In the fourth episode, you’ll learn about cooking with items from your pantry by making olive oil brownie cookies with Jake Cohen of feedfeed. The ingredients you’ll need for these cookies are 70-percent dark chocolate, olive oil, flour, cocoa powder, kosher salt, baking powder, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla extract, eggs, chocolate chips, and flaky sea salt.
The Feeding NYC series was created to help raise awareness of the city’s Get Food NYC, the COVID-19 Emergency Food Distribution program, which is working to ensure all New Yorkers have access to the food they need.
“So many people are suffering right now because of COVID-19 but no New Yorker should go hungry because of this crisis,” Perelman says in her episode. “We know this is a really unusual time and we know that a lot of people are going through really difficult circumstances at the moment. If you need food assistance, please know that New York City will help,” she goes on to say.
