What You Missed at the 2014 Wine and Food Festival

If you missed the 2014 installment of NYC’s Wine and Food Festival, you missed out on some great festivities. There was some incredible offerings on show, and here were some of the highlights as personally chosen by myself and Keith Mann:

  1. So Much Pizza

The first major part of the event was a rooftop pizza tasting, that featured some of the best pizza slices from the best joints around the city. Including Don Antonio, Emily’s, and Rubirosa’s. Including some really great and creative pizzas. I remember a distinct flavor with honey, pistachios and truffles.

  1. Blue Moon Burger Bash

Do you even need a reason to go to a burger bash? There were some absolutely incredible burgers here, including the standout from Perla.

  1. Brooklyn’s Best Desert Party at the Maritime Hotel.

Of course, rounding out the festival was a selection of NYC’s best deserts, from some of the greatest bakeries in the city. Some brilliant Ample Hills ice cream, and Dough provided tons of different styles of amazing doughnuts. Brilliant.

The NYC Food and Film Festival is Right Around The Corner

Food and culture fans unite, the NYC Food and Film Festival is only a few days away. Beginning on October 29th, and running through November 2nd, this is the 7th installment of the now annual engagement.

Having started back in 2007, the festival is a tribute to new and groundbreaking films, as well as brilliant food from all over the world. The perfect opportunity to take in both, so that you can go on the ultimate dinner and a movie date.

So be prepared to eat Brian Torchin, because we definitely need to go to this. I’m looking forward to trying some exquisite master chef prepared dishes. Always learn something new,and get great ideas for recipes that I want to try at home.
