A Weekend Food and Wine Getaway
Our own Sous Chef Humor has relocated from sunny southern California to the beautiful Texas Hill country. This past weekend, she ventured out to the Fredericksburg Food and Wine Fest.
Since I am new to Texas, I wanted the opportunity to taste and to learn more about the foods and wines that make Texas the wonderful state that it is. I had the opportunity to sit in several cooking demonstrations, learn about area fresh food markets, and tasted some wonderful wine.
Texas is known for friendly people and this event was packed with wine lovers, awesome vendors and down to earth folks, all enjoying a great time.
I discovered Fischer & Wieser. As a lover of raspberries, I purchased their Original Roasted Raspberry Chipotle sauce. Ah... the holidays are going to be nice.
With so many fine Texas Hill Country wineries to try, I sampled many but with a name like Sous Chef Humor...
To top it off, I discovered Arte Y Chocolate out of Austin Texas. Turns out the wonderful ladies working their booth are big Top Chef fans and will be joining the rest of us this season in our weekly chat room.
If you are visiting food and wine events, please feel free to share the experience with us and we will post them here on the blog.
So while I wait for season 5 to begin, I am off with a fine bottle of wine, some outstanding chocolate and bath teas for a relaxing bath. Be sure to pamper yourselves before season 5 begins.
