New York City Wine and Food Festival
New York is a great city for foodies.
When my husband John and I did our food, wine and travel show Local Flavor, we had the chance to eat in great restaurants all over the world. Of course, I am perhaps a little biased having worked in top New York restaurants for years, but with so many datapoints (and calories) from great foodie cities, I can say New York is still one of the world’s greatest restaurant and wine cities.
Aside from the amazing restaurants, world-class chefs and sommeliers, and fantastic wine bars, New York has one of the top Food and Wine Festivals, the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival—and I’m on my way there this coming week!
I’ll be hosting the Top Taster blind wine challenge, presented by my partner Delta Air Lines and co-hosted my fellow Master Sommeliers Laura Maniec, Laura Williamson and John Ragan. At that event you get a backstage pass to the mysteries of blind tasting done the Master Sommelier way, a tasting of 6 great wines, and the chance to win round-trip tickets on Delta (whether you “win” the blind wine challenge or not:).
I’m also co-hosting “Date Night Food and Wine Pairings,” a delicious pairing seminar with Chef Carmen Quagliata of Union Square Café— a classic, and New York’s most beloved restaurant, to be sure. On the subject of New York classics, check out this video on CraftSteak, and their unique approach to a classic New York Steak.
I hope you too will have a chance to enjoy the New York Wine and Food Festival. Please stop by the Delta Air Lines lounge at the Grand Tasting, where I’ll be presenting some complimentary pairing seminars—wine, chocolate and cheese, anyone? See you there!
