Created by the Food Network and presented by Capital One, the NYCWFF brings together New York City's most celebrated chefs, restaurants, mixologists, and wine experts for four unforgettable days of gourmet food, rare wines. You'll experience all that and more at the weekend Grand Tastings, along with live culinary demonstrations from some of your favorite Food Network chefs. Guests will delight in sumptuous bites as they move through the event, meeting chefs, getting cookbooks signed, and mingling with their fellow food lovers. On the beverage side, Southern Glazer is opening their vaults and pouring some of the most exclusive wines in their portfolio. Additionally, craft cocktails will be stirred and shaken by some of the industry's most innovative mixology minds.

What to expect at the NYCWFF Grand Tastings

When you need a break from the food and spirits, join the crowd to learn new cooking tips in real-time from some of the biggest stars on Food Network.

Sunday's lineup includes Rachel Ray, Ally Love, and Duff Goldman, among others. 

You can also stretch your legs as you stroll through a block-long midway of interactive exhibits and experiences custom-made for NYCWFF attendees from top food brands and culinary companies. And don't forget your swag bag because there will be plenty of goodies to take home with you.
