Meatopia X: The Carnivore’s Ball

Creekstone Farms and Michael Symon present Meatopia this October 19th, 2014 on Pier 92 on the Hudson River. Meatopia is produced in Partnership with The Food Network New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE. For the first time in 10 years the event is being hosted in Manhattan as the big closing of the New York Wine & Food Festival. Founder Josh Ozersky looks forward to the event and states, “For our tenth birthday, the Festival and I have spared nothing in putting together a dream team of carnivorous cookery.”

Chefs at the event include Paul Qui from Austin who is making Tabasco and ginger philipino chicken. Aaron Franklin is returning to the event this year to cook a beef plate, and a better version of brisket. Michael White will be preparing quail spiedini.  Alex Lee, the New York Chef, will be preparing cream soda-brined short rib pastrami on house-baked rye (yum). Matt Lightner, turning away will be cooking  grilled chicken with an amazing Alabama white sauce. British chef Richard Turner will be making bone-on prime rib-eye steaks, and Puerto Rican chef Jose Enrique will be working on an Achiote flank steak. “John “Eff You” Tesar” will be doing a sous-vide lamb rack over red oak with kim chi and Sriracha butter.

These are the chefs that will be cooking inside the tent, however as you enter the event the first thing you will see are the whole animal preparations. Bryan Voltaggio will be doing a whole side of rose veal and Michael Psilakis will be doing lamb. Seamus Mullen will be doing Spanish chickens and Anthony Goncalves will be doing Iberian spiced whole hogs. The star of the show will be the 1000 lb whole Creekstone steer which will be prepared and cooked by the “meat king;’ Mr. Pat LaFrieda.

Tickets are available now for $150 here
