The Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival

Check this out! One of the largest cultural events of the year, The Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine magazine, will be in New York from October 9-12th, 2008. It will take place in selected area such as the Meatpacking district and DUMBO area of Brooklyn. This festival will bring together many legendary culinary icons from all over the world and featuring many celebrity chefs including Bobby Flay, Alton Brown, Rachael Ray, Gordon Ramsey, Giada De Laurentiis, and many more.

There will be many types of events from wine seminars, demonstration from celebrity chefs, kids event, food and cultural tours, and even parties. The events can range from $10-$300 but some are free so hurry sign up fast! I'm disappointed because the events I wanted to go to is already sold out sigh* And the best thing about this festival is that 100 percent of the proceeds raised will go directly to hunger relief programs such as the Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength.

This festival also features the Meatpacking Eats, it's like restaurant week but will offer the "Meatpacking Eats Menu":
