Two of our members who regularly host the Tasteful Supper Club organized a special fundraiser for the Greenpoint Soup Kitchen back in September, hosting a delicious and fun evening and raising some $$ for neighborhood food security!
Everyone left with full bellies, new friends and a drunken glow (courtesy of fabulous wine donated by Vine Wine).
The 5 course menu was:
Beet Pesto & Spicy Eggplant Dip with Pita Chips
Pimientos de Padron blistered in olive oil & topped with sea salt
Peach Honey Ricotta Bruschetta
Salad of thinly sliced radishes & fresh picked raspberries on a bed of romaine lettuce with a light vinaigrette
Roasted Acorn Squash & Cannellini Beans wrapped in a corn tortilla and topped with tomatillo-jalepeno sauce
Wilted Spinach with lemon zest
Apple Crisp topped with Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory Vanilla Ice Cream
The dinner ended up being held on the night of that fateful Brooklyn tornado (everyone arrived safely!). By the end of the night we had concocted a new cocktail and we all toasted to the tornado.
