The 2nd annual Cape Cod Life Food & Wine Festival kicks off this Sunday, May 31 and runs through June 6. The week-long festival will showcase the Cape’s best chefs and restaurants through a series of special events and receptions. Billy Costa, host of NECN’s "TV Diner'' program, will emcee the event for the second year and Chatham resident and master sabreur Kevin Howard will once again kick off the festiivites with an official champagne sabering ceremony. Proceeds will benefit the Arts Foundation of Cape Cod.
The week kicks off with a more traditional grand tasting, but from there gets a bit more personal as “Taste of Culture Receptions” will be held each evening in venues that capture Cape Cod’s richness in art, history, and culture. Guests will sample hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants paired with specially selected wines in rich settings. The schedule is online, and tickets for each reception are $20 each. The festival will come to a close with a food and wine tasting finale on Saturday, June 6 from 5-8 p.m. at the Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich. Tickets are $75 and will benefit the Heritage Museum and Gardens.
Tickets for all events can be purchased online or by calling 800-595-4TIX (4849).
