Featured Author Event: Ina Yalof
Author Ina Yalof will be signing copies of her new book FOOD AND THE CITY (G.P. Putnam’s Sons) on Sunday (7/24) at Brooklyn Brewery’s pop-up event at Vendy Plaza at La Marqueta. From 2:00 to 4:00 pm, come by and get your book signed and sample some delicious pairings of food and beer from Brooklyn Brewery.
In FOOD AND THE CITY, Ina Yalof takes us inside New York City’s bustling food world through the people that make it all happen. Chefs, street vendors, waiters, and restauranteurs all lend their voices to this behind-the-scenes look at the city’s unparalleled foodie culture. Having previously written about medicine, science, religion, and happiness, Yalof changed gears and dove into the stories of those who call the city’s food scene their home and discovered why they’ve dedicated their lives to the culinary industry. Each unique story sheds light on the hardship, passion, and determination required to bring the diverse food landscape to life and what it really takes to succeed.
Every Sunday from 12 noon to 6:00 pm, Vendy Plaza brings together Vendy Award finalists and emerging food vendors to East Harlem’s La Marqueta. Vendy Plaza has everything you need for “Sunday funday,” with live music, a beer garden, and plenty of food to try. This Sunday, Brooklyn Brewery is making its way to Vendy Plaza with a pop-up featuring beer paired with dishes, food cooked with beer, and samples of rare Brooklyn offerings. The Vendy Plaza outdoor market series is free and open to the public.
