Head to Humboldt & Jackson on August 7 at 6:30 PM for the second installment of our Dinner Party series. Dinner Party No. 2 will feature Brooklyn Brewery Chef Andrew Gerson teaming up with the Brooklyn Grange co-founder Ben Flanner. Over the past four years the team at Brooklyn Grange have become the world leaders in rooftop farming, tending to over 2 ½ acres of intensive green roofs in New York City. Their produce is sold in restaurants, groceries, farmers’ markets and CSA’s, helping demonstrate how useful localized urban farming can be to the community as well as the environment.
Chef Gerson has been itching to work with Ben and his gang of "funky urban farmers" since he first set foot on their rooftops. He is particularly taken with their rogue ground cherries, which transform our Philly-born chef into a regular poet if you ask about them. Each course will demonstrate the freshest ingredients from the sunniest corners of the Brooklyn Grange, all harvested by their hardworking team to capture the ingredients at their height.. Each course will be paired with some of the rarest and most interesting Brooklyn Brewery beers in our cellars for a thrilling culinary experience.
