Food Book Fair 2015 has come and gone, and we couldn’t be happier with how it all went down. On April 10th-12th, we welcomed over 1,000 people for 25+ events over the course of 3 days at The Wythe Hotel in Brooklyn, NY. Here are just a few of the highlights from #FBF2015:

We learned about the quirky development of American Chinese food, that using less sugar can actually enhance flavor, and that Mimi Sheraton came from a family of amateur food critics. We chatted with the makers, designers, and writers of over twenty foodieodicals. We browsed the 50+ cookbooks, food memoirs and almanacs at our Kitchen Arts and Letters Pop Up-Bookstore. We ate outstanding food and drink from Bar Tartine, Death & Co., Quinciple, Fleisher’s, Vermont Creamery and more. And we wrapped it all up by slurping Island Creek Oysters and drinking refreshing Brooklyn Brewery beer.

If you’re feeling nostalgic, feel free to browse through some of the great photos of FBF2015 on Facebook.

What a tremendous success Food Book Fair 2015 was. We couldn’t have produced it without our amazing participants, partners, and volunteers. Thank you to everyone who leant a helping hand and contributed to what was arguably the best Food Book Fair yet. ‘Til next year…

The New York Academy of Medicine, an independent organization that helps address and solve health issues in urban populations, helped put together tomorrow’s panel. We’re lucky that they did. Historical cookbooks offer a unique, specific and often unrealized insight into the ways that food and societies transform over time. The sharing and criss crossing of ingredients can result in the creation of entirely new dishes and cuisines. Hear all about it tomorrow at the cookbooks and history panel and the food and empire panel.
