Thanks for posting these pics. I don't know when I would be able to make DLR's Food and Wine fest, but these sure make me willing to try Also makes me wish I could get more than the few days I am able to get for the WDW F&W

This is my final installment of Taste for this year, so Iíll wrap it up with Dessert! By this time I was so overstuffed that I wasnít thinking very well about the pictures. In fact it wasnít until after dessert that I realized I should have been taking pictures all along! After taking the pictures you see here I went around to all the other tables and took all the pictures that I posted previously!

As I mentioned in the first Taste post, I had been hesitant to sign up for this event due to the limited seating. We created our own tables right on the front of our scooters.



I canít tell you what any of these desserts were, but they were all really good, here are some close ups.







This is us in our scooters with our tray tables attached. Youíll see us again in 2010 with the same set up, but Iíll take more pictures!

Sweet Sundays with Keeghan Gerhard

Our last official event of the F&W Festival 2009 was Sweet Sundays with Keghan Gerhard. We started off the morning at 10AM with a lovely buffet style breakfast with sausage, potatoes, muffins, croissants, fruit and Iím sure there was other stuff like juice, coffee, and more importantly sparkling alcoholic beverages of a tasty sweet nature!

Once we were finished with the savory portion of our breakfast Keeghan Gerhard came out to demonstrate some yummy pastries that we got to eat for dessert. You can see his darling wife in the background performing as sous chef of this occasion.



This first item was a chocolate crepe filled with passion fruit puree (I think) and topped with whipped cream and some kind of chocolate sauce.



The next one was a waffle with fruit topping and ice cream, I know they made these waffles the night before because when I met up with Keeghan (next post) the night before he mentioned (to another chef) that he had ďjust finished making X (X = a lot) of mini waffles for the presentation tomorrowĒ





By the time I got to this last dessert, I was sooooooo full, I donít even remember what it was. It was good and I was going to try and force it down, but I wised up and decided better not to completely stuff myself so that I could enjoy the rest of my day.



So thatís it for my Food pictures from the 2009 Food & Wine Festival. Next up Celebrity Chefs, and in just about a week 2010 pictures!

So they finally posted the schedule for the demos and tastings! There are a lot of Food Network Personalities, plus a few that they are really scraping the barrel but whatever, check it out! I'm going to see how many I can get out and see without too many trips outside of what I already have planned. A lot depends on DP, she's not nearly as into this as I am so we'll see what happens.

Cool, I'm glad we're reading into each other's posts, I need to subscribe to your WDW F&W thing, but haven't done it yet.

I have a neat surprise that until it's for sure, I don't wan't to announce it, but come Monday I might have an other addition to my F&W adventures!

I just read your whole report, and it was just wonderful. Thanks!

I was there last year during the festival. So much fun stuff, but didn't get to do much except try some extra goodies.

I'm with you on the posting of the schedules and visiting chefs. I have been looking and looking, and finally found the something of a schedule yesterday. I was so discouraged, cuz the one chef both my DH I wanted to see is Guy Fieri. He is already scheduled for this weekend, and we can't make it work. How is one supposed to plan? And I only found the schedule for this weekend. Nothing else is listed yet.

You are lucky that you live close by. For us, it needs to be a little more planned.

Hope you have a wonderful time this year. Looking forward to your report.

Here is a link where you can download the full schedule: Schedule

I agree, it really should have been posted sooner. I've only looked at this weekend in detail. Mostly I want to know when the celebrity chefs are there. I'll see if we can see Guy Fieri this weekend. I'd also like to see Sunny Anderson and Anne Burrell, but we'll see if I can get out there that often. I do have three weekends planned to stay over, but can't remember if any of the chefs I want to see are there those weekends.

All the chefs I rubeed elbows with

One of my favorite things about the F&W Festival is all the Food Network Chefs that we can meet up with over the course of the Festival. Over the past years Iíve had the good fortune to meet up with some great chefs at the Food and Wine Festival. Here are some people Iíve met up with over the past couple years.

This was in 2008 when Guy Fieri did a dinner at the Napa Rose restaurant



This is Chef Marcel St. Pierre the executive Chef at Club 33



This is Chef Andrew Sutton from Napa Rose



This is Keeghan Gerhard from Food Network Challenge



And hereís me with Iron Chef Cat Cora



And Hunky Chef Robert Irvine from Dinner Impossible
