See Master Butcher Rudi Weid break down the carcass of a locally, humanely, and sustainably raised lamb into primals, sub-primals, and, ultimately, into roasts, chops, and miscellaneous cuts (stew meat, organ meat ). And feast on lamb prepared for you by Chef Andres Valbuena and Sous Chef Rachael Mamane.
As Master Butcher Rudi wields his knives from head to hind quarter, he will discuss each section, muscle, and cut. And, as he works on one lamb, you will enjoy another, roasted, seared, and grilled by Chef Andres, accompanied by New York State wines. When Rudi is done, you will be able to bid on cuts to take home. (Cash and checks will be accepted.)
This special event will benefit the Slow Food NYC Urban Harvest Programs of good food education for NYC kids.
Institute of Culinary Education, 50 W. 23rd St (between 5th & 6th Ave.), Manhattan

You might have heard of Gasland when it was nominated for an Academy award. It explores the issues surrounding hydraulic fracturing (or “fracking”), which is threatening to poison the groundwater in upstate New York. You know, where we NYCers get our water from?
Following the film, a discussion will be led by a speaker from United for Action.

I’ve mentioned Liddabit Sweets many, many, many times. Well, if you want, you can go meet them in person. Though, come to think of it, you can do that at any Amsterdam or Brooklyn Flea. What makes this different is that it’s at a winery. Wine and chocolate? Yes please!
