Debra Argen and Edward Nesta - New York Culinary Experience 2016 - photo by Luxury ExperienceFor culinary enthusiasts as well as professional chefs, the New York Culinary Experience (NYCE) 2016 hosted by New York magazine and The International Culinary Center) was once again a memorable weekend of baking, cooking, and celebrating with top industry professionals. Over the course of 2 days during the New York Culinary Experience 2016 we took bread classes, culinary classes, had chocolate and cocktail demos, and took a dessert class with top industry professionals where we learned professional techniques, tips, and delicious recipes.
