Marketplace Chef VIP Tours
Every Wednesday a Food and Wine Festival chef will host a walking and tasting tour. Guests will have the opportunity to taste five dishes and five beverages (including wine, beer and cocktails). In addition, be given some of their culinary secrets. This is one I must try!
