Food Network Event

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!

Bobby Flay carved pumpkin
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.

Oh fun! Well I'm happy to see that Bobby was so nice. I couldn't tell when I saw him - he seemed tired.
