Good news, peoples! Back by popular demand, the dynamic duo of Suarez & Peck (of Beer Experiment fame) are giving us another opportunity to food fight for glory: The Brooklyn Cheese Experiment. And whoa – that segue was so opportune that you KNOW I didn’t plan it. I am just not that slick.
Mark your calendars and buy your tickets now for September 13th at the Bell House in Brooklyn. I can’t say it enough times: BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW! At the Beer Experiment, I literally had to count how many people were in line with tickets and without and then had to advise those without to maybe stroll around the block a few times until a portion of the 300 ticket holders tired out and left, thereby making room. Of course, waiting for people to tire out in the middle of a lazy Sunday afternoon when there’s mass quantities of food and homebrew to be sampled is like waiting for Godot. So one more time: BUY YOUR TICKETS NOW! Oh, and while you’re buying your tickets, definitely include the after party in your purchase! That’s usually where all the really good debauchery takes place. Not that I’ll be involved (insert wide-eyed Asian girl ‘blink blink’ here) – I’m usually just an amused spectator.
I’m sure your next thought is whether or not I’ll be competing. The answer is hells no. If I wanted to be openly and vocally judged on how well I cook, I would either: 1) show up for work or 2) cook for my parents. Neither of those things sound fun on a Sunday afternoon. Besides, somebody has to roll plastic utensils in paper napkins and I already have the napkin rolling calluses needed for the job after my last production assistant gig at the Beer Experiment. Those napkins don’t roll themselves, people! You’re welcome!
For those of you brave cheese addicts who want to seize the chance to strut your culinary stuff, why not enter and compete??? Please let me know if you do so I can stop by, sample, and photo-blitz the hell out of your entry! The cheese gauntlet has been thrown! Which of you is woman/man enough to accept the challenge?! (Er, like I said, not me, but best of luck to all of you!) So go ahead, click on the link, enter your idea, and cue “Eye of the Tiger” and start cheese recipe creating!
Oh, quick disclaimer for those of you think that I have some sort of stake in this. Let me assure you that like everything else in my cooking career thus far, I will be working at this event for free. I wouldn’t want to tarnish my reputation as cheap labor! Nope, I’m in it for the free admission and love of the game. If you weren’t lucky enough to be at The Beer Experiment, let me just assure you that this event will INCREDIBLE. It’s hard to get me out of my apartment on a Sunday short of leaving a cheeseburger trail out my front door. So for me to eagerly hike it on down to Brooklyn from the boonies of the upper east side, you know this event must be special.
Ok, ok, enough with selling. The Cheese Experiment. September 13th. Bell House, Brooklyn. Be there.
