The First Annual NYC Chowder Slam is being held at Jimmy’s No. 43 in the East Village. I have never had a good chowder in New York, but maybe these particular soups will rise to the occasion. And, it’s all for a good cause–to support New Amsterdam Market, which is trying to get enough funds together to create a year-round market for grocers, mongers, and other purveyors of local food.
Here are the details:
Saturday, March 21
12 noon-5 pm
Jimmy’s No. 43
43 East 7th Street
New York, NY
Join us for for a day of tasting chowders of varied exciting influences, tall tales and chalices of brew.
Call for cooks, eaters, press….
$20 at the door will benefit New Amsterdam Market, a local organization promoting our region’s agriculture and building a new community of purveyors, whose common goal is to pioneer environmentally and socially responsible food production: www.newamsterdammarket.org
Professional, burgeoning professional, and swarthy seafaring cooks will be sharing maritime delights + Jimmy’s No.43 will have a strong selection of New England craft beers.
