesemongers and Hot Bread Kitchen. Drinks by The Brooklyn Brewery and Fishkill Farms’ Treasury Cider with more to come. Wines for the dinner supplied by Weygandt Wines.
This panel is hosted by the Food & Environment Reporting Network.
