We’ve been here before. The “War on Women” is not only an ages old issue, but an extraordinarily tired one. The painful events of this past week in Alabama are certainly salt in a long open wound but, they forget - we know how to use salt to pack a punch. In addition to sparking new opportunities to support those living in areas with restrictive reproductive policies, it’s added fuel to an already raging fire for the female candidates running in the 2020 election.
So, we persevere, as we have always done and as we will always do.
“I ask no favors for my sex. I surrender not our claim to equality. All I ask of our brethren is, that they will take their feet from off our necks, and permit us to stand upright on that ground which God designed us to occupy.” Sarah Grimké
Eat Well. Move More. Stress Less. Love More. The pillars of the healing protocol UnDo It!, a lifestyle program geared toward preventing and even reversing chronic disease. Our favorite way to cure ourselves through chow? With our Vegetarian Mediterranean class, the healthiest (and perhaps still the most delicious) diet around.
SUNS OUT, BUNS OUT
With SPF season finally here, we’re all about al fresco dining - and while we’d all love to have access to unlimited outdoor space, we live in NYC, so we need to get creative with our “grilling”. Join us on June 25th for a BBQ Bonanza Without the Grill.
WHERE CRUST IS KING
FIGHTING FOOD INSECURITY
Enormous props go out to the members of Teens for Food Justice, who recently conducts an audit of the bodegas and stores across the Bronx and Brooklyn, to identify the fresh, healthy food available at an affordable price point in so-called “food deserts”.
TASTE OF THE TROPICS
Warmer weather has us craving exotic eats (I mean what says summer like a tiny umbrella in a brightly colored beverage?) - join us as we bring the sunshine to our supper with our Caribbean Cooking class on July 23rd.
DINING LIKE A DANCER
Prima Ballerina, Misty Copeland, transfers her innate creativity from the stage to the kitchen with her go to flounder dish. (We’re also pretty smitten with seafood as evidenced by our upcoming Fish Fry, Lobster Boil and Fish Butchery classes.)
EATING WITH OUR EYES
While the ever revolving door of new city eateries can feel a little exhausting, there’s no denying the magic of NYC’s classic dining establishments. From The Lambs Club to Bleecker Street Pizza, the newly published “All the Restaurants” diagrams five boroughs worth of fabulous food.
FEMALE FORWARD FERTILITY
In a week that saw our nation take an enormous step backwards, it’s important to focus on those making important moves to progress women’s healthcare, like Kindbody, a new retail and mobile boutique offering full service fertility support to women across New York.
LUSH LONG ISLAND
Drinks are on the docket in this season’s issue of Edible Long Island, getting us giddy with excitement for our upcoming Cooking with Cocktails class with Matchbook Distilling for our North Fork Popup in July.
SWEET AND SOUR SUMMER
While our appetites for acid are increasing, we’re still harboring a serious sweet tooth, and can’t wait for our Summer Fruit Spotlight, where we’ll be blissfully buried in berries by the end of class.
PASTRY FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD
We can imagine few better ways to tame the bad taste left by Alabama law makers than with the sweetness being served up at Cafe Altro Paradiso, for their enormously successful annual bake sale in support of Planned Parenthood.
