This year's New York City Wine and Food Festival was nothing short of amazing!!! We went on a HUGE taste adventure in the four shorts days... Visiting Mo Rocca's 'Hot Dog Happy Hour', Chef Morimoto's 'Rock n' Roll Night Market', the Grand Tasting, and we ended it with Trisha Yearwood's 'Down Home Country Brunch'. Each event was equally special and tasty! Here are a few photos to recap this years taste-downs:
THE GRAND TASTING
The Celebrity Chef's were all over the place at the Grand Tasting. Real Food Real Kitchens even got in on a little of the action with a small feature on the Extended Stay America 'Away From Home Cooking' recipe winner Lauren Wyler.
CHEF MORIMOTO'S ROCK n' ROLL NIGHT MARKET
Chef Morimoto's event the 'Rock n Roll Night Market' was as filled with energy as the man himself. There were delicious offerings all over the place featuring not just foods with Asian flare but fusions of all types. High energy, amazing food = a rock n' roll night.
DOWN HOME COUNTRY BRUNCH WITH TRISHA YEARWOOD
I think I may have fallen in love with Trisha Yearwood just a lil' bit at her 'Down Home Country Brunch'. I'm not sure if it was the amazing and sweet food, the spot on coffee beverages from Illy, or the sheer emotion that rang out of her voice that morning, but it was something special indeed.
MO ROCCA'S HOT DOG HAPPY HOUR
Hot Dogs, one of America's quintessential foods. The best part of this happy hour was that no hot dog was the same. The fusion of flavors and toppings on these dogs were the perfect way to ease in to the barrage of flavorful foods that were coming throughout the weekend.
"I like a meal you can eat on the run," Mo Rocca.
