The seventh annual Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival is a four day extravaganza taking place in Monterey, California from April 10th-April 13th. With 250 wineries offering their goodies and over 75 celebrity chefs giving away their slicing and dicing secrets, this is every foodies dream!
Round trip from New York ⇄ Monterey, California (April 10th-April 13th) with prices starting at just $668, flight details: www.travelpapa.com
The event starts on Thursday at the world famous Inn at Spanish Bay and everyone who is an anybody in the culinary world will be offering up cooking demos to share their unique skills in a wide variety of dishes. There will be exclusive lunches and dinner opportunities everyday, with the menu ranging from Asian cuisine to some of the rarest, other-worldly delicacies.
The wine tastings are always a favorite (think of a buffet…but for wine!) with a total of 21 wine seminars taking place over the course of the four day weekend. Tingle your taste buds and test your knowledge with blind tastings and be the first to try some experimental flavors, such as “cherry pie wine” (combining our favorite two things: dessert and alcohol 2-in-1).
Not to mention that all this delicious excitement will be taking place on the beautiful Pebble Beach coastline, which is considered as the home to one of the most amazing golf courses in the world (a golf god’s throne, if you will). If you can find sometime between eating and drinking (and repeating), swing at a few balls, wander over to the Big Sur or find your way to the scenic Monterey Aquarium.
*sigh* If only every weekend was the fantastic…
