ShopRite to Host ‘Grand Tasting’ Event at 2015 Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE
Keasbey, NJ (October 2015) –
Now in its eighth year as a presenting sponsor, ShopRite will once again host the Grand Tasting presented by ShopRite featuring Samsung®
Culinary Demonstrations presented by MasterCard at the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival.
Open to the public on October 17 & 18 and located at Pier 94 at 55th
Street and West Side Highway, the 130,000 square foot culinary wonderland is the centerpiece of the Festival each year. ShopRite chefs will feature a sampling of original recipes using ingredients and special edition products found exclusively at ShopRite stores. This year’s event will showcase ShopRite Kitchen entrées, which are packaged in the perfect sizes to take home and call your own. Samplings of these new products, on their own and as the focal point of unique original dishes, will be available for tasting at the ShopRite booth, which is centrally located on Pier 94.
In addition to ShopRite’s offerings, attendees will have the opportunity to meet the greatest food stars in the country and sample food from local New York City restaurants, representing cuisine from around the world, all paired with premier wine and spirits.
In addition to its celebration of food and drink, the focus of the Festival once again is the fight to end hunger. All proceeds from the event benefit the hunger-relief organizations Food Bank For New York City and No Kid Hungry®.
To date, the Festival has raised more than $8.5 million to help fight hunger.
