Date(s) - Sunday, June 23
Brooklyn Brewery will have a full week of events listed here: http://brooklynbrewerymash.com/twin-cities
At its core, Slow Supper is good old fashioned dinner party. But it’s much more than that. It’s also a collaboration between the culinary cultures of Brooklyn and, in this case, the Twin Cities. Slow Supper is also a benefit dinner party, held in a unique location. Previous suppers have been held on a farm in Austin, in an abandondend building in downtown New Orleans and in a repurposed meatpacking plant in Nashville. In Baltimore, we ate in an arboretum.
Join Brooklyn Brewery for this multi-course, multi-media, beer fueled culinary adventure in the gallery space of the Soap Factory. Slow Supper will be delicious, stylish and surprising. What’s more is that all proceeds will go to benefit Minnesota’s own Land Stewardship Project*.
Your cooking team: From Minneapolis we have the much priased chef, Jamie Malone of Sea Change. Food & Wine as well as the James Beard folks have been talking up Ms Malone’s fresh seafood and also her attention to sourcing her ingredients in a sustainable way.
And from Brooklyn comes graduate of the University of Gastronomic Sciences and active member of Slow Food, Brooklyn House Chef Andrew Gerson. His approach to cooking is based on supporting local food systems and celebrating good food and real beer. Chef Andrew is on a food crawl like no other, sharing and learning with chefs around the country with The Mash. Every Slow Supper is the delicious culmination of what he’s absorbed from earlier stops on the tour.
Helping color in The Mash, NBNY, the organizers of Brooklyn’s Bring to Light festival, will map their immersive installations of light and projection art to the architecture of the Soap Factory. It’s a mix of sculpture and projection called “Kings County Cornucopia” and it must be seen to be believed.
Behind the scenes are our new pals for life, Dinner On The Farm. (Thanks for the help, guys!)
