Save The Date : June 1 & 2, 2013 Montclair Food & Wine Festival @MtcFoodAndWine

Great news about the long-awaited Montclair Food & Wine Festival: the exciting two-day event is now confirmed for June 1st and 2nd, 2013 at the historic Woman's Club of Upper Montclair. This landmark charitable festival will mark the inauguration of what is anticipated to be an annual event.

A non-profit organization powered by a volunteer core that believes in giving back to the community, the Montclair Food & Wine Festival (MFWF) will be establishing a scholarship fund for a local student who exhibits merit and financial need to further their culinary education. The MFWF will also be donating a portion of the proceeds from the event to the St. Joseph's Children's Hospital Center for Feeding and Swallowing and to the Partners in Health Foundation.

MFWF creator Melody Kettle, "Montclair has long been considered the 'unofficial' food capital of New Jersey, so we're thrilled that lovers of food, wine and spirits from all over the state will be able to gather here for two days of exceptional food and wine tasting experiences."

On the evening of June 1st, guests will gather for the Grand Tasting, where they will sample the culinary offerings of many of the state's finest restaurants. Gary's Wine & Marketplace (Bernardsville, Madison, Wayne) will be presenting wines from around the world and Halcyon's Seafood Brasserie will be offering outstanding spirits

On day two -- June 2nd, 2013 -- guests will experience a tour-de-force of collaborative culinary wizardry: Michael Carrino of Pig & Prince in Lackawanna Plaza; Ariane Duarte of CulinAriane; Ryan DePersio of Fascino, Bar Cara and NICO Kitchen + Bar; Mitchell Altholz of Highlawn Pavilion; Francesco Palmieri of the Orange Squirrel; and Zod Arifai of Blu, Next Door, and daryl, will all join forces on an extraordinary dinner for attendees.
