Aways such a blast! I have been a HUGE fan of this outstanding culinary event. I have been going there since they first started 5 years ago! And over the years I have seen it grow and succeed by leaps and bounds. It’s orchestrators, ie: the team at Serendipity magazine really know what they are doing. They addressed a need that folks around here didn’t even know they had. And they met that need in a super-fun and a super-creative way.
With a vibrant culinary landscape, Fairfield county Connecticut needed a mega-event to bring together all its talent in a celebration of food, restaurants and chefs. A WINE+FOOD festival was the perfect idea (thank you Serendipity magazine!)
Yes! You will eat and drink a LOT at the Greenwich WINE+FOOD festival. You can count on it. You will also see some incredible chefs doing food demos. You will get a chance to meet them and get your selfies with them. You will observe some of the best sommeliers and mixologists in action. You will have the opportunity to enjoy fantastic sit-down dinners prepared by the best of the best. You will hear some amazing music (the Wailers, Little Big Town) and attend some really fun parties. Think Burger & Beer. Think Master Griller & Tailgating party. Think Taco & Tequila party. This Burger Battle. Think Big Easy Dinner!!!! Phew! Dunno about you, but my head is ready to explode from all this thinking!
All these festivities will span Wednesday Sept 23rd though Saturday Sept 26th.
In the midst of all this merry making … or shall I say because of it, I love that a wonderful local charity reaps the benefits. The Hole in The Wall Gang Camp was started by Paul Newman in 1988. Ever since then it has made a remarkable difference in the lives of many kids and families coping with cancer and other serious illnesses.
So mark your calendars people! Start your diets now – so you can eat guilt free at the festival. Dust off your dancing shoes. But most importantly and before its too late – visit www.greenwichwineandfood.com to buy your tickets before they are all sold out! http://greenwichwineandfood.com/tickets/
