DIY pasta sauce cook-off with A1 Labs

Next Monday evening (Nov 15), Alpha One Labs, the community hackerspace in Brooklyn, is hosting a DIY pasta sauce cook-off and blind taste test! Canned tomatoes will be competing against standard vine tomatoes from local grocers (and possibly San Marzano tomatoes for the ultimate palatial experience!) against pre-made jarred pasta sauces. Bring your own tomatoes, window-farmed herbs, and veggies to make your own sauce, or just taste test. It’s a “food hack” event, so expect multiple hot-plates running straight from the fuse box! The event is free and everyone will receive a belly full of spaghetti at the end.
