Happy New Year everyone!
Fresh beginnings call for fresh cheeses, and recently, I have been digging my hands deep into the curd and the kitchen. Have a craving for homemade cheese? Every Friday at SkytownBK in Bushwick, I am crafting a dinner menu inspired by my winter creamery creations: mozzarella, ricotta, and crème fraîche. The hand crafted cheeses will evolve seasonally, as will the menu.
This past week, I made my first burrata in-house: a pouch of freshly stretched mozzarella curd filled with creamy house ricotta. Chef Darin Gregory drizzled honey over the top as I dusted it with chili flake. It was a glorious moment. The house burrata will arrive on the menu this coming February.
This Friday’s menu highlights a few classic Italian dishes that pair excellently with my creamery creations. The bar will offer you a variety of cocktail pairings and your belly will be happy.
