Holiday

Tastings, Maker Demos, & More at Our Holiday Market

November 25, 2016

In case you didn't hear us shouting it from the rooftops, our Holiday Market is popping back up for the season. From Friday, December 2nd to Sunday, December 4th, Food52 HQ is transforming into a winter wonderland where you can gift shop the day away. We'll be open daily from 12 to 8PM.

RSVP on our Eventbrite page to join in on all the festivities. We can't wait to see you!

Aside from all the smart tools and shining treasures on display (that, pssst, you can order at the Market with free shipping), we also invited some of our makers to host tastings and demos—and to get to know our community—that's you!—a little better.

Here's what we have planned:

Friday, December 2nd

12 to 8 PM
RISE Nitro Cold-Brew Coffee Bar
RISE Coffee will be handing out their locally-made, organic, and non-GMO Nitro Cold-Brew to keep you turbo-charged for perusing the market. Nitrogen-infused, or "Nitro", coffee has an extra boost of caffeine with a lower acidity, for a smooth, creamy taste.

12 to 2 PM
Zwilling Knife Skills Class with our Test Kitchen Chef, Josh Cohen
Learn some essential knife skills that'll help with all of that holiday cooking! Our Test Kitchen Chef Josh Cohen will be demonstrating his tips and techniques using Zwilling Pro and Miyabi Knives. Plus, we will be giving away three Rocking Santoku knives!

3 to 5 PM
Mike's Hot Honey Tasting
Mike, yes, "the" Mike, will be sharing samples of his hot honey (one of our all-time favorite condiments). More specifically: He'll be drizzling it all over Detroit-style pizza, so come and get it while it's hot!

6 to 8 PM
Xocolatti Chocolate Tasting
Xocolatti's handcrafted chocolate is made with unique spices and flavors: think paprika, saffron, and rose petals. Founder Shaineal Shah will be in the house manning an artisanal tasting bar, where you'll see just how the raw ingredients and the chocolate come together to create something amazing.

6 to 8 PM
Gin Lane 1751 Cocktails
Cap off a day of busy holiday shopping with a refreshing cocktail from Gin Lane 1751. Their handcrafted Victorian style gins are blended by an 8th generation London distiller!

Saturday, December 3rd

12 to 8 PM
RISE Nitro Cold-Brew Coffee Bar
RISE Coffee will be handing out their locally-made, organic, and non-GMO Nitro Cold-Brew to keep you turbo-charged for perusing the market. Nitrogen-infused, or "Nitro", coffee, has an extra boost of caffeine with a lower acidity, for a smooth, creamy taste.

12 to 2 PM
Bushwick Kitchen Tasting
Try Bushwick Kitchen's spins on syrups and honeys (like Cinnamon Maple Syrup, begging for a winter pancake morning). Locally made right here in New York!

3 to 5 PM
My Sweet Chocolate Tasting
Ever tried a brigadeiro? Well, now's your chance! It's a traditional sweet from Brazil made with condensed milk, cocoa, and butter. Sample all of My Sweet's handmade varieties and satisfy that sweet tooth.

3 to 5 PM
Brooklyn Brew Shop Beer Brewing Demo
You can brew your own beer at home—and Brooklyn Brew Shop will show you how! Their experts will walk you through using one of their easy kits, and you'll be sipping a custom ale in no time. Did we mention there will be ice cold samples to try?

Sunday, December 4th

12 to 2 PM
Sohha Yogurt Tasting
Savory yogurt is the new sweet yogurt—and Sohha is leading the charge. Sample their spiced-up oils and see why Za'atar, Everything Bagel, and Sumac trumps fruit or honey any day. (Hint: also a great stocking stuffer!)

3 to 5 PM
A New Way to Dinner Book Signing with Amanda Hesser & Merrill Stubbs
Come by and meet Amanda Hesser and Merrill Stubbs, our founders—they will be signing their newest cookbook, A New Way to Dinner (available for purchase at the Market!). It's an indispensable manual for cooking ahead for the week, so you're never floundering for a weeknight meal again!

3 to 5 PM
Dona Chai Tasting
Dona Chai’s Chai Concentrate uses whole spices that are ground fresh for the best flavor—come taste for yourself! Their slow brewed elixir is steeped in small batches—try it mixed with milk or go spiked with bourbon.

6 to 8 PM
Owl's Brew Cocktails
Owl's Brew is one of our favorite way to fancy up run-of-the-mill cocktails for the holidays. Their team will be here serving festive drinks made with some of their best-loved mixes—so come and get inspired for your own holiday entertaining!

RSVP for all the fun on the Eventbrite page—we hope to see you there!

Is there a way to RSVP without using Eventbrite? I don't want my email used for marketing spam.

Hi Barrie, Feel free to stop without RSVPing through Eventbrite! Most of the tastings and events can accommodate extra people, and you can always peruse the market. Hope to see you tomorrow!
