Earlier this month, one of our favorite Larder friends, Gail Simmons, hosted a book signing here at BKLYN Larder. Customers and fans alike filtered in and out of the store, as Gail signed copies of her new cookbook, Bringing It Home, and offered tastings of her signature borscht and black licorice brownies, all made by our Executive Chef Grayson Schmitz.
As some food-tv fanatics may know, Grayson was formerly a contestant on Top Chef, so the night also served as an unintentional, but very welcome, Top Chef reunion.
Gail and Grayson chatted with guests over borscht and caviar, while Ben, one of our managers, offered a selection of BKLYN Larder cheeses to those walking throughout the store. David, our favorite Barrika cider representative, manned the drinks table, doling out samples of beer and Barrika cider throughout the night.
