Talk about a good day. A few Saturdays ago I was invited to not one, but two glorious home cooked feasts here in Brooklyn. And let me tell you, restaurants have nothing on my friends!
The first spread, a block party in Boerum Hill on what must be the city's foodiest street, featured an entire pig that was roasted to perfection under hot coals in a specially designed box. The neighbor-chefs brilliantly served it with grilled tortillas alongside homemade red and green salsas. It. Was. Spectacular!
The second feast, in Sunset Park, featured a succulent (oven) roasted pork dish, but it shared the spotlight with an generous array of Caribbean inspired dishes, including a gorgeous Roast Chicken, Christophene with Red Onions, Beets with Carrots & Goat Cheese, Plum Upside Down Cake and a Sweet Plaintain Gratin.
As tasty as it all was, the company at both events way out-shined the food. Big Fun! Thanks Tony & Lynn and Felix & Christine for the invitations!
