Eat Drink Local Week

For those of you not aware, tomorrow starts Eat Drink Local Week, sponsored by the Edible Magazines. Now, I understand, we all can’t be perfect little locavores, like me, but Eat Drink Local week is the perfect time to try. The week long event raises awareness for and celebrates local food grown in our region, restaurants that serve it and partners that support it. You don’t really even have to cook if you don’t want to! There are over 100 restaurants throughout Manhattan, Brooklyn and the East End celebrating Eat Drink Local week with prix fixed meals, featuring local ingredients. You cam try a new place each and every week! Some of my favorites include al di la and iCi in Brooklyn, Telepan and Craft in Manhattan and The North Fork Table & Inn (which I have yet to get to but have heard amazing things!).

If you’re like me, and also want to take on the challenge of cooking to live local, Edible has put together a list of eight ingredients they encourage partners and home cooks alike to include:

  • Spinach
  • Eggs
  • Goat (milk, cheese, yogurt, meat, etc)
  • Radishes
  • Rose Wine
  • Porgy
  • Fava Beans
  • Hops

Most or all ingredients should be available at your local Greenmarket. Between my husband and I can guarantee we’re covered with Rose and Hops, but I hope to incorporate some of the other listed ingredients into my cooking too. Maybe even find a new staple recipe! And of course, there’s always time to dine out at least one night.

Happy Eat Drink Local Week!
