Hello everyone! Let’s start this post with a question to you all: Has Anyone Ever Been To a Food and Wine Festival? I have organized a few Food and Wine Tasting benefit long time ago but was never an attendee so when Palm Desert Food and Wine Festival invited me to attend as a guest, I was beyond excited. Some of you know that I used to blog about food and this tasting festival is right up my alley. The event features some of the best people in the food industry — chefs, vintners, and craft beer brewers and all set in the beautiful palm tree-lined El Paseo shopping district in Palm Desert, California.
We went for the Sunday Grand tasting and it was filled with delectable morsels from more than 40 restaurants, created by renowned chefs from the Coachella Valley and all across California. Although I didn’t drink much since I had to drive back to LA, I did get a glass of bubbly earlier at the event’s VIP lounge. The event itself hosted over 60 premium and sparkling wines, craft beers, and spirits. There were live food demonstrations by some of the biggest names in the industry such as Stuart O’Keeffe, Valerie Gordon, Zack Bruell and more. Everyone looked like they are having so much fun!! And tipsy too hahaha. Let’s take a visual experience and I’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
