Food and Wine Festival "Today all the Food and Wine is Free" 2008
As Promised here is the first of several blogs about the Disney California Adventure Food and Wine Festival that we hope will return sometime in the future
Let the Festival begin
Starting things off with a little (FREE--Beer) Demonstration. Given by Karl Strauss. But first Brad had to knock over one of the samples while smashing his knee into the table leg. (Embarrassing ---yes but luckily the fellow in front of him had already knocked over 2 of his samples in the same fashion) The Curse of the Table leg ---they joked.
Ummmmmm Free samples.....
Ben Franklin Beer Quote was mentioned "Beer is living proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." (Ben Franklin ---was a Time Traveling Alien--what didn't he do)
Also the "That's what she said" beer comment of the day. "Put it in your mouth and let it cover your entire tongue"
Then we went to the Boudin Bakery Demonstration --with plenty of FREE Bread
The Sun Dried Tomato dip was amazing
Ratatouille Quote "You're the one who was getting fancy with the spices! What did you throw in there? Oregano? No? What, r - uh, rosemary? That's a spice, isn't it? Rosemary? "
The third and final FREE Tasting ---Wine and chocolate. A pairing I Absolutely love..... Any excuse for chocolate
