I think if you’re read this blog or seen my photo blog http://ultrateg.com, you’ll know how much I love Brooklyn. So when I found out there was going to be a Brooklyn cookbook I was like hellz yeah then I found out that Michael Harlan Turkell shot all of the photos I was like double hellz yeah! If you don’t know who Michael Harlan Turkell is, he’s the photo editor and photographer for Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn.
This past Saturday I attended the New Brooklyn Cookbook event over at The Brooklyn Kitchen. The cookbook was put together by Brendan and Melissa Vaughan. At the event they lead a panel of chefs from some of the restaurants that were featured in the cookbook. Chef Tom Kearney of The Farm on Adderley, Chef Sean Rembold of Marlow & Sons, Frank Castronovo and Frank Falcinelli of Frankies Spuntino and Prime Meats and Kheedim Oh of Mama’s O Kimchee were all there.
All of the chefs brought a little something to eat for the event, here’s what we all ate.
