USA Today has just printed a short, but interesting article on how Culinary Festivals are becoming almost like political dinners--with the opportunity to rub elbows with celebrities (in this case, chefs).
Most importantly, the article features a sidebar highlighting the very best "culinary festivals" one can eat their way through here in the States. One can enjoy the International Mead Festival in Lakewood, Colorado (Feb 9-10), the South Beach Wine and Food Festival in Miami, Florida (Feb 22-25), the Taste of Vail in Colorado (April 11-15) and numerous other yummy culinary locations.
