We’ve been big fans of Lucky Peach since day one— so we couldn’t be more thrilled that co-founder Peter Meehan is giving a Master’s Tea at 4:00 pm tomorrow in Branford College.
And, as if that by itself weren’t enough, he’s bringing gifts and guests— David Chang, chef of Momofuku, will be there as well, plus we have a limited number of copies of Lucky Peach Issue 3 to give away. The magazines were generously provided by the publisher, so if you like what you see you should probably go ahead and subscribe in order to support their excellent work.
Last week we were thrilled to join Calhoun College in welcoming Anne Saxelby, of Saxelby Cheesemongers, and Patrick Martins, of Heritage Foods USA, for a conversation about marketing and selling sustainable products. Anne started her stall in Essex Market in order to promote the incredible cheeses produced in New England; Patrick sees his business as a crucial connection between small-scale farmers and the big city restaurateurs they want to serve. They also contribute to the conversation with a radio station devoted to sustainable living.
Here are some pictures of the tea, the cheese tasting Anne led, and the dinner YSFP student staff helped prepare with meats sourced from Heritage Foods and produce from our very own Yale Farm. It was a fascinating afternoon, and a delicious meal!
