In the next two weeks, NYC peeps and Upstaters will have not 1 or 2 or 3 but FOUR opportunities to nosh on incredible edibles made by my very own hands and donated to good causes by my very own heart. Two are free, one is cheap, and one is a bit on the pricey side.
1) This Friday, Feministing is throwing a giant party for their five year anniversary and I’m not sure it’s possible to have a party for a feminist website without salty chocolatey vulvas, right? Tickets are on a sliding scale and no one will be turned away! I would so love to go to this, as my ultimate hero Kathleen Hanna will be there, but instead I’ll be working. I’ve got to get some Saturday work done on Friday, because:
2) This Saturday, I’ll be at the Phillies Bridge Spring Farm Festival in Gardiner, NY, talking about improvising amazing salad dressings from scratch with whatever nice local veggies and herbs are in your CSA share. I’ll be making almond-based creamy dressings, flavor-forward vinaigrettes, and literally oodles more dressings using the tasty Phillies Bridge herbs, veggies and lettuces. Come say hello, it’s free! I’ll even be wearing a chef’s jacket—fancy fancy. Also, I will be handing out a mini-manifesto on improvising salad dressings that you can only get by coming to the event! I’ve been working on the handout for the past few hours, and it’s pretty damn amazing. I love stuff like this!
3) Then next week, be sure to hit up the Mercy for Animals launch party at Moo Shoes! June 18 and totally free.
4) The next day, bring $100 and hop on over to the fundraiser for “Standardized Testing” (a film about the horror that is biomedical testing) at Peter Max’s studio! June 19.
