The New York City Wine and Food Festival

Last Friday evening, I had a really fun experience and took part in the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival.   This is the only festival in New York which brings together both legendary culinary icons from around the globe and America's most beloved television chefs.  And now in its second year, the festival is already one of the most important food events in the country.  Much more than a celebration of fine wine and delicious food, the festival is also a campaign to help those in need.  All proceeds benefit the Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength, two terrific organizations dedicated to fighting hunger in this great city.  Last year, the 2008 Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival raised over one million dollars for these two important charities.  I was very proud to be a part of this wonderful cause.
