The festival brings together foodies from all over the world, including celebrity chefs Rachael Ray, Mario Batali, Guy Fieri, Emeril Lagasse, Giada De Laurentiis, and Bobby Flay. All proceeds from the fest go to Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength, two nonprofits working to end hunger.

Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival

Don your exclusive Festival Guest credentials and enjoy VIP early access—which means no waiting in lines—to an array of events. Rachael Ray hosts Burger Bash, where dozens of burgers from around the country duke it out for the title of Burger Bash King or Queen. Other events include Bobby Flay’s Tacos & Tequila and Sunday Slices, where you can sample pies from New York City’s top pizzerias. At Saturday’s Chef After Party, you’ll have a chance to chat with some of the festival’s culinary experts.

There will be two reserved seats at a Culinary Demo at the Grand Tasting of your choosing. At each one, a different celebrity chef demonstrates his or her talents on the main stage. Saturday’s lineup features Emeril Lagasse, Martha Stewart, and Iron Chef Morimoto, while Sunday’s lineup includes Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentiis, and Tyler Florence.

You’ll also meet Andrew Zimmern, a James Beard award-winning TV personality and the host of the Travel Channel’s “Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” series.

On Saturday, you’re invited to a VIP party called Jets + Chefs, co-hosted by NFL Hall of Famer Joe Namath and chef Mario Batali. The event features celebrity chefs offering their take on tailgate classics. You’ll watch grilling demonstrations and join a tailgating team, helmed by either former Top Chef contestant Spike Mendelsohn or Rocco DiSpirito, writer of the Now Eat This! series.

Upscale Hotel Accommodations

After wining and dining your way through the fest each day, retire to the Hudson New York, a stylish 4-star hotel located in midtown Manhattan. It’s walking distance from Central Park and the theater district.
