Taste the best of the city and beyond at the WGBH Food & Wine Festival. On Saturday, September 17th, the Artisan Taste pops up at WGBH Studios with cooking demos, book signings, live music and, of course, plenty of food and wine. Close to 30 area restaurants will be serving up bites in the Grand Tasting Pavilion alongside vintners and brewers sharing their boozy wares. The Guest Street Marketplace will feature a road show of Vermont artisans and over at the Culinary Theater, you can catch chef Andy Husbands with a live pit BBQ demo or PBS star Ann Esposito of Ciao Italia with tomato preservation techniques. (Chef Barry Maiden of the late Hungry Mother will also make an appearance.)
The Taste runs 4:00-9:00pm and the 2016 WGBH Culinary Stewardship Award winner will be announced at the end. The award is granted to a chef with a dedication to educating on food topics or cooking techniques, inspiring others to expand their culinary horizons and contributing to improved food quality by investing in sustainability. 2015’s winner was Jason Bond of Bondir and this year’s nominees include Jared Forman of Deadhorse Hill and Chandra Gouldrup of The Farmer’s Daughter, among others.
