Community Happy Hour:
Marissa Lippert, Nourish

Join Pioneer Works staff, artists-in-residence, and friends at Supersmith for happy hour. Each event spotlights a local chef or culinary organization. This month’s Happy Hour features Nourish with music by Jan Bell & the Maybelles.

Nourish’s Happy Hour menu of free small bites includes pastured-raised beef hot dog bites (vegan carrot dogs also available) with roasted tomato sambal and house-made pickles; grilled free-range chicken wings with bumbu spice; a charred nectarine, corn, and sungold tomato summer salad with a Thai basil, buttermilk-kaffir lime dressing; and a purple potato salad with a scallion, jalapeno, and caper vinaigrette

Marissa Lippert is the chef/owner of Nourish, a small private events and catering company founded on the core ethos of intentional eating, and cooking what the seasons and our locality provide us. She also formerly owned the beloved West Village all-day café Nourish Kitchen + Table that closed its doors in 2018.

Nourish focuses on beautiful, inherently healthful food that supports a broader community of farmers, purveyors, and artisans. Marissa’s food is rooted in globally-inspired flavors and a fresh, modern take on ingredients at the peak of their season. With her previous background as a nationally-recognized nutritionist, Marissa began Nourish with the goal of reimagining fresh food that is both delicious and simply makes you feel really good. Storytelling, experiences and building relationships through food is at Marissa’s and Nourish’s core. Marissa and Nourish have been featured in various international publications and have shared food with a variety of clients, brands, communities, and, most recently, had the distinct honor of cooking at the James Beard Foundation.

Jan Bell & The Maybelles is a three-part harmony, guitar, violin, and upright bass band playing original Americana and rare gems by Jean Ritchie, Loretta Lynn, and Hazel and Alice. Their album Dream of the Miner’s Child, which was dedicated to Bell’s grandfather, was an Independent Music Awards nominee for Best Concept Album. Their 2019 album Goodbye to the River features telling songs about living and working along the once derelict Brooklyn waterfront in an amplified chapter of sweeping gentrification.

Community programs at Pioneer Works are made possible in part through the generous support of the Steven & Alexandra Cohen Foundation.
