SBU's "Food Maven" presents The History of Drinking in New York
The author of "Arthur Schwartz's New York City Food" will share his expertise on the origin of Manhattan's specialty drinks from the Bloody Mary to the Cosmopolitan, as well as his favorite local wine offerings. With each drink, Schwartz will also match up some definitive New York foods, including Nathan's hot dogs, a Second Avenue Deli sandwich, and spectacular local cheeses and smoked seafood.
"I am thrilled and flattered to be among the first programs offered by this new division of Stony Brook University," Schwartz said. "We will partake of drinks from Bloody Marys to my favorite Long Island wines." As a special treat, Schwartz will team up with the director of the Center for Wine, Food and Culture, Louisa Hargrave, to invent a new cocktail appropriately called "The Stony Brook."
Participants must be 21 or over to attend and participate in the event and space is limited. A fee of $85 will include the lecture, food and wine tasting, and an autographed copy of Schwartz’s new book. Call 631.632.9404 to register or visit Stony Brook’s Center for Wine, Food, and Culture online.
