The Food Network had it's first New York City Wine & Food Festival. It is usually held in Miami Florida. It was so much fun. I walked around the Food Network building (originally was the Nabisco Biscuit Company from 1898 to 1958).
I didn't want to stand in a long line for an autographed Bobby Flay book so as I was walking by I said hi Bobby he waved and I took the picture. Later as I was going to meet my friend for a Tyler Florence demonstration and I see Bobby again and he said hi and I asked if I could take a picture with him and we hurried because he was done and had to leave and we did not want to get a flood of people charging at him! So look he took the picture he was eating gellatto and then ran in his limo...yes women caught on and were running towards us!
I met my friend Marlene and we watched an hour demo of Tyler Florence demo.4 people auctioned to sit up on stage and eat his dinner they made $750 to donate to charity.. Wow Tim Holtz got alot more for the shirt off his back at Creative Escape! But I hear it was Yummy and worth it and the smell was awesome.
