For NYC Honey Week’s 3rd Annual Solid Gold Supper, we're teaming up with the beekeepers-turned-distillers at Caledonia Spirits, and Chef Arden Lewis of Purslane, the events and catering arm of popular Brooklyn restaurant, Rucola, to present a family style celebration of honey, bees, and the producers who help protect them!
Picture this: Six foot tall sunflowers line the paths, arugula shimmers gently in the breeze, and sun-gold tomatoes hang ripely on the vines. Bees head home to their hives as the sun starts to set, glittering over the manhattan skyline. You’re handed a cocktail, crafted with local honey and spirits provided by Caledonia. You feel special, sparkly, on top of the world: you’ve arrived at the third Annual “Solid Gold Supper.”
Throughout the night, you'll feast on the bounty of September harvests. We'll gather around a long table at Brooklyn Grange's Brooklyn Navy Yard farm, for a multi-course, family style banquet showcasing local honey-touched dishes, and paired with craft cocktails made from sustainably-raised grain. Our featured beekeepers will be seated amongst the guests, ready to regale us with tales of their favorite queens, and tell us about the hives that have produced the liquid gold we're enjoying. And Caledonia Spirits will share their story of transitioning from apiarists to distillers in Vermont's Champlain Valley, a truly inspirational tale made more so over sips of libations and Chef Arden's fresh, clean dishes. It will be a night to remember, and balm for the weary souls of New York City's busy bees. By the evening's end, you'll be buzzing with warmth and excitement over great food, amazing drinks, and the discovery of the best local products our region has to offer.
