New York City Wine & Food Festival

By Larry Getlen

After the lull of summer and the slow ramp-up of September, October brings a wealth of awesome events to New York City, and one of my personal favorites is the New York City Wine & Food Festival, which combines star power and gastronomic creativity to create a foodie paradise.

Given that the Food Network is a major sponsor (others include Food & Wine Magazine and Travel and Leisure), the list of participating chefs is a who’s who of culinary stardom including Guy Fieri, Rachael Ray, Bobby Flay, Paula Deen, Giada De Laurentiis, and more.

But the appeal of the fest is not just who they have, but what they do with them. Some of the more inventive festival events include tonight’s Meatball Madness, with versions of the traditional Italian favorite from over twenty of New York’s finest chefs; tonight’s “Bacon and the Blues,” hosted by Todd English; Friday’s Blue Moon Burger Bash, where great chefs – led by Ray – offer their take on the burger; and Bobby Flay’s Tacos & Tequila on Saturday.

While many events are sold out, tickets for others remain. Find out what’s still available at the event’s web site.
