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, Philadelphia. Slow Supper is also a benefit dinner party, held in a unique location. And what location could be more unique than Philadelphia's Magic Gardens. Join Brooklyn Brewery for this multi-course, multi-media, beer fueled culinary adventure in the history of the future!
This Slow Supper is inspired from Andrew Gerson's years in Philadelphia and his own food truck experiences. We'll have a Street Food inspired menu from Chefs Michael Sultan & Carolyn Nguyen's popular truck, Street Food Philly. Also with a hand in the menu handsomechef about town Johnny Mac with some brews of his own.
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 mansion. It's a mix of sculpture and projection called "Kings County Cornucopia" and it must be seen to be believed. (See video below)
All proceeds from this event will go directly to Slow Food Pittsburgh fighting the good fight for fair, sustainable food.
