It’s a controversial opinion, but I’m kind of meh on the apple-picking craze that seems to sweep the city around this time of year. I love getting out of the city in the fall as much as the next girl, but I find that a day spent in one of those overpriced, over-commodified apple-picking farms crawling with people is always vaguely disappointing, plus I always end up with a jar of apple butter that I’ll never eat. I’m exaggerating, but honestly the notion of having someone else do the hard work of getting the apple bounty to me sounds pretty good this year, so I’m going to stick to the farmers’ market and probably check out the Cidermakers’ Dinner happening at the Farm on Adderley on Wednesday night. Melissa Madden of Good Farm Life’s Kite & String Cidery is teaming up with the chefs at Ditmas Park’s farm-to-table institution to bring you a three-course prix-fixe meal with cider pairings and cocktails, which seems like a great way to get your apple fix without leaving battling the New York State Thruway. It’s just $65, which is a great deal for a full dinner and drinks, and space is limited, so reserve a spot by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
