The Emperorís Banquet served up a luscious and lavish TEN course feast. A combination of the finest of Imperial China and the delicious delectables of 21st Century America were served. The Emperorís Banquet is the amazing culmination of a global competition of the finest Chefs of Chinese Cuisine from around the world.

The Banquet is a blending of Five Thousand Years of Chinese History and culture, with the elegance and beauty of a New York Gala. The most stunning Han Couture Fashion show where the most beautiful Chinese models in 500 year old exquisite dresses wowed the crowd. Violinist Corin Lee transfixed his listeners with his classical performance, earning a standing ovation from the audience. And, to WOW the audience, swordplay Maestro Long Fei, had a few fluttering hearts as the mighty sword slashed through the air, but no-ones head was loped off!

Over forty top chefs, from numerous countries and parts of the U.S., competed for two days in the heart of TIMES SQUARE. The winning Chefs, in five distinctive regional cuisines, prepared last nightís extraordinary meal at Chelsea Piers, Pier 60.

A special presentation during the evening was made to Kerry Kennedy, President of The RFK Center for Justice & Human Rights. Their mission is to realize Robert Kennedyís Dream of a Peaceful and Just World by Advancing Human Rights. Ms. Kennedy gave a riveting speech and quoted the eloquence of her father.

Food Networks celebrity host Marc Summers served as a special guest host. He discussed the importance of NTDís mission and shared with the crowd his extensive food knowledge while listing the 10 salivating courses they would be eating.

Celebrities, and a long list of VIPs, added to the excitement and glamour of the event. Patrick Harvey and Catherine Saxton, co-chairs of the event, Zhong Lee, chairman of NTD, Samuel Zhou, VP of PR and Development, Pia Maria and Stephen Norris, Bob and Paula Butler, Dick and Donna Soloway, Ava Roosevelt, Jane Holzer, Tim Gannon and Jamie Figg attended the banquet. Maribel Alvarez led a glittering Palm Beach contingent headed by Judy Grubman.
