The 7th annual Adirondack Festival of Food and Wine kicks off today at the Mirror Lake Inn! For the next four days, chefs, foodies, locals, wine enthusiests and those from all across the world will gather at in Lake Placid to watch cooking demos, sip speciality wines and open their pallet up to new tastes.  
The best part? We’ll be there on Saturday! I’m so excited, because this will be my first time attending! And believe it or not, it will be my first time at the Mirror Lake Inn!

This year’s theme is “The Culinary Melting Pot”: How taste influences the way we eat and drink. Guest chefs include: Chef Paul Sorgule, Chef John Barton, Chef Sarah Langan, Chef Curtiss Hemm, Chef George Higgins, Chef Louise Duhamel and Chef Kevin O’Donnell.

Plus, tons of guest presenters, including Ron Kapon, Shawn Dore, Doug McLeod, James and Anne McIlhenny and Bill and Kim Comiskey. {Hey, maybe one year I’ll be on that guest presenters list 😉 }

Festival highlights include:

 – An opening reception featuring: guest mixologists and theatrics with cocktails, an ice bar from Grey Goose and a wine bar.

 – Guest Chef cooking demonstrations, wine seminars and tastings.

 – The Ready-Set-Cook! Competition which pits the Inn’s culinary team against the talents of guest chefs. {I’ll be there for this on Saturday!}

 – A seven-course dinner paired with wines prepared by guest chefs, the Inn’s culinary team and our guest sommelier.

 – A farewell brunch and tasting featuring live jazz music.

Sounds so fun, right?!
