There are some very big food events coming up soon that you may want to get your tickets to now before they sell out. First is the 17th annual Taste of the South End which will take place Tuesday, March 6, 2012. Attendees will enjoy small plate culinary creations from at least 40 of the South End’s most vibrant restaurants. The popular event will also feature live cooking demonstrations and extensive wine tasting and beer sampling. Taste of the South End takes place from 7 to 9:30 p.m. at the Boston Center for the Arts Cyclorama at 539 Tremont Street in Boston. Tickets are $95; VIP admission is $150. Proceeds benefit AIDS Action.
Next up is a dual event, the Boston Seafood Expo and New England Food Expo, which, together are probably the largest food event, in sheer volume, that we host in Boston. The dates are March 11-13 and these events take place simultaneously at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center in South Boston. This massive exhibition brings chefs, food purveyors and foodies of all kinds together from literally all over the world.
On Sunday March 11, I've been asked by Shucks Maine Lobster to judge their lobster recipe competition! Uni Restaurant Sashimi Chef Chris Gould will face off against Chef Pascal Sauton of Portland, OR’s Milwaukie Kitchen, Chef David MacLennan of Latitude 41 in Columbus, OH, and Chef David Quintana of Kobe’s Kreations in Charlotte, NC. I'll be joining Carolyn Faye Fox, of The Improper Bostonian’s “Dish” column and a regular panelist on NPR's "Says You!" and Jean Kerr, editor-in-chief of Northeast Flavor, New England’s Food & Wine magazine to help pick the winner with the most inventive recipe.
Although both of these events take place at the same venue tickets need to be purchased separately. You can do so here:
