SobeSavvy.com Presents: The People, Plates, and Pours of @NYCWFF 2015 ! Grand Tasting Recap #NYCWFF #NoKidHungry

image

On Saturday October 17, 2015 SobeSavvy.com joined thousands of food-lovers to EAT. DRINK. END HUNGER at NYCWFF‘s signature Grand Tasting event ! The Grand Tasting presented by ShopRite featuring Samsung Home Appliance USA Culinary Demonstrations presented by MasterCard is a 130,000-square-foot culinary wonderland that everyone MUST experience in a lifetime !image

Attendees met the greatest food stars in the country, sampled food from local NYC restaurants representing cuisines from around the world, and tasted the most sought-after wines and spirits alongside up-and-coming labels from the Southern Wine & Spirits of New York portfolio and take part in exciting interactive experiences with various brands and foodie products. 100% of the net proceeds from NYCWFF go to Food Bank For New York City and No Kid Hungry

Known as the Best Food & Wine Festival in America, my goal was to capture all the foodie fun and priceless moments! Speaking of Priceless, Mastercard cardholders got exclusive access perks at the festival, such as skipping the lines, getting into private events, reserved seating and a chance to mingle with the chefs. Learn more at http://www.priceless.com/image

The Grand Tasting was from 12:00pm -6:00 pm , so we had to pace ourselves. Although the Pier 94 venue was crowded, it never felt cramped. We were prepared to spend some time with our favorite culinary stars and people from around the world. One amazing moment was my introduction to Korean traditional royal cuisine. I had the opportunity to learn about Hansik (Korean Food) presented by the Korean Food Foundation and picked up some recipes that I cannot wait to try this at home!
