The 2011 New York Wine and Food Festival kicked off Thursday night with meatballs, lots of them. With what seems to be a festival tradition, Meatball Madness, hosted by Giada De Laurentiis, is a time when restaurants can display their version of a perfect meatball. Over 20 restaurants featured this popular comfort food to a sold-out crowd — they munched on meatballs containing everything from pork, to veal, to beef and even vegetarian options.

Joey Campanaro from The Little Owl won the judge’s choice award for his grandmother’s gravy meatball slider, while The Meatball Shop hit a soft spot with the crowd and was given the people’s choice award.

And The Great Food Truck Race Winner Is…

by in Shows, September 26th, 2011

The second season of The Great Food Truck Race hit the road with eight new food trucks and a grand prize of $100,000. Every Sunday, we saw each truck pull out all the tricks to stay in the game. But, ultimately, one truck said goodbye each week. Sunday night, it was down to the final two: The Lime Truck and Hodge Podge. Both battled multiple Speed Bumps and a Truck Stop that changed the competition for good.

Warning: spoiler alert after the jump.

In case you haven’t heard, FN Dish is participating in Healthy Eats’ Brown-Bag Challenge. The challenge: Bring your lunch to work each weekday for the month of September. We know this isn’t an easy feat, so we’ve asked some of our favorite food bloggers to share their experience and favorite recipes to help keep everyone motivated.

This week, Jenna Reed from The Undercover Cook is getting us through the work-week with her leftover tips.

It has always been my goal to take my lunch to work most days because it is cheaper and healthier than going out. Lately, though, my make-ahead lunches were slipping down the priority list in the evenings and becoming the exception rather than the rule.

Guy Fieri recently met with a couple who have made a hobby out of traveling to all of the places featured on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives. So far, Food Network fans Ben and Barb Stillwagon have been to 249 locations and have created a scrapbook collection of their travels. But it’s their latest stop at Guy’s own Johnny Garlic’s that brought them face-to-face with their inspiration and gave them a chance to share their memorabilia with him. SJ-R.com reports that “Guy asked Ben and Barb if they could leave the albums in Santa Rosa for a while so their souvenirs could be scanned into a computer for possible use in the future.” Ben described the meeting as a dream come true.
