San Diego: Local and international talents gathered at the gustatory tribute to all that’s good about wine & food (and there’s beer too) at the San Diego Bay Wine & Food Festival to be held from Nov 14 to 20, 2016.
It is San Diego’s largest wine and culinary event. Held each November, thousands attend, and why wouldn’t they? The festival includes gourmet food, wine and beer tastings, celebrity chefs, cooking demonstrations, wine tasting classes and auctions.
It’s also a great way to have someone do legwork work for visitors; festival organizers spend the year doing personal research, and then invite San Diego’s hottest restaurants and chefs to their table, providing people with tastes of the region’s latest food trends.
Chefs square off in the “Chef of the Fest Competition” (previous winners have pulled out all the stops with the likes of duck fat-fried beignets), and the People’s Choice Award allows you to render your own decision, which, of course, requires a taste.
