GET UPDATES FROM Clara Schuhmacher
Clara is an artist, writer and producer based in Brooklyn, NY. She was born in Italy to Argentinean parents, and owes much of her love of food to this happy coincidence. She first learned to cook sitting on a stool in her abuela’s cool stone kitchen on Calle Tejeda in Córdoba, and from there it was a short step to writing, curating and hosting esoteric dinner parties. She blogs about her (food) adventures in Brooklyn and beyond at ¡dpm! does, profiles mom'n'pop markets in the five boroughs for Serious Eats, and creates multimedia stories about urban farming and cooking-by-color for Organic Gardening. By day, she's Director of Operations for Make Music New York, and makes time-based art with her collective vvitalny. Say hi at @yclaraquesi.

Strolling through the Holiday Market in Union Square, with its soft light and scent of cinnamon, always takes me back to winter visits to Bavaria and many a cold evening spent at the christkindlesmarkts of Munich and Nuremberg. The memory is bright: cozy with...

Thanksgiving's about as American a holiday as they come -- if only because we all can participate -- and it's wonderful. And the best part is that at heart, it's a deeply personal thing: a celebration of a time and a place, of a season and its bounty, of a...
