Tom Mylan, one of the cofounders of the Brooklyn Kitchen, has described it as a "clubhouse" for the burgeoning Brooklyn artisan food scene. Housed in an old brick factory in Williamsburg, it's equal parts retail shop, butcher shop, and classroom. Upcoming courses include how to make fresh mozzarella, how to pickle and jam, making home-brew, and improving your knife skills. It's also quite a piece of eye candy, from the tattooed, thrift-store-fashionable people working and shopping there to the carefully curated new and vintage kitchen goods for sale. Check out our slideshow to see what we mean.
