We had the enormous pleasure of sharing the BoomCase at the Food Network, New York City Food and Wine Festival (NYCWFF). For two days world renowned chefs, culinary rock-stars and media personalities had a chance to experience BoomCases first hand as a part of the “Thank You Lounge” curated by GBK Productions.
The festival took place at Pier 92 in a 130,000 foot pavilion filled with chefs and wine makers prepared to wow you with small bites and signature drinks. Wine enthusiasts, food-bloggers, editors, and restaurant industry leaders enjoyed a variety of rare and cult favorite brands with a range of diverse offerings from Japanese wagu beef to New Orleans Pralines (this explains the mardi gras beads we found in our suitcases). Cooking demonstrations played on flat screens from multiple stages as Food Network stars did what they do best in front of live audiences.
In the GBK Thank you Lounge we had the opportunity to share the Boom with Emeril Lagasse, Marcus Samuelsson, Patti Labelle, Neil Patrick Harris, Rachael Ray, Andrew Zimmern, Adam Richman and many more on their way to and from cookbook signings and shows. The response was incredible and watching the way each guest interacted with the BoomCases created the need for this post.
Rachael Ray won the award for longest “Wooow,” and we’re happy to know Chef Marcus Samuelsson is a vintage suitcase collector. Can’t wait to get started on all of the cases for our new fans. Check out the pictures to see more from the event and thank you to everyone who stopped by. We’re also glad we were able to DJ from our BoomCase, and kept everyone in the suite dancing.
