Any food-centric events happening Feb 10-15?

I'll be in town during that time and am trying to find memorable food events. If Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert are giving a talk, I want to go. If some food festival is happening, I'd like to attend. If David Chang is going to a farm to slaughter a cow and cook it on-site, I want to eat it.

I have been keeping track of a few New York City blogs, but so far, haven't found out about any events yet.

    Michael Anthony from Gramercy Tavern is doing a "Beard on Books" talk. I've always wanted to go to one of these events at the James Beard House. haven't made it yet, though.


    Plating sketches from Ferran Adria of El Bulli will be on exhibit at The Drawing Center:

      Added The Drawing Center to the list! Thanks!

      I have also always wanted to go to the James Beard House. Trying to fit this in.

        If you haven't yet, sign up for Thrillist's daily email. It's beyond irritating to have to wade through the marsh of incessant bro-speak (I'm still trying to figure out what "steez" means), but you'll get some decent information about food & drink events. Here's today's, for reference:

          Thanks, I just spent the past 30 minutes on their website. Already picked up a few places to try. You're right about the "bro-speak".

            You're welcome. There's a lot of overlap between Thrillist, Grub Street & Eater, but the latter two have a broader focus (review roundups, chef interviews, health department misadventures). I look at all three, but sticking to Thrillist will save you some time.

          Looks like the astor place wine center has a burbon and bacon tasting on the 15th....

          City winery also has a few tasting events including one with italian wines from tuscany:

            Another site for you, in case you're unaware of it: Tasting Table.
