I'm excited about this event because I realized that while I eat a lot of Asian food I haven't tried that many types of cuisine outside of Vietnamese, Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Thai. I also don't know much about beer, sake or wines, so I'm looking forward to tasting and learning more.
My friends and I have been talking about the chef-guided bike tour which will go to two local farms in Queens. I haven't committed to the bike tour yet because I'm not that confident in my biking ability or my ability to be in Queens by 8:30AM. For those without bikes, there's also going to be a walking culinary tour of Flushing.
Tickets are $60 and all proceeds from the event will benefit the Food Bank For New York City and City Harvest. If you buy online and use code "AFQueens", you can get $50 tickets!
