The New York Wine & Food Festival is a foodie’s dream come true. What began five years ago as a one-day event has grown into a weekend celebration to celebrate the culinary industry’s finest. The hosts of the Festival include the world’s greatest chefs, wine producers, spirits makers and Food Network personalities. With 120 different events to choose from, there is something delicious for every palate. Not only will attendees have the opportunity to indulge in a variety of food, but they will also be participating in the fight against hunger. The New York Wine & Food Festival has joined forces with Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength to induce hunger-relief. One hundred percent of the net proceeds will be donated to these foundations. The Festival weekend (Thursday, October 11 through Sunday, October 14, 2012 at various locations) will benefit the millions of hungry children, teens and adults. Bon appétit!
