The only thing we like more than dining in New York is spending four whole days eating our way around the world! The 2014 Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival is a 130,000-square-foot cuisine utopia jam-packed with all kinds of events from tastings, classes, parties, workshops, and one of our favorite things to do in NYC - brunch. Not only will this festival get your mouth drooling and belly stuffed, the NYCWFF raises funds annually for the hunger-relief programs Share Our Strength's No Kid Hungry campaign and Food Bank For New York City, having donated more than $7.5 million to date.
There are more than 100 events happening for every budget over the four days of the festival. Remember the infamous Cronut? Its creator, Dominique Ansel, will host a brand-new event rightly dubbed Dominique Ansel's Wonderland. Even football fans can rejoice as NFL Hall of Famer Joe Namath and avid Jets fan Mario Batali put on a family-friendly tailgate party where you can rub shoulders with Jets players past and present. Grab a taco and tequila on Saturday night and meet one of Food Network's biggest names, Bobby Flay. Plus there are plenty of vegan- and vegetarian-friendly experiences, including the Fresh & Raw Vegan Dinner hosted by Matthew Kenney, Daphne Cheng and Tyler Kord at the Park Lane Hotel.
Get your empty stomach over to Piers 92 and 94 from October 16-19 for the 2014 NYCWFF and start eating. Click on the guide below for all the delicious upcoming events. Bon Appétit!
