This past Friday marked five years of the NYC Wine & Food Festival, which has raised over 5 million dollars to end childhood hunger! I am always so happy to participate in the festival and support a cause so near and dear to my heart.
SWEET! the walk-around dessert tasting I hosted on Friday night had over 1,600 attendees. It goes without saying that when there are tons of cocktail creations and sweet sensations the event is bound to sell out! Kathy Griffin, Debi Mazar, Gabriele Corcos, Ted Allen, Kari Keegan, Bobby Flay, Alex Karpovsky, and Alex Guarnaschelli were all in attendance to join me as we championed for this cause. The sweets and treats of Billy’s Bakery, the Big Gay Ice Cream Trucks and many more, were all fabulous! Checkout the picture of SWEET! above.
If you were unable to attend the festival you still have one of my favorite holidays, Halloween, to look forward to. This week I will be sharing tons of creepy, crawly finger foods, desserts and cocktails, so that you have a spooktacular Halloween celebration to enchant all your guests.
Cheers to a happy, healthy home.
