NYC Chefs, Local Artist Set For USA Today Food And Wine Experience


ARTS AND KIDS AREN’T JUST FOR KIDS ANYMORE. GRAB A BRUSH AND GET READY FOR AN EXPERIENCE. WE’RE JOINED BY THE CHEF NICO OF BELLA JOYO. I’M GOING TO TALK TO THE CHEF FIRST ABOUT THE EVENT HAPPENING NEXT WEEKEND IN BROOKLYN THAT YOU’RE HERE TO TALK ABOUT THE USA TODAY FOOD AND WINE FESTIVAL. WE HAVE 35 OF THE BEST CHEFS IN THE CITY SETTING UP BOOTHS. EVERYBODY WILL COME, TASTE THE FOOD. WE’LL BE WOWED WITH SOME PAINT AND STUFF. THROW PAINT, WE’LL MIX BOTTLES OF PAINT AND WE’RE ALSO GOING TO BASICALLY HAVE ABOUT 250 BOTTLES AND PEOPLE CAN COME UP AND INTERACT WITH THE BOTTLES. AND PAINT THE BOTTLES? AND YOU BROUGHT US A FEW EXAMPLES HERE. THESE ARE THE FINISHED PRODUCTS. I WAS DOODLING AROUND. I DO EVERYTHING FROM MURALS THAT ARE 150 LONG — I WAS READING ABOUT YOU THAT YOU WORKED WITH OR FOR REALLY BIG NAMES. LADY GAGA. MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY WAS ON YOUR LIST. I MEAN, THAT IS CRAZY. . THAT IS AMAZING. THE THING IS, IT IS ALWAYS GOOD TO EXPERIMENT AND ALWAYS TRY NEW THINGS. I’M JUST ALWAYS TRYING TO MAKE SOMETHING ELSE HAPPEN WHETHER IT IS A VIRTUAL REALITY PAINTING OR GO DOWN THE STREET AND SPLATTERING A WALL, HAVING FUN AND SHOWING PEOPLE THEY CAN DO IT, TOO, IF THEY WANT. ONE MORE THING ABOUT THE EVENT, PEOPLE WILL BUY TICKETS AT DIFFERENT LEVELS. THAT’S CORRECT. THE LOWEST LEVEL IS YOU JUST GO AROUND AND SAMPLE ALL OF THE PEOPLE’S FOODS SO IT IS LIKE EATING ALL DAY LONG. YOU BROUGHT A COUPLE OF YOUR EXAMPLES. I BROUGHT DISHES FROM THE RESTAURANT. WE’RE ACTUALLY GOING TO BE DOING SOMETHING DIFFERENT. WE’LL BE DOING A NICE WHIPPED RICCOTA WITH A POACHED TOMATO. THIS IS A FENNEL SALAD WITH EDIBLE FLOWERS ON THERE. SHOULD I EAT ONE? YEAH! WE HAVE OUR SWORDFISH WITH THE FENNEL PUREE. JUST A SMALL EXAMPLE. BACK TO THE ART. SO ARE WE DOING THIS ONE OR THIS ONE? LET’S DO THEM ALL. HERE WE GO. THESE ARE GRAFFITI PINS SO ALL YOU DO IS JUST PUSH DOWN LIKE SO. IT WILL DRIP. SO IT IS ALMOST LIKE — OKAY. THIS WON’T BE DRIPPING ALL OVER THE DRESSES, RIGHT? IT COULD. I SEE. I’LL HELP YOU CLEAN IT UP. IT IS OKAY. YOU DO WHATEVER YOU WANT TO DO. JUST HAVE FUN! SO PEOPLE CAN COME UP AND PAINT THESE WINE BOTTLES WITH ME AND THEN AT THE END OF THE NIGHT, THEY TAKE THEM HOME. I LIKE THAT. WHAT IS IT ABOUT ART? IT IS REALLY SO RELAXING. IT IS MEDITATING, ISN’T IT? IT IS KIND OF, LIKE, DO WHAT YOU WANT AND HAVE FUN. I LOVE EVERYONE! WE’LL DO A COLLABORATION. HERE WE GO. THERE YOU GO. I CAN’T REALLY DO THIS THAT WELL UPSIDE DOWN, BUT — WHAT IS YOURS GOING TO BE? I GUESS I’LL SPRINKLE MINE ON THE BOTTOM. AND WE’LL HAVE JOHN ELLIOTT COME IN HERE. CHEF, DO YOU KNOW, ARE ALL OF THE RESTAURANTS, ARE THEY ALL FROM BROOKLYN? THEY’RE ALL FROM NEW YORK CITY. ALL OVER THE PLACE. THIS IS FUN. AND SO YOU EAT AND THEN YOU PLAY. YEAH. THAT WILL BE AWESOME. COME. ARE YOU GOING TO COME? IF WE WEREN’T WORKING, WE WOULD COME. IT IS NEXT SATURDAY. NEXT SATURDAY. THERE WILL BE CELEBRITY CHEFS.
