DIY Salon at Crafty Bastards Farm
The D.I.Y Salon powered by Union Market will showcase the creative process behind craft food – illuminating the real characters that bring artisanal product to market.
A rich cast of DC’s noted food “crafters” will take the stage to tell stories that explore the intersection of history, arts, food, and sustainability. Our aim is to inspire and educate, to give the audience the insight, skills and confidence to become food crafters themselves. Which is why we partnered with Union Market, who is in the process of executing an ambitious plans to revive the old warehouse district off New York and Florida Avenue (just west of Gallaudet University) —one of the oldest ‘farmers markets’ in the city.
Here are just a few of the D.I.Y presentations we’ve got on tap:
Barry Koslow – Bread and Butter Pickles
Barry Koslow has helmed the kitchens at some of DC’s best restaurants and was recently named the ‘Chosen Chef’ by Forward Magazine. Barry will share the craft of pickling, an old-world tradition that is now emerging in craft delicatessens across the country.
Jeremy Brosowsky — Composting in the City
Jeremy Brosowsky started Compost Cab in DC last year to make it easy for urbanites to compost. The mission of the business is to create healthier, sustainable, more productive cities through innovative agriculture. He will give a hands-on lecture that digs into the muck of the perfect compost pile.
Robb Duncan — The Art of Gelato
Robb Duncan is the founder of local gelateria Dolcezza. His products feature a bounty of local ingredients, mixing up innovative blends of fruits, herbs, and spices. Robb will teach the essentials to making a cardamom and pistachio gelato.
Join us for this grown-up show and tell (and taste) with some of DC’s best culinary talent and learn more about the exciting new developments at Union Market at the first ever Crafty Bastards Farm.
