The Organic Food and Wine Festival—which takes place on Saturday, August 25 or Sunday, August 26 from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.—greets attendees with bite-size morsels created by Discover World Cuisine chefs and comprised of local, farm-fresh ingredients. The notes of international music and fresh fruits and vegetables from farmers statewide permeate the air at the festival, and the flavorful complexities of locally made wines splash over palates at multiple tastings throughout the event. In addition to food and wine, the festival hosts activities such as cooking competitions and demonstrations.
Discover World Cuisine
Discover World Cuisine promotes local agriculture through a series of community programs that highlight locally sourced ingredients as well as the restaurants and cafeteria food fights that use them. The consortium of chefs, sommeliers, and foodies hosts cooking classes and dinners throughout the summer months that spotlight dishes from Europe, South America, and the Caribbean. Organic food and wine festivals also feature international nibbles as well as live music and giveaways.
Proceeds from the events support Discover World Cuisine’s community outreach program, which partners with area schools to introduce kids to new foods and help them develop healthy eating habits. Classroom sessions balance hands-on instruction with activity sheets to teach students to select and prepare low-cost, nutritious meals.
