Food & Wine Classic Begins In Park City
The annual Food & Wine Classic is now underway in Park City – it runs through July 14. It gives people a chance to enjoy some of the best cuisine to be found in this acclaimed resort town. Here's a summary from the event's website:
There is something for everyone – from food and wine tastings, to seminars and cooking demonstrations, to outdoor adventures with food & wine influences, there are tastes and temptations at every turn.
The Park Record has this article about the festival. Below are excerpts.
The festival started as a two-day event and it was sort of an afterthought for wineries to participate, he said.
"Now, we hold a five-day festival and a lot of wineries want to get involved because they see what an opportunity the Classic is to introduce themselves to the state," Ornstein said. "They call us because they want to be part of it."
The event, which is also a benefit for the People's Health Clinic, a nonprofit organization that provides health care to the uninsured in Summit and Wasatch Counties, will be filled with outdoor activities, wine tastings, educational seminars and public and private dinners throughout the town.
