Upcoming food (and wine) happenings

I don't know about y'all, but I have got serious cabin fever.  It is the middle of winter, and as much as I love being in my cozy house, I am itching for an adventure!  So, I looked up some local food events to get us started.

This weekend, February 24- 26, check out the VA Wine Expo.  From 12:00 P.M. – 7:00 P.M. on Friday, 11:00 A.M. – 6:00 P.M. on Saturday and 11:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M Sunday, wander the Greater Richmond Convention Center and taste hundreds of wines from dozens of Virginia wineries.  Among the amazing wine dinners at local restaurants, you can also attend seminars on food and wine on topics such as:

  • our 'Pleasure' Senses and Professional Wine Tasting Techniques with Bob Talcott, Wine Director, CAN CAN Brasserie
  • Why Virginia? The State of Wine in Virginia
  • Modern Charcuterie & Virginia Wines presented by Belmont Butchery
Speaking of wine, I am loving the Whole Foods class calendar!  Wine tasting, cooking demos, there are even classes especially for moms!  Most are moderately priced and many are free.

The city of Richmond is offering free urbanorganic gardening classes every Saturday through March 24th.  The classes are at the North Avenue Richmond Library from 11am - 12:30pm.  Tim and Mary from 17 Apart went to the first class last week- read what they learned here.

Want to learn more about Slow Food RVa?  Thursday, March 15 is Slow Food RVA's Early Spring Pot Luck &Membership Meeting.  This pot luck hosted by the University of Richmond's Center for Culinary Arts.  Register on Facebook. We are looking forward to finding out what events and political movements our Slow Food chapter is planning for 2012.

See y'all around!
