Last night, I scored a couple tickets to the New York City Wine and Food Festival SWEET Event. Let me just tell you this, the people at Food Network and FOOD & WINE know how to throw a party. This was the dessert party of my dreams. As usual I ate, drank, met some idols and took a couple photos along the way!
|Champagne and Macaroons, the perfect combination!|
|I met Ron Ben-Israel, one of the BEST cake designers of all time!|
|"So Ron, how do you make cakes?"|
|Yes, that's a cake!|
|Karen DeMasco (Another Idol!) is the pastry chef at Locande Verde |
and author of The Craft of Baking.
|Sandra Lee and possibly secret service behind her.|
|Bobby Flay (Not sure how good he is at pastry, but who cares!)|
Elisa Strauss, of Confetti Cakes, was the most inspiring cake maker I met all night.She also showcased her cake push-up pops. (Is this the new cake pop!?)
|Of course, Tom found the S'more table. It's amazing what chefs can do with this treat.|
