There is no greater joy for a committed foodie than to be beckoned to attend an event like the New York City Wine & Food Festival! Last weekend, I was lucky enough to attend the Ultimate Sandwich Showdown sponsored by Breville USA and Hellmann’s Mayonnaise during the festival in the meatpacking district of New York. It was foodie heaven as 12 top New York restaurants competed for a $2500 prize for the best sandwich.
Celebrity Chef Tyler Florence of the Food Network kicked off the event by asking the crowd “Who knew you could have so much fun between two slices of bread?” And fun it was as we sampled our way through the amazing and imaginative creations that some of the best chef’s in the city put together. Think melt-in-your mouth lobster roll, Korean-style short ribs with kimchee topped with fried egg, Pork belly pastrami and black angus meatball sub topped with fried shallots! Heaven!
