SPAC Adds Celebrity Chefs to Food/Wine Festival
One of my favorite events to kick off fall is the Saratoga Wine & Food Festival. On a beautiful day, walking around the Saratoga State Park grounds, eating delicious food, trying great wines, and now they’ve announced the celebrity chefs that will be joining the festivities.
SPAC’s annual Saratoga Wine & Food Festival will be on September 7-9, according to the Times Union. This year, celebrity chefs David Burke and Todd English will be joining the festival.
Chef David Burke sounds familiar locally because earlier this year, he became the culinary director for The Adelphi Hotel as well as it’s sibling restaurant Salt & Char. He will be a judge during the Fired Up! competition on September 7, a competitor during the Grand Tasting on September 8, as well as co-hosting a brunch on September 9.
Chef Todd English has been featured on his own show on PBS “Food Trip with Todd English,” as well as a number of restaurants in New York City, Boston, Florida, and more.
Former Red Sox player David Ortiz will also be returning for the Fired Up! competition as well as a meet and greet and VIP session. You can buy tickets to various events over the three days on the SPAC website.
