Photos From Last Night's Food Book Party: Gay Food 101

One of New York City's most tantalizing annual events, Food Book Fair, has spun off a new series called Food Book Party. And what a party it was! The series kicked off on Thursday, October 8, with "Gay Food 101: An Oral History," an exploration of gay culture and food culture, in restaurants, aesthetics and food media. The event was centered around a moderated conversation between editors from two premier publications devoted to this very topic, Jarry and Mouthfeel magazines, alongside Glady's beverage director Shannon Mustipher and food writer John Birdsall. Max and Eli Sussman's Ed and Bev's outpost served up chili-smothered hot dogs and fries with black and white cookies and brownies from Baked for dessert. Stay tuned to Food Republic for full details on the next events, scheduled for November 5 and December 3.
