NYC Wine & Food Festival 2009 Kicks Off…

NYC Wine and Food Festival

Tonight kicks off the NYC Wine and Food Festival with Chelsea Market After Dark taking place at Food Network headquarters. Food Fashionista is thrilled to be attending this food & beverage filled weekend in one of our favorite cities that never sleeps…NYC!

Presented by Food & Wine and Travel + Leisure Magazines, tonight's kick off opening event will be hosted by festival founder and director Lee Schrager along with Food Network personalities Guy Fieri (Diners, Drive Inns and Dives)and Sandra Lee (Sandra's Money Saving Meals).

All of the proceeds from this weekend's Festival will benefit hunger relief organizations Share our Strength  and Food Bank for New York City, making this culinary weekend a celebration for a great cause. Last  year's event raised over 1 million dollars to help ensure no child goes hungry.

Along with all your favorite Food Network stars, the Festival will have appearances from many of the biggest names in the industry including Daniel Boulud, Alain Ducasse, Jean-George Vogerichten, Jacques Torres, and Anthony Bourdain. There will also be wine and spirit seminars hosted by the best sommeliers and mixologists in the business including Andrea Robinson, Kevin Zraly, Tony Abou-Ganim and Josh Wesson.

Food Fashionista will have future posts with exclusive photos/details from this year's Festival, but in the mean time, follow our up to the minute NYC Wine and Food Festival Tweets on FOOD FASHIONISTA's TWITTER.
