Food Is Everywhere

There will be a magnificent opportunity to indulge in samples from Washington’s best restaurants at the 7th Annual Grand Tasting Pavilion. This well-attended event offers samples from around 50 restaurants. Participants even get a chance to vote on their favorites. A portion of the proceeds will benefit SOME (So Others Might Eat), a worthy organization that provides aid to the poor and homeless of DC. There will be book signings by celebrity chefs such as Martha Stewart and Wolfgang Puck. A number of cooking classes are provided, which offer everything from making sauces, to baking holiday cookies, to preparing appetizers.  At the fabulous BBQ Bash, chefs will serve samples of their barbeque, and visitors will determine the winners. There will be several mouth-watering categories to choose from, including Best Chicken, Best Ribs, Best Pork, Best Sauce, and Best Side.

For many attendees, the beer, wine, and spirits garden is a particular treat. Participants enjoy unlimited tastings from a variety of breweries, distilleries, and wineries.
