“I’ve been with NYCWFF since the beginning. I think Lee Schrager is a brilliant promoter, a fantastic philanthropist and someone who is a real leader in the food space. And what happened as an idea of ‘let’s throw a couple of food festivals in South Beach and New York’ obviously has become the largest food events in the world, and A-list people all the way.”
