Chutney Appetizes at Brooklyn Food Coalition Roundtable and Dinner

The Brooklyn Food Coalition is an all-important and ultra-cool local organization dedicated to changing the food system in Brooklyn neighborhood by neighborhood. These grassrooters state the org's mission as "a partnership of groups and individuals working in Brooklyn to achieve a just and sustainable system for tasty, healthy, and affordable food and to provide a platform for Brooklynites to speak to food issues." As like-minded comrades we say Amen! to that and The Collective is looking forward to joining Friday's upcoming roundtable dinner addressing North Brooklyn concerns, kindly hosted by Brooklyn Kitchen. The DP Chutney Collective will be donating our wares and preparing appetizers for the participants: Chicken Liver Crostini with our Blueberry and Bermuda Onion Chutney and, for vegetarians, ricotta salata and Spiced Pickled Grape mini skewers.

Find out more about the BFC here and, if you live or work (or just hang out sometimes) in our borough sign up and make a difference in the ongoing revolution of affordable, sustainable and ethically-produced and sourced foodstuffs.
