It’s festival season here in Brooklyn: you foodies have Great Googamooga, you lit nerds have Lit Crawl, but what about if you like both literature and food? Get ready for the first-ever New York Food Book Fair, which is taking over the new Wythe Hotel in Greenpoint all weekend. The fest features panels, meals and a bunch of authors and authors talking about just about anything you could want to know about the intersection of food and culture, including food and porn, avant garde cooking, food-inspired changes in technology and more. The authors appearing include Harold McGee (On Food and Cooking, The Science and Lore of the Kitchen), Dr. Marion Nestle (Why Calories Count, Food Politics) and Carolyn Steel (Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives) and many more. Tickets for the panels are $15 each, but we’ve got a pair of full festival passes to give out to Brokelyn readers (a $430 value)! Details below.
To enter, just set up a Brokelyn profile if you don’t have one already (click on the word “register” near the top right hand corner of the site); then put a comment below telling us your favorite food book. It could be a cookbook, novel, Pollan-wanna-be, whatever. We’ll randomly select a winner by 5pm Thursday.
