10 Taste Sensations at the ‘Brooklyn Eats’ Food Show

PB&J pretzels. Whiskey Sour pickles. Chocolate-covered matzoh. Jerk-chicken sausage. Pomegranate ginger ale.  Sound like Brooklyn to you? How sweet (and savory) it is! Nearly 100 Brooklyn-based makers of such delicacies will be sharing their wares this Friday, June 23, at Brooklyn Eats, the borough’s largest food-and-beverage trade show. The makers are there to pitch their products to local and international buyers and distributors, but consumers are welcome too. (The show is free of charge for merchants and $10 for members of the public.)

The annual show, orchestrated by the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce at the New York Marriott at the Brooklyn Bridge, 333 Adams St., drew 2,000 visitors last year. What qualifies as a quintessential Brooklyn comestible? “To say a food or beverage is made in Brooklyn conjures images of a high quality, interesting and tasty product,” states Andrew Hoan, president and CEO of the chamber. OK, sounds tempting. The Bridge picked out a sneak preview of ten we’d like to try.
