Event Alert: NYC Wine & Food Festival – NOW!

October 17, 2014 By: Serena Category: Events

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!

Happy (almost) Hump Day, Noshers! I’m definitely thankful for a shortened work week.  What did you do this past Labor Day weekend?  I cooked up a storm, including a huge batch of quinoa (I didn’t know it expanded that much – oops), and I’m definitely enjoying the fruits of that labor this week!

Today, I’m excited to share with you a fun and delicious event that I recently attended – Dinner With Luca, hosted by Grana Padano and MasterChef Season 4 winner Luca Manfé!  I’ve said this multiple times before – if I had to eat only one food for the rest of my life, it would be cheese. I just loooove cheese! So I was super excited to atttend this event, where we learned all about Grana Padano cheese and its three distinct ages: (more…)
