Best Bites: Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival

This past weekend, food-crazed crowds flocked to New Jersey’s famous boardwalk for Atlantic City’s 2011 Food and Wine Festival. With a star-studded line-up of Cooking Channel and Food Network chefs behind the burners, familiar faces were abound and good food was aplenty. A celebration of everything edible, drinkable and down-right delicious, the four-day feast featured tons of loosen-your-belt-worthy eats like Ben Sargent’s fiery Fish Curry Soup (pictured above).

Like Cooking Channel favorites Ben Sargent, Kelsey Nixon and Roger Mooking we couldn’t help but join in on the festivities. From Guy Fieri’s Cheese Steak Battle to Fire & Ice (an outdoor food and booze party), we made sure to bring back some of our favorite leftovers. Here’s what caught our eyes — and stomachs.

Conch Ceviche Topped with Citrus Sorbet
Chef Robert Irvine and his crew’s innovative pairing worked wonders on the palate. The ceviche and ice-cold sorbet met in perfect harmony, and the tangy citrus livened up each and every spoonful.

Cubanos: Pressed Cuban Sandwiches
A classic Cuban lunch: Buttered white bread, freshly sliced ham and pork, melted Swiss cheese and yellow mustard — simple, and yet so satisfying.

Spicy Crusted Seared Tuna, and Much, Much More
Robert Irvine’s station also served up a mouthwatering combination of spicy crusted chunks of seared tuna and black beans. Check out his fine-looking fish and all our other faves.

    I enjoyed so much great food and drinks at the Atlantic City Food and Wine Festival, but three dishes will stay in my mind as highlights… Ben Sargent's Lobster Rolls during his Viking Cooking School demo…Kelsey Nixon's Strawberry Shortcake during Sweet & Stylish (I needed to go back for seconds)…and Sunny Anderson's Chopped BBQ Pork Sliders topped with Apple Raisin Cole Slaw at her Sunset Sliders event.
