Ted Allen, author of In My Kitchen, talks with Gabrielle Langholtz of Edible Brooklyn
Followed by cocktail tasting at Greene Grape Spirits (8:30 PM)
As the host of Food Network’s hit show Chopped, Ted Allen presides over a pressure-filled kitchen, with chefs scrambling to cook with mystery ingredients. But at home (right here in Fort Greene!), Ted is the one chopping the vegetables and working the stove, embracing unusual ingredients and new techniques. Ted’s new cookbook, In My Kitchen: 100 Recipes and Discoveries for Passionate Cooks, shares the recipes he loves for people who want to roll up their sleeves, crank up the stereo, and get their hands dirty in the kitchen. Ted will discuss his food passions with Gabrielle Langholtz, food writer and editor of the James Beard Award-winning magazines Edible Manhattan and Edible Brooklyn, in which she recently published a profile of Ted. The discussion will be followed at 8:30 by a tasting of Ted’s delicious recipe for Campari acai punch at Greene Grape Spirits.
