Call me a sucker for sweets! SWEET, New York City’s Largest Dessert Party Ever, Takes Manhattan on November 16.
Manhattan’s sweet tooth will be satisfied like never before on Friday, November 16th at 9:00 pm, when the nation’s pastry elite descend upon the ultra chic Waterfront (269 11th Avenue between 27th and 28th Streets) to celebrate SWEET, a deliciously decadent evening with a charitable outcome to end hunger. Guests will sample the mouthwatering creations of New York’s premiere pastry chefs, chocolatiers, confectioners, bakers and fromagers, including such notable James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award winners as Le Bernardin’s Michael Laiskonis (2007), Jean Georges’ Johnny Iuzzini (2006) and Karen DeMasco of Craft (2005). Also participating in the festivities will be Food Network stars Rachael Ray, Giada De Laurentiis, Duff Goldman, Cat Cora and more. Desserts will be complemented by selections of outstanding wines, Champagnes and spirits from the Southern Wine & Spirits, NY portfolio.
The evening will be co-hosted by Share Our Strength, Food Network’s official charitable partner and one of the nation’s leading organizations working to end childhood hunger in America, and Food Bank For New York City, dedicated to fighting hunger in our own backyard.
