OFFSITE EVENT: Berg’n
April Bloomfield, author of A Girl and Her Greens
In conversation with Brooklyn Flea founder Eric Demby
Part of the Book Cooks series
Tickets: $40 (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. From restaurateur April Bloomfield comes the highly anticipated follow-up to A Girl and Her Pig: the new cookbook A Girl and Her Greens! Bloomfield worked with some of the industry’s most revolutionary chefs before opening her own restaurant, The Spotted Pig, and her new book is in part inspired by her time with Ruth Rogers and Rose Gray at London’s celebrated River Café, and at San Francisco mainstay Chez Panisse under chef Alice Waters. Known to many for being a leader in the nose-to-tail movement, Bloomfield is also passionate about vegetables, though A Girl and Her Greens is not vegetarian. Written in Bloomfield’s charming voice and illustrated with dozens of gorgeous photographs and watercolor designs by Sun Young Park, the new book will be a treat for Bloomfield’s many fans. For this exclusive pre-publication event, Bloomfield talks with Eric Demby and offers a greens-based appetizer for attendees, followed by a book signing.
