Buy New York Wine and Food Festival Tickets on June 21


If you’re the sort of person who likes getting private tours of Chelsea Market with Alton Brown, or having Bobby Flay personally pour you a shot of tequila to go with your taco, start getting your mouse-click finger in gear for next Monday, June 21, at 9 a.m. — that’s when tickets go on sale for this year’s New York Wine and Food Festival. As with last year’s event, the hottest ticket will likely be the Rachael Ray–hosted Burger Bash, but there’s a whole lot of good stuff on the lineup: karaoke with Masaharu Morimoto, a sommelier showdown at Del Posto, a TimesTalk interview with Heston Blumenthal — and deep-pocketed truffle lovers will no doubt be psyched for the $600 white truffle walking tour hosted by Michael White. Check out the complete lineup at the official site, and get ready to fight off the crowds.
