A bit of local news today:
The Brooklyn Kitchen, a kitchenware shop that also holds small, usually one-off cooking classes, announced via email newsletter today that it is opening a new location called The Meat Hook.
The Meat Hook, which will open November 9, will be a huge 7,000 square-food space with two full service teaching kitchens, allowing the Brooklyn Kitchen to now hold weekend classes (previously, most classes were held weekday evenings). The space will also house more retail and a new butcher shop. Upcoming classes in November, in fact, will feature pig butchery, but they have largely filled up already.
