Edible Queens

The First Annual Edible Queens Winter Warm Up took place today at the new apartment building of the Lhaus, from 12pm to 3pm, LIC. Plenty of local visitors and guests from all over the city had the chance to take a tour at the Lhaus condos, taste mouthwatering local food and get their caffeine fix offered by Sweetleaf cafe and their Stumptown beans...Some of the local restaurants and cafés that were present giving out canapés and hors d' oeuvres were: The LIC Market with baked carrots topped with tapenade and fig mostarda with cheese on crostini; Red Jacket Orchards with fresh cider and apples; Testaccio with pulled oxtail and crostini; This chick bakes with green tea lemon cookies and amazing cupcakes; Bareburger with unique chocolate and vanilla peanut butter milkshakes and a few more I forget!

Attendees picked a goodie bag containing the Edible Queens magazine, complimentary Cherre bottles and both fig and tapenade jars. It was a nice Sunday afternoon with awesome views and live music, what else someone can ask in January?
