You may know that the festival offers an exciting mix of wine and food demos, celebrity chef-hosted parties, and restaurant industry talks, but there's plenty more that goes on behind the scenes. We thought it'd be fun to offer a glimpse of the event by the numbers. Let's begin with the biggest two: roughly 50,000 guests will attend this year's festival, and 100 percent of the proceeds from those festival tickets will go to the Food Bank For New York City and Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign. For more astounding numbers, read ahead.

Earlier this season, I was sent a curious-looking bottle of pumpkin pie cream liqueur from Fulton's Harvest, a label I'd never heard of. With a bottle of something so distinctive (and with the potential to taste either phenomenal or terrible), I was at a loss for what to do — so I took to the Twitterverse for some answers.
I soon found out more about Fulton's Harvest, including the fact that it's made by well-reputed Kentucky Bourbon maker Heaven Hill Distilleries and tastes delicious on the rocks or served chilled. But by that point, I'd gotten back so many enticing-sounding cooking and cocktail suggestions — everything from pumpkin whipped cream to spiked pumpkin pie — that I had to try one out.
Ultimately, it was @Tora_NYC's Irish cream suggestion that left me with a brilliant Fall twist on a favorite, Irish coffee. As with any Irish coffee, don't let the whipped cream and coffee fool you — this cocktail packs a punch! I served it in a giant glass mug, topped with a very generous topping of whipped cream. For the recipe, keep reading.

Season to taste: three simple words that can, and often do, mean the difference between a bland and a boisterous dish, but what does it mean exactly? It may seem like a cop-out directive added by lazy recipe writers, but truly, even if a recipe does not explicitly call this step out, it's best practice to include it in your cooking process.
In an ideal world, a recipe would turn out the same regardless of who's at the stove, the ingredients and tools they used, and their interpretation of instructions, but that's simply not the case. While most foods should not taste explicitly salty, tart, hot, or oily, the inclusion of small amounts of ingredients with these qualities can take a dish from bland to exceptional in a flash.
Since it will be seemingly impossible to avoid candy this October, why not make your own? If you think the task of candy making seems daunting, complicated, and not worth the effort, then think again. Put the rumors to rest with these nine treats — like fluffy marshmallows, candied citrus peels, and chocolate bark — for a rather simple but sweet addition to your candy dish.
These tacos by Whipped employ Fall produce like sweet potatoes mixed in a creamy basil lime sauce for a vegan dish suitable for taco night.
Don’t let the sweet potatoes scare you off in these tacos — these little gems are spiced up with chili powder and cumin and are fantastic with the cool, creamy basil lime sauce. Topped with savory caramelized onions and black beans, this dish will surely get you out of your dinner rut.
