Do You Have Big Ideas for the Restaurant Industry? Pitch Them to Martha Stewart, Tyler Florence at the New York City Wine and Food Festival

Submissions for the next great innovation in the food and restaurant industry will be narrowed down to the best three

If you’re holding on to the best restaurant app, food technology, or dining concept, here’s your chance to prove it.

The New York City Wine and Food Festival, which returns October 15, has added a brand-new program dedicated to innovation within the food and dining industry.

The FOODi challenge, as it’s called, will be part of a larger program called FOODi — Food, Business, + Technology.

The challenge invites people to submit their ideas for the restaurant industry — whether that means an incredible restaurant concept, brilliant smartphone app, new food technology, or a consumer product — for review. Entries will be narrowed down to the best three ideas, which will be presented at the New York City Wine and Food Festival, at the FOODi challenge on October 16.

The final three innovators will have the chance to pitch their ideas to industry leaders like Martha Stewart, Tyler Florence, and other major influencers.

Other FOODi panels this year will include Restaurant 2025, a look at how the restaurant industry will evolve over the next decade, with panels featuring people like Danny Meyer, founder of Union Square Hospitality Group, and Dan Barber, chef and co-owner of Blue Hill and Blue Hill at Stone Barns; and Steakonomics, during which the Bloomberg Intelligence team will explain how steakhouses turn a profit.

A larger-than-life Dubai magazine boss has been revealed as the man whose death on stage made TV chef James Martin change his life and quit Saturday Kitchen.

Dominic De Sousa, 56, a prominent figure in Dubai’s media industry, died on stage of a suspected heart attack while hosting the BBC Good Food Middle East Awards in 2015 in the UAE.

And it was this moment that 44-year-old TV chef Martin said caused him to re-evaluate his own lifestyle, leading to him leaving his hosting role on Saturday Kitchen last spring after 10 years of fronting the series.

Speaking to Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid on Good Morning Britain today, Martin said: 'I was chatting to him and he stood up on stage and collapsed and passed away in front of me! That was when I made the decision to change.'

Elaborating further, he went on: 'That was over a year ago. And I looked back at all the work I'd done. I'd had four days off that year and five days off the year before.

'That's when I realised things would have to change. It's partly the reason I gave up Saturday Kitchen.'

Friends described De Sousa as a larger-than-life character who died doing what he loved most - entertaining during his company’s events.
