Upcoming Event: New York Taste 2014! – November 10

November 05, 2014 By: Serena Category: Events

Just one of the delicious noms from last year’s event

 Happy Wednesday, Noshers!  Today I’m sharing the details of one of my FAVORITE food events of the year – New York Taste!  This fine food festival is taking place next Monday, November 10th, and I’m ecstatic to be attending for the fourth time.  Now in its 16th year, New York Taste 2014 will feature chefs from over 40 of NYC’s hottest restaurants. Some of the chefs I absolutely must visit this year are David Bouley, Paul Liebrandt, Chef Morimoto, and my personal event fave – Marcus Samuelsson! One of the best things of this event (besides the food) is that the chefs are all available and eager to chat. So much fun!

Proceeds from the event go to City Harvest – do you really need another reason to eat for a good cause?? I always walk (or roll) out of this event completely stuffed, so if you’ve been waiting and waiting to buy tickets for this – DO IT!

General admission tickets are on sale now, or you can get a VIP ticket and let me know what’s in that gift bag ;).

I really hope to see you there!

Check out the chef line-up – who would you most like to chat up?

Happy Tuesday, Noshers – hope you had a boo-tastic Halloween!  Today, I’m happy to share a few photos the 2014 New York City Wine & Food Festival, when I attended the Grand Tasting.  This was my third time attending the Grand Tasting, and each year it gets better.  Once again there were a TON of booths from various food and beverage companies, kitchen equipment companies, and delicious restaurants.  Add to that dozens of demonstrations by top chef-lebrities (is Andrew Zimmern or Martha Stewart more your style?), book signings, and samples samples samples, and this proved to be yet another delicious and exciting afternoon.   Here are just a few highlights from this delectable day!

Local vendors from New York state made a good showing: (more…)

Event Alert: NYC Wine & Food Festival – NOW!

I’ll be doing my thing this year again at the NYC Wine & Food Festival!

Happy FRIDAY, Noshers! It is looking absolutely gorgeous out today here in NYC! What plans do you have for the weekend? I have a pretty fun weekend planned – due in a big part to the New York City Wine & Food Festival, taking place RIGHT THIS MINUTE!!!

This is the seventh year of the NYCWFF, and once again the schedule looks amazing!!  The festival features restauranteurs from around the world, legendary chefs, and a smorgasbord of TV chef-lebrities.  All of the proceeds from the four-day event benefit the Food Bank for NYC and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.  There are a kerbillion (give or take a few) events packed into the four days of the festival, and you can buy tickets for individual events.  This year, you can find me at the Grand Tasting.  I’ve attended the Grand Tasting in 2013 and 2011, and it is a ton of fun!

While the ticket prices vary pretty widely, there is a pretty extensive list of events at $100 and under.  So check out the events, pick up a few tickets, and definitely stop me and say hello if you see me! :)

Happy Monday, Noshers!  I’m doing everything I can to combat this no-longer-summer weather with some mouth-watering recaps!  Today, I’m super excited to share some pictures from  Project by Project NY‘s Plate by Plate Annual Tasting Event that I attended recently.  Tables and tables of food galore, a cool DJ, a good-looking crowd, and lil’ ol’ me!  As I mentioned previously, the proceeds of this event went to benefit the Asian Bi-Cultural Mental Health Services at Henry Street Settlement.

I stuffed myself silly, took awkward selfies in the photobooth, and snapped pics to share with you – so without further ado, let’s get to it!

I HAD to start with dessert first, especially when this cutest little snow cloud ever was beckoning me: (more…)

Fun Fact Friday

french-cheese-board-1Happy FRIDAY, Noshers!  We made it through another week!  The weather here in NYC has definitely take on a bit of a chill; it’s no longer summer anymore :(.  What fun plans do you have in store?

Today’s Fun Fact has to do with my favorite food – cheese.  I stopped by the French Cheese Board last night (a really fun space!) – for today and tomorrow only, The Cheese of Europe is hosting a pop-up shop there, where you can sample French cheeses, butter, and other delicious goodies and purchase some of your own at wholesale prices!  Seriously good deals – I thought they were misprints.

Eating cheese and taking some home for more eating – that’s pretty fun, right? ;)

Have a great weekend!
