The Gourmet Food and Wine Expo has a special place in my heart! Writing about the expo was one of the first blog posts I have ever written on my blog (2013 review) and the expo was where I first met Chef Roger Mooking and Chuck Hughes.  Last year, I had the privilege of cooking on the celebrity stage for The Chef and Dish demo.

The expo is a ton of fun! I enjoy the bar-like vibe, live entertainment, and drinks! This expo to me is all about the drinks, rather than the food…for once.


Thank you to everyone who entered through my blog and Instagram.

Congratulations to Jenn (jenn_fitnessfoodie), Nancy (@nancicila) and Jonathon (@jon_mrdimsum)!
