Some say lucky in love…I agree…love of all things food and the wonderful experiences surrounding cooking and tasting. I’m also lucky to be heading to The New York City Wine + Food Festival! However, this isn’t a feat I can do alone, so I’m dragging a buddy with me. We are heading north in search of some of the best amuse-bouche (for those of you that don’t watch Top Chef, it’s a single wonderful bite intended to stir the taste buds and whet the appetite), sips and signatures (yes celebrity John Hancock’s, I’m in hot pursuit of Martha Stewart’s).
We will take a bite out of the Big Apple for some tasty fun, news and happenings from the only festival in New York City to bring together legendary culinary icons from around the globe and America’s most beloved television chefs. The 2nd annual New York City Wine + Food Festival is happening this very weekend and will feature celebrity chef cooking demonstrations; wine tastings; interviews; and other epicurean delights. And we get to go!!
We’re packing our handy Brookshire’s reusable shopping bags and heading to the trendy Meatpacking District and other well-known landmark settings for the festival. I hope Bobby Flay, Martha Stewart, Rachael Ray, Mario Batali, Paula Deen, Giada De Laurentiis, Anthony Bourdain among many others, are ready for us!
Yes, even on vacation I think about food… after all, I am in the grocery business. Follow us on our foodventure!
