During this season of traditions, we've invited terrain friends and partners around the country to share favorite stories, memorable meals, and entertaining tidbits from their own holiday tables.
terrain: What traditions define a Brooklyn Slate gathering of friends and family?
Brooklyn Slate: Amazing food. We are incredibly fortunate to have so many friends and family who are chefs, farmers, pickle makers, bakers, chutney makers etc. We really love to set up a huge table and have a feast with all of our friends. Since moving to our new studio in Red Hook we have had a few large gatherings on our loading dock that overlooks the Red Hook Community Garden. I think we may have found the quietest and most peaceful block to be on in Brooklyn!
terrain: When it comes to entertaining at the holidays, what are your favorite elements for a lively evening?
Brooklyn Slate: Good friends, good food and amazing music.
terrain: After the tastes you offered us at Brooklyn Day earlier this year we’d love to know… What’s on your Thanksgiving cheese plate this year?
Brooklyn Slate: We will definitely have Bayley Hazen Blue and Cabot Clothbound. I am also thinking Vermont Butter and Cheese Company Chèvre and Old Kentucky Tomme from Capriole Farms.
