MCCN’s Nataki Hewling and Simone Baptiste got the opportunity to cover the New York Vendy Awards 2012.  I got the opportunity back in 2010.  It’s a great event held on New York’s Governor’s Island.  If you don’t live in New York but want to a real taste of what one of the world’s culinary capitol’s has to offer then schedule going to this event.  In 2010 the lines were very long and Baptist reports, “The  lines are long but the food is great at the Vendy Awards.

LA Street Food Fest from a Vegetarian Perspective

In 2012 Veronica Herrera attended the LA Street Food Festival.  Her perspective is that of a vegetarian.   The annual festival takes place at the Rose Bowl, featuring LA’s Best Food Truck and street vendors.   Your ticket is a all access pass to a taste of LA.  Some portions are pretty small while others are an adequate style.  After all,  you get to linger and nibble all day.  Moreover, the LA Street Festival like MCCN is a taste of the world from Indonesia to Mexico to Southern Barbecue.    Expect frozen desserts, cupcakes, drinks and other items to choose from.

It is a great event.
