If you are friends with Subee’s Kitchen on Facebook, you’ve already heard the exciting news: ShopRite has asked me to join their Potluck blog community as a featured blogger! This means I’ll receive free ShopRite products to experiment with at home, and then I’ll post recipes, reviews, etc. on their Potluck blog about once a month. My bio isn’t up on the site yet, but will be coming soon!
As part of this new relationship, ShopRite invited me and the other Potluck bloggers to New York City last weekend for the Food Network’s 6th annual Wine & Food Festival. Here are some of the highlights. Maybe see you there next year?
Pier 94 was packed with sponsors, vendors, chefs, foodies, food, wine and freebies.
Delicious bites from Manon & Maison Dellos. . .
Pecan Frangipane with pecan pie buttercream, caramel poached pears and candied lemon puree. (I might have gone back for seconds. . .)
Me signing autographs at the ShopRite booth. (Kidding! Just telling people about the Potluck blog and handing out recipe cards.)
One of my favorite plates of food was from the Celebrity Cruises chef! Roasted kabocha squash soup with bacon bits, and raclette & Leek grilled cheese.
I might have had seconds of these as well, but only to work on my photography . .
Hey – look who’s decorating a cake!
The wine glass pendant – chic as well as practical!
Of all the great samples and freebies from the show, I was most excited about this ShopRite key ring – meant to remind you to bring your reusable bags into the store. I always forget mine!
Thanks, ShopRite, for the honor of joining your Potluck blog community and for the fantastic NYC weekend!
