Food and Wine Festival Has Legs

This weekend there will be tongues doing the tango all over the Vineyard as the Food and Wine festival lands once again on our shores. Let’s face it, food never appears here in this style of abundant and delicious diversity except for during this annual event.

But it’s not just about the actual eating. When not rubbing the belly and sighing the sighs of the eternally sated, there will also be talks about food, not to mention wine and sake too, plus cooking demonstrations. Yes, do try this at home.

The festivities begin tonight at the opening reception held at the Boathouse in Edgartown. Bad news, though, for those who didn’t get the jump; tonight’s event is sold out.

There is plenty more to sample over the weekend, both literally and figuratively. Don’t miss the Grand Tasting from 2 to 5 p.m. on Saturday at the Field Club on Katama.
