A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend the 9th annual Pebble Beach Food and Wine Festival. If you aren’t familiar, PBFW is four action-packed days worth of epicurean events, featuring some of the best chefs and wineries in the world. Events include culinary demos, beverage seminars, lavish lunches, grand tastings and epic dinners. Guests have intimate access to chefs and winemakers, and best of all, unlike other food festivals, PBFW is set on a world famous golf course against the beautiful backdrop of the golden California coast. If you’re looking for an unforgettable foodie adventure, I can’t think of any better way to spend a long weekend.
