Get ready to entice your taste buds at the New York City Wine and Food Festival where culinary legends, renowned chefs, vintners, mixologists and gluttons come together to eat, drink and put an end to world hunger.

The event spanning across four days was first held in 2007 as a single night event called SWEET. The next year the director and founder of the festival Lee Brian Schrager decided to take the event a notch higher transforming the one day event into what today is known as the New York City Wine and Food Festival. Today, it is acknowledged amongst the most successful food festivals across the globe.

The fest also provides an opportunity for the dedicated gourmets to discover more about their passion for food and wine in a number of workshops and seminars. The master herself Martha Stewart will offer her expertise on cake decoration.

One of the prominent features of the fest is that it does not celebrate just great food, exceptional wine and decorated chefs, but also to raise funds for hunger-relief. The proceeds are donated to Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign and Food Bank For New York City. The fest so far has raised about 9.5 million dollars for the noble cause.
