EXCLUSIVE: Can’t Get to the NYC Wine & Food Festival? Catch All of the Coverage on Twitter
Couldn’t snag tickets to some of the highly coveted events during the jam (and bacon, and burgers, and truffle pizza)-packed Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Food & Wine? Don’t worry about it. You can catch coverage of this weekend’s never-ending culinary events like the Blue Moon Burger Bash and Meatopia on The Daily Meal. But you should also be checking out Twitter for more coverage of the event.
For the first time, Twitter is teaming up with the NYCWFF, to bring you pre- and post-festival Q&As from Emeril Lagasse, Andrew Zimmern, and an upcoming Q&A session with Mario Batali. Twitter has also compiled a master list of chefs and food celebrities to follow on Twitter, many of whom will be live tweeting from their events and snapping photos from their vantage point at the festival.
"Twitter is where people go to have conversations about food. They share recipes, Tweet photos of their culinary creations and interact with top chefs from around the world," Janice Morris, entertainment and lifestyle news representative at Twitter told The Daily Meal. "We're thrilled to be teaming up with the NYCWFF, as they unite the best of the food community, and we look forward to seeing the #NYCWFF conversation unfold on Twitter."
