IT MAY BE JUST OUTSIDE HOUSTON ITSELF, but once a year Sugar Land is the ultimate destination to celebrate the legions of epicurean traditions in the most ethnically diverse county in America. Sugar Land Wine & Food Affair, a four-day festival from April 6-9 consists of dinners, learning experiences, a Grand Tasting and a two-day Sip & Stroll. On Friday, tickets went on sale for this year’s event.
Partnered with IWSC Group North America, the 14th annual Sugar Land Wine and Food Affair is bringing a fusion of flavors to our city, connecting people and brands through experiences. Think international food fest paired with some of the finest wines, and encompassing a melting pot of African, Asian, Latino, European and Southwestern flavors.
The following day is a real education, when the soon-to-open Bacon Bros. Public House plays host for the Cured & Fermented Lunch from 12 to 2 p.m. There, chefs Kevin Ouzts and Joseph Zerwas will discuss their methods for curing everything from salumi and kimchi. Just kick back and allow sommelier Jason Tesauro to select the supreme complementary beverage pairing with your meal. Treat yo’ self to fermented foods of every strip, whether meat, vegetable or grape.
