food vendors

Canning workshopThis Saturday (10/1) at 3:00pm we offer another exciting culinary workshop exploring The Art of The Tomato Sauce. Join Chef Nicola Maurello of Pasticcio, who serves up delicious traditional Italian food at Dekalb Market seven days a week, and Mark Hellerman, a farmer at the Dekalb Farm and professor at near-by Cuny City Tech, to produce a tomato sauce for all seasons and all tastes.

We will be joined by the students from the Hospitality Dept at City Tech who do plenty of sauce making during their rigorous training in the culinary arts. At the Tomato Sauce Canning Workshop their enthusiasm and culinary interest will be essential as they work with Chef Nicola and wife, Nina, who have been creating sauces for their family for the past 24 years! Now that’s a lot of tomatoes.

And it wouldn’t be Dekalb Sauce without produce from the farm. We will be harvesting Genovese basil and oregano right up to go-time to ensure our commitment to hyper-local, super-fresh continues. We can’t wait to see you there.
