The Food And Wine Expo, New York Style
Peter Xavier Kelly
He's a respected restaurateur with over 25 years of experience in the industry, and Peter Xavier Kelly operates the most critically acclaimed restaurants in New York State, all located in the Hudson Valley. Among them are his Xaviar’s at Piermont, The Freelance Café, Wine Bar and Restaurant X and The Bully Boy Bar, which have all received the industry’s most coveted awards. And on October 22nd through the 23rd along with Tyler Florence of Food Network's Food 911, and several other noted chefs, Kelly will be working his culinary magic through live demonstrations under the Chef's Tent at The Greater New York's Food and Wine Expo
Returning for its second exciting season, this year's expo will be held at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts in Katonah, New York, one of the leading cultural centers in New York State. It's also the second year for the opportunity to sample over 1,000 wines from around the globe. The Grand Tasting Tents feature over 150 domestic and international wineries pouring their greatest vintages while area restaurants provide samples to accompany the wines you taste.
I can tell you from personal experience that last's years was phenomenal, and if you're in the area, do check out the ticket prices and event schedules in the above link for this year's event --and don't miss it.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit Power of Hope to aid in the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts.
Good Monday, all. Peace.
