My visit to Taste of Ridgefield, a fantastic annual food and wine event in Ridgefield, Connecticut.
I’m going to confess from the start: I ate way too much when I visited Ridgefield, Connecticut last month, but if you’re going to attend a gourmet tasting event, you have to go “all in” and indulge! My friend invited me to join her for the 18th annual Taste of Ridgefield, a premier food and wine event hosted by the Ridgefield Rotary Club. Held at the historic Lounsbury House, the event featured displays from the area’s chefs, food artisans, and beverage purveyors. It was a great opportunity to sample some of the best culinary talent of the region, and support what I instantly perceived to be a warm and gracious community. Proceeds from Taste of Ridgefield benefit the Rotary Club’s scholarship fund, in addition to grants for a number of local organizations. Fabulous food in support of a great cause? What a wonderful way to spend a Sunday afternoon….
