We’ve come a long way since “Mamma mia, that’s a spicy meatball.” On June 21, the Museum of Food and Drink in Brooklyn will host “Sourcing and Creating the Meatball Shop,” a discussion and tasting with executive chef Daniel Sharp of the Meatball Shop Group. Cofounded by childhood best friends Daniel Holzman and Michael Chernow downtown in 2010, there are now six city locations for the eatery, which allows diners to create their own bowls or hero sandwiches, choosing among such balls as classic, pork, chicken, veggie, and special and such sauces as tomato, spicy meat, parmesan cream, pesto, and mushroom gravy. The restaurant also serves salads, pasta, ice-cream sandwiches, and banana splits. California native Sharp will discuss with moderator Emily Pearson of Heritage Foods his business model, the concept of nose-to-tail eating, and how he sources his ingredients and comes up with his recipes; the talk will be followed by a cooking demonstration and tasting.
