Food Network hosts a SWEET dessert party

On Nov. 16, Food Network, along with Ferraro Rocher, hosted the SWEET dessert party, a preview event for the first:

Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival, coming in Fall 2008.

(These festival names are a mouthful!)

Rachael channeled her inner Oompa-Loompa for the event, with her mega spray tan proudly showcasing a deep chocolate-orange hue-- perhaps serving as an homage to the famous Willy Wonka candy makers?

And how is it that Ingrid Hoffmann, well-known as Food Network's most scantily dressed star, is wearing the most clothes!?!

I guess Miami girls have a hard time adjusting to New York weather.

Even Chiarello showed up! That's quite a jaunt from his Napa-valley abode, just for a lil' old candy party.

Businesswire has the deets on the goodies:

Guests will sample the mouthwatering creations of New York’s premiere pastry chefs, chocolatiers, and bakers, including such notable James Beard Outstanding Pastry Chef award winners and nominees as Le Bernardin’s Michael Laiskonis (2007 winner), Dessert Studio at Chocolat Michel Cluizel’s Will Goldfarb (2007 nominee), Jean Georges’ Johnny Iuzzini (2006 winner), and Karen DeMasco of Craft (2005 winner). Also participating in the festivities will be Food Network stars Rachael Ray, Giada De Laurentiis, Michael Chiarello, Duff Goldman, Cat Cora, Sandra Lee and Ingrid Hoffmann

Luckily, there was a good cause thrown in. The event benefitted Share Our Strength and the Food Bank for New York City.

Plus, you got a nice photo opp with G and R:

Doesn't that look... nice.


I didn't get a chance to go, but I'm hoping to make it to the actual festival next year. Check out http://www.nycwineandfoodfestival.com/ for more info.

Rachael is thinking, "How the hell do I deserve a picture with one of the best cooks on TV?"

I am planning on going - sounds like a great time!!

I think Rachael looks great...and even Giada (though I can't stand her, but she looks very pretty).

Was that Cat Cora in the red top? Lovely top, but the camera angle makes her look like she's going to kick someone's ass (maybe Irvine and Florence again).

Too bad I can't go - way too far. I've had my fill of Food Network personalities for one year after the big Metro Cooking Show in DC with Paula Deen.

That's 2 of the most pained expressions i've seen in a long time. RayRay's fakety fake smile and Giada looks like something from a wax museum. Obviously there's no love lost between these two.

with that hair, cat cora looks like she just stepped off of the set of steel magnolias.

It's nice to know Cat Cora has hair...I see her so often with it pulled back--out of necessity. And do let Ms. Hoffman thaw out...I like her spirit. (And I want to make her tamarind flavored ribs sometime soon.)

marc: haha

wendy: yeah, for sure.

jennifer: i like the outfits on both. it's just the oranginess that's a bit much.

john: yep, that's Cat. New York isn't very far from DC, though.... and a lot more fun (don't tell my DC neighbors I said that, though.)

anon: who knows. I have a feeling both were just tired and bored.

anon: haha... she does look a lil' feisty. Just like Dolly.

jeff: yeah, it's nice when she dresses up. let us know how the ribs turn out!
