    #SUMOSTEW is back and bigger than ever!
    Get ready for our outdoor summer special!

    Tuesday, July 17th, 6-9PM @ Arrogant Swine (173 Morgan Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11206)

    Inspired by a trip to Japan, photographer Michael Harlan Turkell (harlanturk.com) returned to New York City with aspirations of importing this ancient sport and teamed up with Harry Rosenblum, owner of The Brooklyn Kitchen (thebrooklynkitchen.com), a center for culinary education. The two created a series based around plentiful bowls of chankonabe, the “sumo stew” wrestlers prepare and eat before matches. The hearty broth is loaded with fortifying protein and vegetables. This, paired with the live streamed bimonthly grand tournaments, makes for a lively event, bringing hungry first time and long-standing sumo fans ringside.

    This round of SUMO STEW will feature a North Carolina BBQ-style Whole Hog chankonabe in collaboration with Tyson Ho of Arrogant Swine, arrogantswine.com.

    Every guest will also get a special bento box, composed of Japanese-inspired dishes from top local chefs, including (subject to change):

    Spicy Beef Shank & Yuba Salad from Junzi, junzi.kitchen

    *Yuba: A Kyoto delicacy, fresh yuba is rare even in Asia. Nutty, sweet and with a distinctive bite that is firm yet chewy, yuba is the thin veil that forms on the surface of heated soymilk as the cream and protein rise to the surface. Sometimes known as tofu skin, these greatly prized sheets are harvested by hand, and Hodo is the only organic, fresh yuba maker in the United States.
