New York City Wine & Food Festival Grand Tasting


TK New York has been a part of The Food Network’s New York City Wine & Food Festival since 2011, starting as the sponsorship manager and moving to the Executive Producer of the Grand Tasting. This three-day event held at Piers 54, 57, and 92, has unfailingly offered delicious samples from over thirty of New York City’s greatest restaurants, has partnered with over 100 of Southern Wine & Spirits’ suppliers, and has hosted over forty sponsors each year. Many would argue that the greatest treat served at the Grand Tasting are the culinary demonstrations by such celebrity chefs and culinary masters as Bobby Flay, Giada De Laurentis, Guy Fieri, Rachael Ray, and Rocco DiSpirito. In support of the festival’s slogan, “Eat. Drink. End Hunger”, 100% of the Grand Tasting’s net proceeds go directly to charities dedicated to fighting hunger across the globe, including the Food Bank for New York City and Share Our Strength. TK New York partners with these two charities to execute all event logistics and production elements, consistently creating a successful and delectable experience year after year.
