Violife® Named Event Sponsor for Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One

Violife®, the no. 1 selling retail brand of dairy free cheese in the U.S., is proud to announce their debut as an event sponsor at the Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by Capital One (the Festival). Violife has partnered with Mike Puma, the award-winning chef of NYC’s Gotham Burger Social Club, who will showcase Violife dairy free cheese in a custom plant-based burger to be offered for tasting at the Festival.

In addition, Violife created and will sponsor the Powered by Plants Award at the Festival’s Blue Moon Burger Bash® presented by Pat LaFrieda Meats hosted by Rachael Ray.  Burger Bash, now in its 16th year as part of the Festival, is a burger-juice-dripping extravaganza and one of the most popular events at the Festival.  This year, with the introduction of the Powered by Plants Award, plant alternatives to meat patties will take the spotlight and will be showcased for the first time.  Powered by Plants Award burger entries must contain a minimum of 25% plant-based or alternative protein substitute in the burger patty and be topped or paired with a plant-based or dairy-free condiment, sauce, or cheese.

“The beauty of the Festival is the eclectic foods that everyone can enjoy, and we’re excited to bring Violife and dairy free options to Burger Bash,” said Rachel Waynberg, Sr. Marketing Manager of Foodservice for Violife. “We’re always blown away by the creativity of these the talented chefs and we can’t wait to see the plant-based creations that Gotham Burger and the Powered by Plants Award competitors bring to the table.”

The event takes place:
Friday, October 13
7:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Capital One Early Entry: 6:30 PM
Pier 86, Home of the Intrepid Museum

Hello there! I'm a 21-year-old university student majoring in Finnish and Korean Language and Literature. I have a deep passion for art and a profound connection to the natural world. My journey through life has been a colorful one, driven by my love for creativity, music, and the wonders of the great outdoors. As a dedicated student, I've already earned a degree in Classic Cantos, a testament to my appreciation for the timeless beauty of classical music. Beyond the classroom, my artistic spirit thrives through my love for painting and drawing. These creative outlets allow me to express my thoughts and emotions, transforming blank canvases into vibrant stories. My interests go far beyond music and art. Singing, playing the piano, and exploring new melodies are integral parts of my life, providing me with both solace and exhilaration. When I'm not immersed in the world of art and music, I find solace in nature's embrace. My heart is drawn to animals and the serene beauty of the natural world, fueling my desire to protect and preserve our precious environment.
