Last month, I hosted a cooking a class at Honey’s, the tasting room of Enlightenment Wines, a next-generation winery specializing in honey wine and experimental fermentation, alcoholic and non-alcoholic. Twelve guests spent the day eating, drinking and cooking from my book, Salad for President: A Cookbook Inspired by Artists. But this wasn’t your average cooking class. This experience took place on the most innovative square block of Brooklyn’s Bushwick neighborhood. We began with a visit to Smallhold, the only mushroom farm in the borough, on the cutting edge of growing technology. We harvested pink, yellow and grey oyster mushrooms ourselves, and brought them next door. There, we took a tour of the winery, meet the winemakers (and their very own honeybees), and sampled their range of meads. Using Smallhold mushrooms we had a hands-on salad party.
