Albany Food And Wine Festival

Last minute, District and I decided to go to the Albany Food and Wine Festival on Friday.  I had no idea what to expect but was so impressed with the amazing display of locally available food and beverages.  All of the best of the Capital Region were available for tasting and you know I just couldn't say no to that!

Oh hello my loves!  Just all of the very best Cider Belly Donuts in a tower.  A thing of beauty!  The maple are out of this world!

Hudson Whiskey has quickly found a place in my heart.  Not only because it tastes amazing, but the company also sources locally grown corn and uses green energy.  I'm. A. Fan. 

I don't have a photo of the treats from Druthers but they were delicious and their chef was hands down the nicest person at the event.  Kind and gregarious and happy to explain everything.  

Everything we tried was so beautiful!  I also got a kick out of the doll sized utensils we were using.  Because no matter how old I get, little things will forever amuse me.

Same recipe they began using in 1870.  

It was fun to watch this French chef make a simple but delicious frog legs dish. And even more fun to taste!

I never really got on the rose train with the rest of the world but this was really delicious!

And finally, a little snap of me and District, happy as can be getting to taste a bit of everything on a Friday evening.  Thanks for bringing me as your date, sweet friend!  Such a great event!

How was your weekend?  Did you do anything fun and different?
