In Harlem, Food is more than just food–It’s Culture and Progress. Incorportating Influences from around the globe, Harlem’s culinary scene is constantly evolving and expanding.
It’s officially summertime in NY as we were finally greeted with some warm weather this past week! Summertime brings warm weather, concerts and FOOD Festivals! I’m so excited to be kicking off my summer festival series in my backyard Harlem. This past weekend I had the pleasure of being able to attend the Harlem Eat up Grand Tasting that took place Saturday & Sunday at Morningside Park in Harlem. First, let me back up and tell you guys exactly what Harlem Eat up is. The festival is in its third installment this year as Harlem’s own Food Festival. Marcus and Herb Karlitz are the co-founders of this fantastic event. Harlem Eat Up is a celebration of everything Harlem. The 4-day festival showcases Harlem’s rich culture, art, and growing culinary scene.
