Le Grand Fooding Brooklyn Details Are Nothing Short of Mind-Exploding

It's back.

It's back.

Although there hasn't yet been an official announcement, ticket listings went live this morning (before being pulled after the group saw this post)* for this year's anticipated installment of Le Grand Fooding New York, and the event now has a Facebook page. The multi-day party, with many installments in a few locations, doubles as a massive benefit for Action Against Hunger, and this year is called, appropriately, Le Fooding Brooklyn Fling. First details make it seem a lot less of a grand GoogaMooga rubbernecking blowout, and more like a pared-down panopoly of culinary firepower. The schedule, now available online, starts September 19 and runs through September 23. You're going to want to see what's in store.

It's a full week: The Franks will cook with Sean Brock at Frankie's 457, while legendary French chef Alain Senderens will work vegan magic at Maimonide of Brooklyn with American-in-Paris chef Daniel Rose. The Frej team will meet up with London's lauded Young Turks; Danny Bowien, Hugue Dufour, Pierre Hermé, ex-Isa chef Ignacio Mattos, and others will join a veritable global village of street food vendors during the Brooklyn Fling.

Yasiin Bey and Mike D. are performing at the Campfire Session on Sunday, September 23, and Magnus Nilsson is teaming up with Bertrand Grébaut and Van Leeuwen Ice Cream for what will likely be a reindeer-free "picnic in the magical heart of the Brooklyn Flea," which will take the form of an "avant-garde homage to vintage foods."

Here's a closer look at TicketLeap's breakdown of the weekend.
