Greenwich Wine and Food Festival 2015

The Greenwich Wine and Food Festival is one of the Connecticut food events to attend every year. This year over 5,500 people attended four days worth of fun activities all in the name food, wine and raising money for Paul Newman's Hole In The Wall Gang Camp. We attended Saturday's Culinary Village event and had an absolute blast tasting food and drinks from over 150 food and beverage vendors, watching demos from celebrity chefs, seeing Little Big Town perform and reconnecting with some of our favorite Connecticut chefs. Our photo recap of the day is below, so you can all see fun, mouth watering moments yourself.

   Fleisher's  demos are always a highlight of the event. This year they showed how to butcher half a cow (which is insane and amazing to watch).
