No Fracking Way: Join NY Chefs at Anti-Fracking Fundraiser in Brooklyn, 7/26

The fight against fracking in New York has gained momentum among chefs, farmers, small business owners, and concerned citizens.

On Thursday, July 26, Brooklyn Winery will host Taste of The Marcellus at Brooklyn Winery to benefit New Yorkers Against Fracking and Chefs for the Marcellus. Featuring dishes from chefs Michael Anthony (Gramercy Tavern), Zak Pelaccio (Fatty ‘Cue), Bill Telepan (Telepan), Chris Santos (The Stanton Social), and other culinary luminaries, the event, sponsored by StarChefs, will be the most delicious way to stand up for the environment with your fellow foodies.

Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is the process of drilling and injecting fluid into the ground at a high pressure in order to fracture shale rocks to release natural gas inside. It sounds simple(ish), but, if you’re worried about the quality of your drinking water, among other things, it’s a lot more complicated than it seems. A lot. In New York, fracking is not yet legal — but it could be. New York chefs, proud drinkers of some of the nation’s tastiest tap water and supporters of sustainability, are banding together to help stop fracking in its tracks.

Purchase tickets today to enjoy amazing seasonal eats, plus unlimited pours of Brooklyn Winery’s own New York wines, Brewery Ommegang beers, Eve’s Cidery hard ciders, and Tuthilltown cocktails. We’ll see you in the BK tomorrow!
