Read and Eat

Foodie fanboys, get excited for the Food Book Fair


This one goes out to all the hardcore foodies out there.

You know who you are, you McClure's pickle-loving, at-home-kimchi-making, Brooklyn-Kitchen-haunting gastro-freaks who own more culinary equipment than your Bushwick railroad apartment could possibly contain.

So you probably know we're talking about the Food Book Fair, devoted to your very special kith and kin, going down next weekend at — where else? — the Wythe Hotel and nearby Brooklyn hotspots.

The multi-day fest of all things written and eaten starts with an opening-night party at Brooklyn Winery benefiting the still-hurting Rockaways, featuring culinary luminaries like Nancy Singleton Hachisu (who wrote Japanese Farm Food) and gallons of vino.

These three days are chock-full of events, including a Williamsburg coffee crawl and a foodie zine fest, as well as a multi-course dinner/book launch party for Brandon Baltzley's Nine Lives at Egg.

On Sunday, Jessica Applestone of Fleisher’s tackles all of your meat-related questions — we're sure you have many — and Parish Hall hosts a four-course dinner inspired by Jean Craighead George’s My Side of the Mountain, with beer from Brooklyn Brewery.

Forks are supplied, but you might want to bring your own book bag.
