Max & Eli Sussman, authors of Classic Recipes for Modern People
In conversation with Brooklyn Flea founder Eric Demby
Part of the Book Cooks series
Tickets: $30 (includes book and appetizer)

The Book Cooks series at Berg'n features top local chefs and food writers presenting their new food-related books at Berg’n, in conversation with Smorgasburg and Berg’n co-founder Eric Demby. Each ticketed event includes tasty samples prepared by the chefs as well as a copy of the featured book. Chef brothers Max and Eli Sussman are back with their fourth cookbook, Classic Recipes for Modern People, featuring over 75 recipes that reimagine classic dishes from their childhood and yours, with a little humor baked in along the way. Max and Eli, both nominated for the James Beard Award and selected for Zagat NYC’s 30 under 30, believe that recipes should be ever expanding and evolving, a philosophy they practice in both their professional and home kitchens. That a dish “no matter how classic and iconic… has the ability to morph into something new and fantastic.” Max and Eli talk with series host Eric Demby about their inspiration and their kitchen experiences at some of New York’s most iconic restaurants (The Cleveland, Roberta’s, The Breslin, and Mile End Deli), and offer guests a surprise appetizer taken straight from the pages of their new book.
