Ciderfeast: Great ciders take the spotlight

A week ago, I checked out Ciderfeast that took place at Solar One on the East River. It was the perfect event for the cider aficionado. Jimmy Carbone, owner of Jimmy’s No. 43 and founder of Food Karma Projects hosted the annual event. Over a dozen cider producers poured more than 30 varieties at the feast. Some of the brands included Downeast from Maine, Original Sin from New York, Shacksbury from Vermont, E.Z. Orchards from Oregon, Doc’s Draft Ciders from New York, Le Brun from France, Aspall from England, Austin Eastsiders from Texas, and Big Apple Cider from NY. There was a great mix of dry, semi-dry, and sweet cider blends.

In addition, the event included a variety of entertaining elements. EscapeMaker had a table onsite to share information about their fascinating agritourism destinations. The band Shockwaves entertained guests with a splendid performance. The event also featured a variety of food selections from Jimmy’s No. 43 and Harry Hawk’s Schnack Burgers. I got to try watermelon salad, Mexican street style corn on the cob, chicken tacos, burgers, and sautéed vegetables with sour cream. The food paired really well with the cider selections. What an entertaining and informative event about ciders!
