Perhaps it’s the Champagne, the crêpes or the pétanque (France’s answer to bocce ball), or some combination, but New York City has co-opted Bastille Day as its own.
On Tuesday, July 1, F&W BNC 2014 Matt McCallister will depart from his typical tasting-menu format to serve a family-style meal featuring dishes at Harry's Pizzeria in Miami.
It’s a big week for poetry. Today, Charles Wright was named the new poet laureate of the US—but more importantly, Francesca Coppola was named the winner of the Pasta Poetry Duel.
For centuries, poets have enthused about the beauty of a rose or the majesty of the sea—but what about pasta?
This spring in New York, we’ve partnered with the French Institute Alliance Francaise to present a series of panels and wine tastings celebrating Art de Vivre and the intersection of French and American culture.
F&W Chef-in-Residence Mario Batali makes killer pasta sauces, such as this tomato sauce. If you really want to cook like Batali, you can now train with his disciples at Del Posto.
On February 20, Food & Wine will help kick off the Food Network South Beach Wine & Food Festival (SOBEWFF).
From October 17 through 20, celebrity chefs and more food world talents from around the country will convene for the sixth annual New York City Wine & Food Festival to benefit the Food Bank for NYC and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry® campaign. Food & Wine is presenting the event, and to celebrate, superstars like contributing editor Andrew Zimmern, Rocco DiSpirito and Bobby Flay will flood F&W’s Instagram feed with photos taken at the best tastings and parties. (Follow along all weekend using the hashtag #NYCWFF.) There are still tickets left for headlining events like Rachael Ray’s Burger Bash, F&W’s Best New Chefs 25th Anniversary Party and Bobby Flay's Tacos & Tequila. As a teaser, the returning mega-chef shared this behind-the-scenes photo (left) from his recipe testing for the event. "The perfect taco has just the right amount of texture when you bite into it," says Flay. In the shot, he preps a secret ingredient, which adds nice crunch. Can you guess what it is?

The mad geniuses behind the funky French food festival Le Grand Fooding are bringing their special brand of awesome back to New York this September with my favorite theme yet: Time Mach’Inn. On September 27 and 28, 100 diners will travel back in time over 30 years of food and drink history with New York chefs Frank Falcinelli and Frank Castronovo, Parisian chef Yves Camdeborde and New Zealand chef Peter Gordon as their culinary tour guides. The chefs have created a four-course menu focusing on three periods: the Fusion Cuisine Years (1991-1999), the Bistronomy Years (1998-2007) and the Farm-to-Table Years (2008-2013). A crew of superstar mixologists, including the inimitable Tristan Willey of Booker and Dax, is set to pair Jameson whiskey cocktails with the dishes, and best of all, 10 percent of ticket sales will benefit the food-rescue hero City Harvest. I can’t think of a more delicious way to time travel.
When: September 27-28, at 7 p.m.
Where: 372 Columbia Street, Brooklyn, NY
Price: $100, including four courses, three cocktails, Stumptown coffee and surprises.
Tickets go on sale to the public in September, but Food & Wine is offering an exclusive pre-sale for the event here.

Here’s why we love ink. chef Michael Voltaggio: Not just because he’s a brand-new F&W Best New Chef (yay, Michael!), but also for his good manners. On June 4, he plays the consummate host by welcoming chef David Nayfeld (at left) to his city with a six-course dinner that they’re cooking together at ink. READ MORE>
