NYWFF: Afternoon with Next Food Network Stars

By: Kirsten Vala

The New York Wine and Food Festival brought Melissa d'Arabian and Aarti Sequeira, the two newest Next Food Network Star winners, together for an afternoon of cooking demos.

Melissa made fish stew with halibut (see her halibut skewer recipe). Arti talked about dal, a traditional Indian dish – see her recipe.
