Giada De Laurentiis, David Chang, Bobby Flay, and...Zac Posen?

Today marks the first day of the second annual Food and Wine Festival in Manhattan, which also happens to be the second event taking place in the city over the past two months that I wish I could have taken part in. (Remember Fashions Night Out? Sad face). Dinners, demonstrations, and parties will be hosted by genius local chefs such as Tom Colicchio, David Chang, and Rachel Ray just to name a few. One of the most anticipated events happening during the four day food frenzie, is the collaboration of chefs Giada de Laurentiis, Marcus Samuelsson and fashion designer, Zac Posen. The trio will be coming together in the West Village hosting and preparing a private meal on Saturday evening. While reading an article interviewing Marcus Samuelsson and Zac Posen, a specific paragraph caught my eye and I couldn't help but relate these words to Cuppity Cake and the sometimes impossible cupcake baking.

 “I think food and fashion make complete sense together,” says Samuelsson, zipping around his kitchen one sunny afternoon... “You really appreciate somebody that uses good fabric or uses good ingredients. I don’t know how it is for Zac, but for a chef you constantly ask, ‘Doesn’t it taste good? Doesn’t it taste great?’”

Other events taking place during the Food and Wine Festival are Rachel Ray's Burger Bash at the Tabacco Warehouse in Brooklyn, Paula Deen with her souther-styled food showcase at Hill Country, and Tyler Florence with his bacon and blues themed soiree at the Standard hotel. In addition, all proceedes from ticket sales go towards efforts to fight hunger. Charity, great food, chefs, and designers? Why not.
