Grand Tasting Village

The last event I was part of at the Wine and Food Festival was the Grand Tasting Village. It consists of a series of large tents where chefs come for demonstrations, meet-and-greet with fans, and where restaurants and distributors of wine serve small portions of their products.

Main tents and demonstration tents

 
I was at the station that served Paula Deen's food. It was a lot of fun because people would come over looking forward to meet her and just a few had the opportunity to do it.



At the end of the day, I was exhausted and as happy as my knees were that the Festival was over I was very happy to have been part of such an amazing experience

See you next year!
