Check out the highlights from our summer feast sponsored by Stella Artois and Feastly at North Brooklyn Farms, featuring food from chef Theo Friedman of Theory Kitchen.
French Chocolate Macarons with Chocolate Ganache
No lie: macarons can be fairly finicky to make, in that they might spread into uneven shapes or form dark spots on their tops—but even if they're not as beautiful as bakery specimens, they will still be delicious.

What to Grill Before the Summer Ends
Before the summer is over we look at less-conventional foods to throw on the grill.
Chef Theo Friedman's dinners center around multi-course, intimate, and experimental pop-up experiences. He brings new perspectives to food by being inspired by artists, ingredients, and the passionate diners who attend his one-of-a-kind events. In honor of Chef Theo's partnership with Stella Artois, he takes advantage of Union Square Greenmarket's and North Brooklyn Farms' fresh produce to create the ultimate end of summer menu.
Chef Theo Friedman meets with one of North Brooklyn Farms' farmers to discuss the chef−produce purveyor relationship, in addition to the importance of seasonality and flavor when developing the menus for his transformative culinary events. In preparation for his Stella Artois dinner party, Chef Theo then visits Union Square Greenmarket to pick out fresh, local ingredients for his end-of-summer celebration.
