NYC Wine & Food Festival 2009 Pics


View from the Standard Hotel – Breathtaking!

Back from New York after an incredible time at the 2009 Food Network Wine and Food Festival. This event was incredibly special because it was held in one of my favorite cities in the world, attended by lots of incredibly talented friends and folks in the culinary/wine industries, and last but definitely not least, it was all for a wonderful cause with proceeds going towards Share our Strength and the Food Bank of New York City. 

As usual, I have so many details and photos to share with all of you, but for now I will share a few of my favorites.
