How do you make the region's largest culinary showcase even better? By adding beer and a cooking competition. That's exactly what the organizers of the 4th Annual Finger Lakes Cork & Fork decided to do this year.
Head out to Seneca Falls and take part in this two-day culinary celebration that is sure to cause you a foodgasm or two. With a number of local farms, wineries, chefs, restaurants, caterers, breweries, and distilleries on hand selling food and drink, you'll have plenty of eating options.
New this year is the Partners & Pairings competition, which will include judges and festival attendees voting on their favorite dishes and wine pairings from a variety of competitors. The event runs Friday, September 20, 6-9 p.m., and Saturday, September 21, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. at Rodman Lott & Son Farms, 2973 Route 414, Seneca Falls. Tickets are $50 for both days, or $25 for Saturday only. Visit fingerlakescorkandfork.com for more info.
