Emeril and Lidia to Appear at Edible Garden Finale Festival Weekend at NYBG

This weekend is your last chance to catch the Edible Garden programming at New York Botanical Garden. There will be all sorts of cool stuff happening from 10am to 6pm tomorrow and Sunday... click here for a full lineup of the scheduled events.

In addition to complimentary food, beer, and wine tastings throughout the day, there will be various seasonal cooking demonstrations. Emeril Lagasse will be cooking in the Conservatory Kitchen on Saturday from 2 to 3pm, and will be available for book signing in the Shop at the Garden from 3 to 4pm. Lidia Bastianich will present her cooking demo on Sunday from 2 to 3pm, and then will be signing books from 3 to 3:30pm.

Warning to Lidia: If there's a swarthy looking bespectacled man who gives you a love letter or excitedly tosses his boxer shorts up on the cooking stage, it's my husband. He's a little obsessed with your show... The man makes a mean gravy and meatballs thanks to you.

Pricing: Grounds only will be free on Saturday before noon. If someone wants to see The Edible Garden programming, the Conservatory, and the cooking demos, they will have to purchase the $20 All Garden Pass or for the cooking demos $35. Members get full range of programming, except the cooking demos. They pay $15 for the premium seating for the cooking demos.
