From Community Markets, there’s a cooking demonstration today (Sunday, August 16) from Noon to 2pm by Carrie Luckner-Zimmerman, the market manager of Community Markets. Carrie is a chef and instructor at Sur La Table in Manhasset, NY. Per an email from Community Markets:
“Carrie, who is a graduate from at La Courdon Bleu in Paris, says her experience living in the 15th Arrondissement forever changed the way she would think about food. “There was always fresh, local produce- there were farmers markets everywhere,” she remembers. “That’s why I wanted to work at Community Markets.” Carrie will be using local goat cheese from Coach Hill Farm, a vendor at Community Market’s Park Slope Farmers Market, Bread from Orwasher’s Bakery, a DUMBO Farmers Market vendor and beets from Glebocki and Phillip’s Farms, also at the DUMBO Farmers Market. “For this recipe I will show people how to make use of the whole beet, even its’ bitter greens,” she says.”
The DUMBO Farmers Market is held every Sunday from 11am-5pm until November 22nd at the entrance to Brooklyn Bridge Park on Main Street.
