UPDATE: Congrats to (drum roll. . .) Mary Newell from Centennial, CO. She’s the winner of our trip to New Orleans and our guest at the Experience. Have a blast, Mary.
BIG NEWS: Fine Cooking is the Premier National Media Sponsor of the 2012 New Orleans Wine & Food Experience! Wow!
The festival runs from May 22nd through May 26th in the heart of gorgeous, food-obsessed New Orleans, and we couldn’t be more excited to participate. This happens to be the festival’s 20th anniversary, and over the past two decades it has raised more than $1 million for non-profit organizations across New Orleans. There will be dozens of chefs from more than 75 restaurants offering samples of their delicious food, and thousands of wines to try from more than 175 wineries. It’s going to be a fantastic party!
FC editors will be there (yahoo!) along with extra-special chefs David Guas, Bill Taibe, and Joanne Weir, who’ll be part of the Royal Street Stroll on Thursday and the Grand Tastings on Friday and Saturday. Tickets are on sale right now, so I hope you’ll consider hopping a plane and coming down to meet us and our contributors. We’d love to see you there.
NOTE: Contest now closed. Thanks for entering!
