Blasblog: From Fashion Week To Food Weekend

-------

Full disclosure: I like to eat almost as much as I like to judge what people are wearing. (Almost.) So when an invite came my way to a dinner that Veuve Clicquot (wait, I feel like I should add here that I like drinking Champagne while eating and judging) was hosting for the French food fair Le Fooding, I thought it would be a nice change of pace from my trudge through two fashion weeks so far. The event this weekend at P.S.1 in Long Island City is the culinary organization’s first time stateside. (Their press materials flatter our fair city’s gourmet chops, stating, “The reality of the ingredients comes first. The greatest chefs happily rustle up a simple sausage.”

Interestingly enough, last night my table was a mix of fashion-world foodies. Waris promised me he was very important in the European culinary world. I thought he was kidding till the president of Veuve asked him to make a speech. (Though he lost some credibility and class points when he tried to start a food fight.) Meanwhile, Katie Lee helped me by pointing out who everyone was. Apparently seeing Daniel Boulud is a big deal. (“It’d be like having Karl Lagerfeld at one of your parties,” she explained.) Vena Cava’s Sophie Buhai provided the most surprising culinary tidbit. Turns out the designer, who was there with Maroon 5′s James Valentine, is proud member of the Bacon of the Month Club. Membership gets you a new regional pork product delivered 12 times a year. Le Fooding-New York will be held tonight and tomorrow at P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center from 6 to 10 p.m. Tickets are $25.
