10th Annual Veggie U Food and Wine Celebration

The Veggie U Food and Wine Celebration (F&W Celebration) can best be described as a unique opportunity to sample culinary masterpieces of world renowned chefs, whose creative fare is matched with amazing wine pairings, at the rustic riverside retreat known as the Culinary Vegetable Institute. The grounds are alive on this summer Saturday with the aromas and flavors of the world?s best cuisine, food demonstrations, wine education and samplings, and the chance to contribute to a great cause through the unique offerings of the silent and live auctions. This annual fundraiser benefits Veggie U, a non-profit children?s education program that teaches the importance of nutrition and sustainable agriculture by providing interactive lesson plans with a classroom garden kit to elementary schools and special needs students.www.VeggieUFoodandWine.com419.499.7500The Veggie U Food and Wine Celebration (F&W Celebration) can best be described as a unique opportunity to sample culinary masterpieces of world renowned chefs, whose creative fare is matched with amazing wine pairings, at the rustic riverside retreat known as the Culinary Vegetable Institute.
