On Sunday, I ate the best egg. Ever.
Though it was pouring rain, my friend Julia and I biked over to Brooklyn’s Farm City Fair to experience some music, art, and (most importantly) food of Brooklyn. The event was held in the Invisible Dog Art Center, an awesome art space in a converted factory building. (They hold all sorts of art classes there, and I think I might have to go back and try a few out!)
Flying wheatgrass people that change as they grow? Yes. Inside, there were tons of food and craft vendors, including an artist who was making french bread and goat cheese ice cream as a geographical-culinary “art project” and a guy who was selling a “garden in a bag,” which was essentially a sprouting kit.
Outside, the street was filled with even more amazing food and a pretty stellar marching band called the Asphalt Orchestra. Thankfully, the rain cleared up for most of the day, and the atmosphere was festive in a particularly autumnal way.
Almost every vendor was giving out samples, and nearly everything I tasted was fantastic. I have to say, though, that my favorite bite to eat came from Wylie Dufresne of wd~50 (and Top Chef) fame. He was serving up a slow-poached egg in a green tomato consume with smashed tomatoes, pickled carrots, and basil.
Simple, yet amazing. Probably the best egg I’ve ever had.
Speaking of eggs, I have plans to make mayonnaise later today… with a twist. If it works out, I’ll be posting pictures and recipe in a bit!
