The second annual Food Network New York City Wine and Food Festival is in full swing this weekend, in various locations around the city.
This event brings together both legendary culinary icons from around the world, and America’s most beloved television chefs. The festival is hosted by, and benefits hunger relief organizations The Food Bank of New York, and Share Our Strength.
Centered primarily in the Meatpacking District of New York, and the famed Chelsea Market, there are workshops for adults and kids, as well as guest chef appearances, restaurant events, and an outdoor farmer’s market.
Come out and taste great food and wine, meet celebrity chefs such as Martha Stewart, Rachel Ray, Paula Deen and Tom Colicchio, take a kid’s cooking class, and help end hunger. It’s a foodie paradise!!
The event runs from October 8-11.
