New York City Wine Food Festival 2022
It was a beautiful October day in New York City for the 15th annual New York Wine & Food Festival 2022 at Hudson River Park's Pier 76 where we indulged in their Grand Tasting and Culinary Demonstrations by Celebrity Chefs: Alex Guarnaschelli, Masaharu Morimoto, Buddy "The Cake Boss" Valastro, Carla Hall, Duff Goldman, Carlton McCoy & JJ Johnson, Marcus Samuelsson, and Rocco DiSpirito. We ate, we drank, and we were merry! Cheers!
