When our friends at sweetgreen​ called us up about curating picnic baskets for a rooftop dinner party at Brooklyn Grange, of course we said yes! The baskets were spread out across the long farm table, so folks invited could break bread together (literally!) with cheese, salami, radishes, and gooseberries from Good Eggs. It was an absolutely beautiful night with an inspirational group of people - and how about that view?!

Here’s what everyone enjoyed:

- Bien Cuit Ciabatta Loaves

- Brooklyn Brine Pickles

- Ardith Mae Goat Cheese

- Charlito’s Dry Fig “Salami”

- Willow Wisp Organic Breakfast Radishes

- Myers Produce Gooseberries (out of season now, boo!)

The hodgepodge of small bites in the basket make a lovely gift for friends and family! We’ll be providing them for a few weddings in the fall which we’re really excited about. Picnic on!

So, we had an absolutely incredible weekend upstate at Fishkill Farms. Good Eggs NYC city lead Josh Morgenthau runs his family’s farm up there and they were celebrating Peachtopia, their annual peach festival. We Eggs can’t refuse a festival centered around peaches, so we carpooled up to enjoy the gorgeous day!

We ate peaches picked right off the orchard trees and filled our baskets with tomatoes, kale, corn, fairytale eggplant, and squash for a big home-cooked dinner that night. After attempting to pile all 16 of us into the back of a pickup truck, and finding that the truck could not move (woops!), we ran through the fields behind the truck back to the house to start cooking.

We fired up the grill for burgers and brioche buns, started shucking corn for the salad, and popped open plenty of wine from the Fingerlakes. Flower crowns were made, a guitar was pulled out, and there may have been a group singalong. We finished off the night with a swim in the saltwater pool followed by Josh’s famous upside-down peach cake topped with creme anglaise and local vanilla ice cream. Needless to say, it was a farm adventure for the books!

All of the food, besides  the produce picked at the farm, came from Good Eggs. See below for our (loosely construed) menu:

- Dickson’s Grass-Fed Beef Burgers with Hot Bread Kitchen Brioche Buns
- Fishkill Farms Tomato, Corn & Fresh Herb Salad
- Fishkill Farms Grilled Summer Squash
- Fishkill Farms Mango Donut Peach Cake (Josh’s famous recipe)

Fishkill Farms also throws an annual apple festival in the fall so we’ll be back up there in a few months. We can’t wait!

“The flavor is incredible. It’s like a 5-year old kid running around like crazy because they are so full of energy. Microgreens are no different. They’re like little kids booming and pushing through.” —Brendan Davison, Good Water Farms

Check out this inspiring video about Brendan and how he grows his magnificent microgreens at Good Water Farms in East Hampton. Our talented friend Liza de Guia of the food video series Food Curated spent the day shooting with Brendan in order to share his story with all of you!
