June 8th-12 was a great time for foodies in our area. Westchester Magazine’s Wine and Food Week was a smashing success. Events held at Bloomingdales in White Plains, Kensico Dam Park in Valhalla and at the Ritz-Carlton in White Plains were all well attended and featured fabulous food wine and beer.
Thursday June 9th was the Burger and Beer Blast with burger offerings from 30 different local restaurants competing for the title of best burger in Westchester. Also served was beer, wine and spirits. Food trucks with pizza, hot dogs and soft serve ice cream were also on hand.
Friday June 10th was a special night at the Ritz Carlton in White Plains as 20 of the best chefs from the county served up food for guests at this special event. There was plenty of wine available for tasting as well.
Saturday rounded out the week at the Grand Tasting Village at Kensico Dam in Valhalla. Here there were chef cooking demonstrations and two large tents filled with tastings from 43 restauants. More than 100 wines were available for tasting as well as samples of gin, whisky, tequila and vodka.
Here are some scenes from the parties. The next big event for Westchester Magazine will be its annual Best Of Westchester Party to be held on July 27th at the Glen Island Harbor Club in New Rochelle. Don’t miss it !
