Since it is the work of the mother hens at Handsome Brook Farm that fuels the wholesome eggs that are produced, it’s only right to honor them and show them our gratitude. In order to do this, Handsome Brook Farm has partnered with a slew of talented female chefs; including Chef Deborah Van Trece, Chef Leah Cohen and Chef Soraya Kilgore, all from across the country that are making important strides in their respective food communities. Here at FeedfeedBrooklyn, we were lucky enough to host three of these amazing chefs for a gorgeous seated dinner with our New York City community members (about four dozen, to be egg-zact).
We kicked off the night with some scrumptious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails. Guests helped themselves to cheesy Cacio e Pepe Gougères, a gorgeous crudite spread with herb aioli (what’s an aioli without some fresh eggs?!), and plenty of cheese and charcuterie boards. The bar was cranking out two housemade cocktails, the Brownstone Fizz and the Handsome Gent. The former consisted of rich Irish cream, moon shine, chocolate bitters, and Handsome Brook Farm Pasture-Raised Organic Egg Whites, while the latter was made up of dark rum, fresh lemon juice, spicy strawberry syrups, and Handsome Brook Farm Pasture-Raised Organic Egg Whites. In other words, these cocktails were (quite literally), no yolk!
