The 17th Annual Taste of Tennis took place last week at the W Hotel in New York City. Serving as the “unofficial party” for the US Open in Flushing, this event mixed tennis superstars such as Venus and Serena Williams, Caroline Wozniacki, Raphael Nadal, Gael Monfils and many more along with renowned chefs such as Marcus Samuelson, Jonathan Waxman and Roxanne Spruance.
Tennis players participated in cooking demos, signed tennis balls, and even showed some dance moves with DJ Mad Linx. Guests enjoyed food tastings galore from top New York City Chefs and cocktails courtesy of Appleton along with fine wines and beers.
The event was made possible thanks to Olive Oils from Spain, the world’s largest producer and exporter of Olive Oil. Portion of the proceeds from the event benefit Wellness In The Schools(WITS). A national non-profit that inspires fitness and healthy eating for kids in public school.
