The New York City Wine and Food Festival, one of the biggest star-studded culinary events in the country, will include a fierce Drag Brunch that has several notable names attached to it.

The event, taking place on October 12 at the Highline Stages in NYC’s Meatpacking District, will be hosted by Younger star and all around gay icon Debi Mazar. Debi, 55, has become a culinary wizard of her own in recent years with her fabulous cookbooks that she’s written with husband Gabriele Corcos.

Debi will have a fantastic co-host by her side during the upcoming event. Patricia Field, legendary costume designer whose work was seen throughout the show Sex and The City, will be there as well as performances by drag queen superstar and cabaret singer Joey Arias and drag artists Pixie Aventura and Jasmine Kennedie

The event will also feature kicked-up cocktails and a creative brunch prepared by notable chefs from restaurants including Meatball Shop, Egghead and PieCaken Bakeshop.

Last year’s event was hosted by Real Housewives of New York City star Luann De Lesseps and featured the culinary talents of openly gay (and very cute) chef Adrian de Berardinis
