Last week Edible Manhattan hosted the sixth edition of their Edible Escape tasting event at the Angel Orensanz Foundation. Guests ate and drank at their leisure from globally inspired dishes and drinks while mingling and talking to the vendors.

To start we moseyed over to the Bira 91 table to test out some of their beers. This Indian beer brand offered samples of their white and blonde varieties and I was over the moon about the light and smooth taste. Their super cute monkey logo is a great touch to their brand identity as well! We also enjoyed Cusqueña beer hailing from Peru.

Getting hungry, we headed over to the Streets table for their signature Southern African peri-peri wings where I resisted scarfing down more than five drumsticks in a row. Black & Bolyard Brown Butter showcased their butter with samples of cornbread baked with their butter, with a generous slab of more butter on top. The sweetness of the butter made the cornbread dessert-like, and we couldn’t help but returning back to the table several times.

Halifax Restaurant served ricotta cavatelli with lamb. The dish featured house-made pasta, locally foraged mushrooms, lamb from New Jersey, and topped with freshly shaved parmesan cheese. Other delicious eats included plantain-crusted warmed goat cheese medallions from Esperanto NY and slow-cooked shredded buffalo chicken rilettes from Le Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels.

One of my favorite chocolates ever is Royce Chocolate from Japan. Their tastings included samples of their infamously soft nama chocolates and chocolate-covered potato chips, which left me floored. Stock up on these delicious chocolates, which make great gifts for holidays and special occasions! (Hint, hint.)
