Upcoming Events At Court Tree Collective In Carroll Gardens

Court Tree, the small gallery and event space on the second floor at 371 Court Street continues to host a series of wonderful culinary classes as well as some very interesting art exhibits. Below are three events in June that you may not want to miss.
On June 16, take a Saké Pairing Workshop. It is the first in a series specifically on saké lead by Hannah Kirshner of Sweets & Bitters.  The workshop costs $75.

These days, we know that you can drink red wine with a burger or pair champagne and pizza, but when it comes to sake most people still play it safe and serve it only with Japanese food. In this workshop, we’ll taste six kinds of sake along with snacks to match each. We’ll explore how to pair with flavors or ingredients (not only Japanese ones) not just specific dishes. It’s a great intro to the complex world of sake styles, and an opportunity to expand your palate if you’re already an an aficionado. The best way to learn is by tasting! Hannah Kirshner of Sweets & Bitters will lead each workshop in collaboration with a sake expert (read about her apprenticeship at a sake bar in Japan here). The first workshop, on June 16th, will be with Joto Sake.

The class includes:
-Tasting 6 kinds of sake with food pairings
-Learning what flavors and ingredients pair with each style
-Experimenting with creating your own pairings
-Getting an introduction to sake styles and labeling

 Register here.

On June 30th, from 8-9:30 pm, join local filmmaker Mark Street for "A Train Ride Can Be A Tracking Shot", a live performance with film, video, smoke, mirrors.
The material for the film was shot in far flung locales from Florida to Berlin presented on 16mm and digital video.

Bos Taurus, featuring the works of Arsenio Pandolfo, is currently on exhibit at Court Tree through June 30th. 
Pandolfo was born in Sant'Arsenio Italy, where he currently resides and works. He studied law at the university Federico ll in Naples. Pandolfo is an autodidact who has found that with his camera he can unveil truths that are missed by our daily visual experience and share them.
The exhibit  is a collaboration of Court Tree with BACAS (Borghi Antichi Cultura Arti Scienze).
The exhibition, the accompanying publication and text are curated by Pietro Costa, founding director of BACAS. This is the first event presented by BACAS, a foundation dedicated to interdisciplinary and multicultural gatherings throughout Southern Italian peninsula.
