Cook-Offs and Indian-Caribbean dinner on the horizon

We’re cooking off like crazy over the next week or so, and bringing our local food with an Asian flair to two cook-offs for good food causes. The first, on July 18th, is the Great Hot Dog Cook-Off, a benefit for City Harvest. We’re debuting the Hapa Dog! Then the following Tuesday, July 21, we’re making something outta Mountain View Farm’s pork belly and local farm veggies for the first-ever Local Grill-Off to benefit Slow Food NYC. Get your tickets and come see what it’ll be, or if you’re interested, compete beside us in the cook-off yourself!

Isn’t it hot out? We’re excited to mesh the foods of two cultures who are very good at handling that: Indian (with other South Asian inspiration), and the Caribbean. Set in a yoga studio with a live music performance before and after dinner, here’s a glimpse at the dinner in the works (date TBA).
