We got invited to check out the 8th Annual Food & Wine Classic at Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin resort.  I had the opportunity to work this two-day event back in 2014 (picture above) and it is a great event filled with lots of wine from around the world and a variety of culinary dishes from pastries to pasta.  Food & Wine Classic also offers eleven one-hour educational seminars if you would like to impress friends with your knowledge of wines, cocktails, beer, pasta-making, cheese pairing or the fine art of sushi and sake.  Due to inclement weather, Saturday’s event was moved inside to the resort’s convention room and the organizers did an amazing job with relocating everything just in time for the event.
