The Food Book Fair returns to Williamsburg this weekend with authors, chefs, publishers, designers and, of course, lots of food books. The opening's tonight and will feature a "tasting event" fundraiser at the Brooklyn Winery (213 North 8th Street, Brooklyn), with proceeds going to continued Sandy relief efforts on behalf of the Far Rockaways. Over the weekend, there's a full schedule of panels, demos and Q&As on food-related topics, mostly held in the Wythe Hotel (80 Wythe Avenue, Brooklyn). Some events that caught our eye: "Food + Tech," "Cookbooks + Art" and a panel on pop-up restaurants and underground supper clubs. Plus there's a zine-fest featuring over 20 cool food publications aka "Foodieodicals" happening on Saturday afternoon from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. (Many of these foodieodicals, by the way, were featured in this month's issue of PAPER. Read about them HERE.) The fair is open to the public on Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. More details and tickets to the panels etc. are HERE.
