Recap: New York Taste 2013!

November 20, 2013 By: Serena Category: Events


NEW YORK TASTE!!! One of my favorite events to cover every year – with over 40 chefs from amazing NYC restaurants, the evening was a food-fan’s dream come true.  I was lucky enough to cover the 2013 event last week (my third time attending NY Taste!), and I’m super excited to share a recap with you.  Warning – tons of pictures ahead. You’re okay with that, right? I thought so.  Let’s get started!

As you can see below, I had a ton of eating ahead of me: (more…)

Recap: NYC Wine & Food Festival Weekend!

October 24, 2013 By: Serena Category: Events

Progresso_Artisan_NYCWFF-20I’m not a supermarket extraordinaire, I just play one on tv.

Not that I’m complaining, but I can’t believe it’s Thursday already – this week flew by for me! I’m still living off the excitement of attending the NYC Wine & Food Festival this past weekend (check out my Chicken Coupe recap from yesterday).  While I’m super exhausted and see a long weekend nap in my future, it was SO MUCH fun.  What made it the most fun of all was attending the festival as a Progresso Artisan Ambassador as well as courtesy of Buick!  I had some great chef celebrity sightings, met some truly fabulous fellow Ambassador/bloggers (hello Food And the City, Beauty and the Feast, Nutmeg Nanny, and NYC Talon!), and made some silly faces for random giveaways.  While I might not have won a trip to Napa, I ate a ton – so almost even Stevens…right?  For a few highlights, keep reading… (more…)

Re-Cap: NYC Wine & Food Festival: Time Warner Cable’s Chicken Coupe with Whoopi Goldberg & John Legend!

Phew! But can I make the title of this post any longer, that’s the real question.

Whoopi_Goldberg_John_Legend-4PB&J drumsticks?? Yes, please.

Happy Hump Day, Noshers! Today I’m super excited to share my re-cap of the New York City Wine & Food Festival event I attended last Friday – the Chicken Coupe presented by Time Warner Cable!  This delicious event was hosted by Whoopi Goldberg and featured a private (and I later learned from attendees – surprise) performance by JOHN LEGEND!  The event featured drumsticks upon wings of friiied chicken, plus tons of dessert dishes, non-chicken sides and a free-flow of beverages.  In addition to PB&J wings and talking chicken with Whoopi, I admit one of the high points of the evening was being right near the stage during John’s performance and actually having to lean back to take a photo. Is this real life??

For some highlights, including my Whoopi and John sightings, keep reading. (more…)

Happy Tuesday, Noshers!  As I’ve mentioned a few times, food event season is in full swing!  Okay, I don’t know if food event season is actually a “thing” – can someone enlighten me? But I do know that every year from September through pretty much the end of the year, things get preeeetty busy for the Big Apple Nosh blog.  Here is a round-up of a few upcoming events that I’ve attended in the past that I’d recommend!  I’m not confirmed to be attending all of these events this year yet, but I hope to be soon :)
