NYC Foodie Weekend

DSC00134

Well, the pleasant faux-spring weather doesn't look like it's going to be making an appearance this weekend. Fortunately there's some good foodie fun to be had around the city...

SATURDAY & SUNDAY
Children's Food Festival in Bryant Park
The inaugural, Kids Food Festival starts on Saturday. Free samples, food for sale or other activities to help kids make fun and smart food choices.

SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY
Cochon 555: 5 Chefs, 5 Pigs, 5 Winemakers
Porkafiles, this is your weekend. Blondie and I attended Cochon 555 two years ago and it was EPIC! So many piggies. So much good eating. This year promises seven whole heritage pigs and a butcher demonstration from Cesare Casella of Salumeria Rosi. Tickets: $125 per person/$200 for VIP.

TUESDAY
Ok, it's not the weekend, but this Afternoon Tea at PARK HERE in Nolita sounds awesome. Tea by Tiffany founder Tiffany Denise will be hosting afternoon tea from 1-5 pm on Tuesday. Tickets are $25 and include a selection of organic teas, sandwiches, petite fours, biscuits, scones and chilled drinks.
