Description

SUMO STEW (#SUMOSTEW) is back in Brooklyn for its 20th round!


We'll have Candy Art and Sumi-e calligraphy for you to enjoy as well as a VERY SPECIAL Rakugo performance.


Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell (harlanturk.com) returned to New York City with aspirations of importing this ancient sport and teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen (thebrooklynkitchen.com), a wonderfully multi-faceted cooking store and center for culinary education. The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.
