Earlier this fall I was given a Media pass (#bloggerperks) to the Cincinnati Food & Wine Classic.
It's a HUGE annual event at Washington Park and trust me - you will gorge yourself like you've never done before.
Tickets aren't cheap but the food is amazing. They have numerous tastings all weekend as well as seminars, classes and more. I would highly recommend subscribing to their email list to keep you updated for next year!
When I go to a tasting - I have this NEED to taste each item. It's painful. The thing I've learned is to take a bite - if you don't love it - let it go. There will be more things you LOVE and you want to be sure and have room for them!
That said - I did have a few favorites - and the fact that this event was 2 months ago - and I still remember them - says a lot!
Then - my absolute favorite of the night - like not even a close race for me - was...
was Renee Schuler from Eat Well Catering!
Lastly I'm giving an honorable mention to Bouquet in Covington.
They served us a delightful fruit salad. Now you say - fruit salad??? How is that a best of? Because when you have stuffed yourself full of every delectable dish in the entire city - and you're zipper is bursting and your feet hurt from standing and your belly hurts from combining every random cuisine on the planet - you are GIDDY beyond belief to find something delicious and LIGHT!!! Oh it was a refreshing end to my evening. So thank you Bouquet!!!
The Food & Wine Classic was a great time and I highly recommend it - you'll love it!
