SD Bay Wine & Food Festival at the Marriott Marquis Marina Hotel
Now that Fall is officially here, we bet you can’t wait for the weather to cool down enough to bring out those scarves and coats. Even if it’s still a bit too warm out there, some of you are already pulling out your Fall wardrobes in anticipation. Well, like all of you, San Diego Entertainer and Lifestyles Television can’t wait to ring in the new season, and have therefore decided to host this month’s show from the Marriott Marquis Marina Hotel. As one of San Diego’s most iconic resorts, resting in the middle of downtown, the Marina Hotel was the perfect setting for us to chat about all of our favorite topics, including food and travel!
The Marriott Marquis Marina Hotel is known all over the city for their tasty gourmet cuisine, made complete by the gorgeous waterfront view. Responsible for their great food is Chef Aron Schwartz, who showed us how to prepare the best butternut squash soup you will ever taste. If you want to impress your friends and family this Fall, while learning all about this impressive chef and his best cooking tips and tricks, make sure to pull out your best cooking utensils and bookmark this month’s episode.
Why was it such a good idea to host this month’s episode at the Marriott Marquis Marina Hotel? Well, because in the show we told you all about the “San Diego Bay Wine and Food Festival” event, which takes place from November 14 to 18. Overall there are more than 30 events going on at any given time, with 200 wineries, breweries, and spirits from all over the world making their names known. Even more impressive is that over 35% of the event’s participants fly in specially, including culinary geniuses, master sommeliers, and some of California’s most legendary winemakers.
If you’re a fan of wine and food, make sure to check the event out because we’re pretty certain it will be worth your while. You may also want to know that if you decide to attend the event, your entrance fee will be put towards a great cause. More than $240,000 has been put towards scholarships for those interested in studying culinary arts, so you may help the next world’s greatest chef get his or her start! If you’ve been thinking about dabbling yourself, there will be some cooking classes available for you to try out. There will also be wine tasting, reserve tasting, and a celebrity luncheon. Just who will be there? Well, you’ll have to watch to find out. Another reason to tune in is Chef Bernard, who showed us an exclusive preview of what we can all expect at the celebrity luncheon.
