WOWZER.... is it that time of the year already? Yeah, you know what I'm talking about. Foodies doing cart-wheels down the sidewalks, winos... I mean wine connoisseurs lip smacking their way through vintage tastings, and cocktalians at cocktail seminars staring into the bottom of their glass thinking "Where did it all go right?" THAT'S RIGHT... Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival is back for another year of fabulous chef's showing off their crazy culinary artistry, genius mixologist's creating cocktails worth salivating over, all in events and parties that take over the city for four tasty days.
The impressive line-up of events include favorites like Burger Bash, Meatball Madness and SWEET and with new events like The Best Thing I Ever Ate Between Bread hosted by Duff Goldman which should be the next best thing since sliced bread; or you can Rock Out with your Bowling ball out with Anne Burrell, where you'll eat like a Rock Star while bowling at Lucky Strike. Too cool! Of course there's also FRIED, yes FRIED. Where eveything you indulge in will be... you guessed it, FRIED! Don't be chicken, you know this event is for you because it's going to be HOT!
The Grand Tasting presented by ShopRite with KitchenAid Culinary Demonstrations presented by Buitoni will be an all day event on Saturday and Sunday. Expect the big tent to be even bigger with lots of food, drinks, and your favorite Food Network Chefs. On hand personalities smoking up the kitchen stage will be Sunny Anderson, Anthony Bourdain, Alton Brown, Jamie and Bobby Deen, Bobby Flay, Duff Goldman, Masaharu Morimoto, Michael Symon, Ming Tsai, Beekman Boys; and that's just a few to wet your palate.
Top it off by attending one of the many wine tastings and cocktail seminars where you'll do some pinky-up sipping to your taste buds content, socializing with fellow cocktalians getting smarter about the new trends conjured up by mixologist extraordinaires whom call their drinks libations.
So hurry and get your tickets to the events of you choice because they are selling out faster than you can say BAM! (sorry, couldn't resist)
