Rules & Regulations
Donated by: Nicholas Gill

On a weekday, you and a guest will explore the world of Latin food in New York City’s outer boroughs with food writer and photographer Nicholas Gill.

You’ll start with a tasting of exotic fruits and rare coffees​ from his private stash​ on Gill’s Brooklyn rooftop, before being driven from one street stall, market' or restaurant after another. You'll wind your way through Brooklyn, Queens, and the Bronx​,​ tasting​ things like mole in the South Bronx,​ Oaxacan tlyaudas​ and ​Chilean pastel de choclo​ in Corona​, ​Peruvian ceviche in Elmhurst, ​Brazilian feijoada​ in Astoria​, and Uruguayan chivitos​ in Williamsburg, among others​​.

Gill will give you his up-close and personal take on the culinary melting pot of New York City. As someone with his feet in two worlds – he splits his time between Brooklyn and Lima, Peru – Gill is perfectly positioned to share valuable insights on flavor, authenticity, tradition, and innovation in the food of the Americas. James Beard ​nominated ​and IACP ​winning writer and photographer Nicholas Gill explores the boundaries and possibilities of cuisine in the Americas, and sometimes other places too. He ​is the co-author of Central (Phaidon, 2016) with Peruvian chef Virgilio Martinez and co-founded a website dedicated to the food and places in the Americas, New Worlder.
