Do This!: This Year’s Food Network New York Wine & Food Festival

Does the thought of stirring things up with the likes of Giada de Laurentiis, Marcus Samuelsson or David Bouley get you excited? How about the potential for a attending an Asian/Dumpling seminar with Anito Lo or a Master Sushi Rolling class with Morimoto? I personally am looking forward to the Tacos & Tequila event with Bobby Flay. What I’m referring to is just a taste of the big foodie names and events that make up Food Network’s annual Wine & Food Festival. The weekend is jam packed with 120 day and nighttime events, seminars, demos, book signings and dinners with up close access and to some of the biggest culinary names and their tasty creations. The best part about it all {besides this being foodie heaven} is that 100% of net proceeds go directly to Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength, two community-based organizations focused on helping to fight hunger — allowing us to literally put our money where our mouth is. Last year’s event raised more than $1.2 million for these organizations.

This year’s long line-up of scrumptious samplings and celebrity sightings is scheduled for September 29-October 2, 2011. And with tickets still available, you have not missed out on the opportunity to take a bite out of the Big Apple’s biggest food event of the year — so get cookin’! Here’s a sneak peak at just a few tastings, but see the link below for the full line-up.

Oyster Bash: Want to know if Oysters really are an aphrodisiac? Join Ted Allen and the likes of April BloomfieldMichael Psilakis and other seafood masters at The Standard for an oyster, beer and bubbly bash!

Sake Soiree: Wash those Oysters down with several sips of Sake as you learn about Japan’s signature drink, how to create Sake cocktails and perfect Sake food pairings at the sleek Buddakan.
