New York City Wine & Food Festival - 2021

On Saturday, October 16, 2021, we experienced the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival's Farmer's Market Brunch hosted by Chef Geoffrey Zakarian at The Standard High Line Biergarten. It was a delicious morning of grazing at the various restaurants' tables, and sipping coffee, cocktails, hard seltzer, and wine. It was the perfect autumn celebration with farm-to-table offerings from different farms creatively served by the chefs. The Brunch also provided guests with the opportunity to speak with the chefs and learn more about the products.

The Chefs and Food Tastings

Chef Jean-Paul Lourdes of The Standard Grill (848 Washington Street, New York City) presented Slow-Roasted Carrots with cultured cream and burnt citrus. Although delectably delicious, this was a "not to be attempted at home" as chef explained that the carrots were cooked on their 1,000-degree Fahrenheit grill. The carrots had a rich caramelization from the high heat that paired well with the cultured cream and burnt citrus.

The most innovative technique of the day went to Chef Dale Talde of the restaurant Goosefeather (49 E. Sunnyside Lane, Tarrytown, New York), who used a steam iron and a griddle to create Grilled Cheese with Roasted Squash and Apple sandwiches. Using a steam iron on top of the bread is definitely another technique "not to be tried at home" at least not with a good iron.
