Jan 25, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
The 2013 Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair is set for April 24 - 28, marking the tenth year of irresistible food finds, wines, celebrity chefs, mixology and unabashed merriment.
According to a release, the event will celebrate a milestone birthday and is expected to attract more than 7,000 attendees over the five-day event. Proceeds support a permanent scholarship endowment at the University of Houston Conrad N. Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management.
The Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair has come to be one of the most anticipated culinary attractions of the year in Texas. Located in historic Sugar Land minutes from Houston proper, its multiple tastings, dinners, cooking demonstrations and seminars have gained a reputation for a rollicking good time where chefs share secrets, sommeliers get un-corked and attendees have exclusive access to the best food and wine available.
The event has its roots firmly planted in culinary history. Even its location in Sugar Land is a reverent nod to the fertile soil that has produced the sugar that has sweetened countless American kitchens, as Sugar Land, has been home to Imperial Sugar since its founding in 1843. The most attended event, Saturday's Sip & Stroll takes place on the grounds of the former Imperial Sugar factory and Char House, both of which are iconic images that dominated the flat plains for miles and spoke to the prosperity and entrepreneurial spirit of the region.
The five-day wine and food affair kicks off starts with a VIP dinner, followed by three days of events and pop, swizzle and stir tastings. Many of America's top regional chefs will be on hand for demonstrations.
