If you haven’t visit the New Amsterdam Market yet, what are you waiting for?! So here is what you missed…
Anthony Road Winery from Penn Yann, Upstate NY hosted a public wine stomp event inviting visitors to get their feet massaged in a barrel of high quality Chardonnay grapes. The wine stomp was very popular. Afterall how often do you have Chardonnay grapes pampering your feet? The aftermath of the wine stomp I’m not too sure about… Dare to sip on white wine with the stomp contribution of many New Yorkers? I can assure it is a multi-region blend.
This week guest vendor Green, Brown, Orange served some seasonal prepared dishes at the New Amsterdam Market. Green, Brown, Orange is a catering, cafe, and private party business with a cafe located on the Lower East Side. Green for Catering. Brown for Cafe. Orange for Epicerie. The dishes were served from a hot buffet stand consisting, mushroom frittata, beets & carrots salad, and fingerling potatoes ($4 each). I tried one of everything with an agua fresca ($3) which is a very refreshing grapefruit mint lemonade beverage. The dishes are very rustic and the taste transports you to a country farm. The fingerling potatoes and carrots are unpeeled which I am not accustom to but I appreciated the notion that nothing goes to waste. The crunchiness of the julienne carrots and beets is a nice contrast and are lightly seasoned. The mushroom frittata was, what can I say, it has the combination of eggs and mushrooms both of my favorite.
The ultimate foodie favorite is the infamous BACON! There are some unusual innovative bacon out there and Liddabit Sweets acknowledges this craze with their bourbon- coffee- bacon caramel kettle popcorn ($5) Bourbon – checked. Coffee- checked. Caramel – triple checked. Bacon- checked. I love kettle popcorn, kettle potato chips, the process using kettle really enhances the ingredient. Liddabit Sweets bourbon-coffee-bacon caramel kettle popcorn was heavily empowered by the caramel taste, depending on whether you are a caramel fan this could be heaven. The bacon bits was disappointingly inconsistent with nearly a strip of bacon in my bag of bourbon-coffee-bacon caramel kettle popcorn but the flavor of skillet fried bacon vs the sweetness of the bourbon and caramel gives you the desire of asking for more. Liddabit Sweets offers a variety of treats at the New Amsterdam Market handmade with love and perfect for any gift baskets.
