To kick off the first (annual) NYC Meat Week (November 7th-12th) in style, "Meat with a Twist" will bring together the best chefs and mixologists for a cocktail-food pairing party on November 7th from 6-10 p.m. at City Winery. "Meat with a Twist" features 10 cocktails paired with 10 chef selections highlighting local, sustainably grown meat, such as duck, lamb, chicken, pork, beef, bison and ostrich. The party will launch a week's worth of events throughout the city that celebrate the slow food movement bringing sustainable meat to our tables.
Presented by Food Karma Projects (producers of Pig Island, Cook Out NYC, Brewers4Brewers Japan Benefit, NYC Brewers Choice) in partnership with Food Systems Network NYC, "Meat with a Twist" allows local chefs who support the greenmarket farms and slow food movements to show off their skills, while bringing attention to sustainable meat practices. Jimmy Carbone (Jimmy's No. 43), explains, "After working with Just Food meat CSAs, such as The Piggery and High Point Farms, NYC Meat Week is meant to be an awareness builder, with sustainable meat- centered events and panels about small family meat farms."
