New York Festival Celebrates Meat

Carnivores, take heart: Meatopia, a decidedly different food festival, is returning to New York on Saturday.

Founded by food writer Josh Ozersky, the event gathers celebrated chefs for an evening of carnivore-centric sips and bites, the Daily News reports.

This year’s event, taking place September 8 on Randalls Island, will include close to 50 culinary names, including grill expert Adam Perry Lang, self-professed pig lover April Bloomfield and master butcher Pat LaFrieda.

“There are all these barbecue festivals with 20 guys cooking the exact same thing, so I really wanted to expose people to the full range and power and glory of meat,” Ozersky told the paper. “Beef, pork, veal, lamb, squab, duck, quail, you name it.”

Menu highlights include Grilled Pork Cheeks with Late-Summer Mostarda (Marea’s Michael White), Sizzling Veal Brisket with Charred Garlic Scapes (Mile End’s Noah Bernamoff) and Venison Steaks and Marinated Tenderloin Medallions (U.S. Navy Seal Cooking Team).
