Countdown to the New York City Wine and Food Festival

By: Sarah De Heer

In just three short weeks, New York City will host culinary legends from around the country at the fourth annual New York City Wine and Food Festival. This year's festival welcomes chefs and culinary personalities from Food Network, including: Giada De Laurentiis, Sandra Lee, Duff Goldman, Paula Deen, Guy Fieri, Bobby Flay, Anne Burrell, Tyler Florence and Masaharu Morimoto.

In preparation for the festival, we're featuring upcoming events that we're excited about -- better hurry, tickets are going fast.

Back for a second year, Andrew Zimmern will host Carts in the Parc, a celebration of the food trucks and carts that define all that is of-the-moment in a great culinary city like New York. An outdoor space will house more than a dozen food trucks, including Kelvin Natural Slush, Schnitzel & Things, Souvlaki Truck and The Milk Truck. On the main stage, a live band will keep guests in the rhythm as they sample bites from truck to truck. Featured trucks and ticket information
