The Food Network's epicurean fete is back for its sixth edition. Wildly popular signature events include a Burger Bash with Rachael Ray, and “Tacos & Tequila,” hosted by Bobby Flay. Also on the roster are spankin'-new events including a Jets + Chefs tailgate hosted by Mario Batali and hall-of-famer Joe Namath, featuring game-day cooking demonstrations by Rocco DiSpirito and Andrew Zimmern, and meet-and-greets with former NFLers Bruce Harper, Marty Lyons and Wesley Walker. Tickets are currently on sale, but big-name events—including the Burger Bash, Masaharu Morimoto's "Rockin' Dumplings and Rollin' Sushi" and Dale Talde's dim sum party at Buddakan—tend to sell out quickly, so snag one while you can. Proceeds will go to Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
