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.
