2010 Wine and Food Week coming soon June 14 through 20 should be heaven for wine and food lovers, when more than 10,000 will toast the area’s largest annual epicurean extravaganza, the sixth annual Wine and Food Week. This event brings together renowned chefs and more than 500 wines at 40 exciting events held in venues at The Woodlands and throughout the Houston area. Live chef demonstrations, hands-on classes, a wine auction, music, entertainment, shopping, wine education seminars and casual and fine-wine dining experiences fill this week of food and wine. The three largest events are: the H-E-B Wine Walk at Market Street, a taste and stroll experience in a European-style center featuring wine and light bites at more than 40 retail stores; Sips, Suds & Sliders, a new Texas-size celebration featuring live music, specialty beers, Texas wines and a gourmet slider competition; and the ultimate wine evening, the Wine Rendezvous Grand Tasting and Texas Monthly Chef Showcase, where guests sample delectable cuisine and hundreds of wines as chefs representing more than 50 restaurants compete for Wine & Food Week’s Chef of Chefs Award. One of the most casual and enjoyable events is the H-E-B Wine Walk held at Market Street in The Woodlands June 17 from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. Take a leisurely stroll, enjoy Market Street’s Old World charm and boutique shopping, and sample food and wine from multiple venues positioned throughout the venue. In addition to more than 150 wines, this year’s Wine Walk will include more than 30 specialty beers. Tickets for the H-E-B Wine Walk are $50 in advance and, if available, $55 at the event. Most of the 40 events are held in The Woodlands, with other wine and food experiences held at venues throughout Houston. Wine & Food Week events and auctions benefit the culinary arts program at Houston Community College Systems Foundation, the Signature Series Literacy efforts of The John Cooper School, Swing for a Cure, and The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands Pavilion.
