There’s no place like Brooklyn for the holidays. I’m sticking around this year, except for a Christmas trip over to Jersey. And if you’re also kicking it in NYC, then there’s plenty of fun to be had. Specifically, this fantastic day of food and photography that my friends at Photojojo, the Whisk & Ladle Supper Club and I are collaborating on.
This is the third Photojojo Safari to take place in New York City. I had the good fortune of attending the first one, where 100 or so amateur photographers and I followed Jake Dobkin around DUMBO checking out the street art and snapping photos of them to share at an afterparty. I met Steph Goralnick there, who is heading the NYC chapter of these events. This is what we came up with, along with Mark from Whisk & Ladle.
The party will include food demonstrations from an assortment of special guests. At the request of so many, I’m offering a pie crust lattice weaving/cut-out decorating demonstration. There will be a slideshow of food photography throughout the years, tips on lighting and other technicalities, and lots of food, wine and cocktails. Finally, there will be a “Most Photogenic” food contest, and anyone who brings in their most spectacular homemade work of edible art can come to the event free! The winner will receive a modest prize. Email me (cathy[at]noteatingoutinny.com) if you’re interested in entering — and please be willing to serve your creation (think at least 10 servings, please).
Space is limited, so please sign up at Photojojo to RSVP soon! Lights! Camera! Let’s eat!
