A Festival Dedicated To All-Black Foods Is Coming To NYC This Weekend

Several years ago activated charcoal-everything was on the rise, and the city was turning all foods a gothic black. Now, a festival dedicated to all-black foods is heading to New York City.

The Dark Food Festival is dedicated to all black foods, and not just those that are artificially colored. Some of the most sought after items are black (or very dark), like rich coffee, dark chocolate, blackberries, and even balsamic vinegar that has been made for centuries using traditional methods.

At this festival you’ll find all kinds of exciting goth-looking foods, and even some of your favorite dishes, that are as dark as New Yorkers’ winter wardrobes. Think black ice cream flavored with black sesame, black coffee, boudin noir, black garlic, and black macaroons as examples. Dark Food Festival was created to share these unique ingredients from across the world in a new light. To share the food items developed by innovative ideas and culinary trailblazers with everyone.

Taking place this Sunday, May 19, the event will also feature a competition among the vendors where a panel of gastronomy professionals will decide the winners of two awards: “Dark Food of New York City 2019” and “Dark Drink of New York City 2019.” The awards will go to the most creative and exceptional dishes.

Tickets to the festival can be purchased here.
