Okanagan Wine Festival ready to go in May

What started in 1994 as a kick start to the wine season in a fledging one day festival with just 16 wineries, has blossomed two decades later into a much anticipated ten day celebration of local food and wine. Now with 119 wineries, over 70 culinary and wine events, a Best of Varietal competition, and a delicious partnership with Dairy Farmers of Canada; the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival offers a uniquely Okanagan experience for every palate.

The ideal start to the season, spring in the Okanagan is an exciting time of anticipation. With budburst in the vineyards and blossoms throughout the Valley’s extensive orchards, it is a picturesque way to experience the region’s burgeoning artisanal wine and culinary industry.

Some delectable new festivities this year include: the Comforts of Grilled Cheese and Wine presented by Dairy Farmers of Canada, apprentice chefs competing in the Cheesiest Sweet and Savoury Competition, a Bubbly Bootcamp, and grand openings of the newest architecturally distinctive tasting rooms, to name but a few of the highlights.

One of the Society’s signature events starts the entire 10 days. The Best of Varietal Wine Awards is on Thursday May 1, with a record 32 wine varietal categories judged by 15 B.C. sommeliers and wine experts along with a tasting showcasing the winners.

This is followed by the iconic WestJet Wine Tastings on Friday May 2 and Saturday May 3, which offers live music and a boisterous atmosphere with wineries from across the entire Valley all under one roof.

A more intimate event with a hint of wine education, the Blind Wine and Cheese Soiree presented by Valley First on Saturday May 10, is a perfect opportunity to test your palate in a fun environment with local wineries and Dairy Farmers of Canada.

“Dairy Farmers of Canada has a long standing partnership with the Okanagan Wine Festival’s David Beaudoin with Dairy Farmers of Canada leading a cheese and wine seminar. This has been excellent in providing us the ability to develop several customized events showcasing Canadian cheese made from 100% Canadian milk as well as our All you Need is Cheese brand,” said Gianna Ciancio, program manager, marketing for the Dairy Farmers of Canada.

“For 20 years the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival has helped put B.C. wines on the map,” said Premier Christy Clark and MLA for Westside-Kelowna. “Congratulations and best wishes for this special 20th year celebration.”

The wine culture of the Okanagan offers something for everyone from the foodie to the oenophile to the budding enthusiast.

Over 7,500 guests are expected to participate over the 10 days of activities this spring. From farm to table winery dinners, barbeques and picnics in stunning settings, the Spring Okanagan Wine Festival brings visitors face to face with the chefs, winemakers and growers who have not only built the Okanagan’s wine and culinary industry but those poised on the leading edge of change. With the Okanagan Valley really coming of age on the world stage it’s time to visit and see how the Spring Festival has hit its stride. Can you really miss the 20th Spring Okanagan Wine Festival this year?The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society announces its 20th year of spring wine festivities from May 1-11, 2014.The Okanagan Wine Festivals Society announces its 20th year of spring wine festivities from May 1-11, 2014.

Street Eats Food Truck Festival at Salt River Fields on January 25 and 26 …

1-montana-bar-b-q-co.jpgDiana LustigThe long ribs plate from Montana Bar-B-Q Co. at last year’s event.By now you food truck fans should be gearing up for what’s become the biggest food truck festival to hit the Valley each year. The Street Eats Food Truck Festival, presented by New Times, will bring more than 50 trucks from around Arizona and the country to Salt River Fields on Saturday, January 25 and Sunday, January 26. Attendees will also be able to catch live music, eating contests, and cooking demonstrations.

So you want to know what trucks will be strutting their stuff? Read on.

See also: Street Eats Food Truck Festival, Day One: Shorter Lines, Better Organized Than Last Year, and We Share Our Favorite (and Not So Favorite) Tastes

The festival will run from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days. This year trucks have come from states including Nevada and California to serve up everything from milk products and lobster grilled cheese to fry bread and fried chicken.

Throughout the day you’ll be able to see others people stuff their faces with food during Twinkie eating, hot dog eating, pie eating, sandwich eating, and (perhaps the cruelest of them all) saltine eating contests. They’ll be held hourly from 12:45 to 4:45 on the EATERAZ Contest Stage. You can view the schedule of contests here.

This year, parking for the event will be free — or rather, $3 of your admission ticket will be designated for parking expenses. A nice change.

General admission tickets cost $12 a person and children under 12 are free. VIP tickets cost $50 each and include access to a VIP lounge, six drink vouchers, and four food tokens. To purchase tickets visit the Street Eats website.

You can check out the list of participating trucks on the next page.

Dec 16-22 Food Truck Schedule and News for Dallas

EasySlider_people

Highlight Food Truck of the Week: Easy Slider Truck

I’ve sung the praises of Easy Slider many times before.  Most recently, it was selected as D Magazine’s Best Food Truck, both critics favorite and fan favorite.  When it comes to all the necessary ingredients for running a food truck, owner/operators Caroline Perini and Miley Holmes had it figured out from the get-go.  They started their first truck two years ago, in December 2011 and added #2 in November 2012 primarily for catering.  If you want to try food from any food truck in Dallas/Ft. Worth, make this one be your first.

Start with a Roadside (beef, bacon, BBQ sauce, jalapenos, french fried onions,  or Sweet and Lowdown (beef, bacon, goat cheese, strawberry jam) or the Black and Blue (beef, bacon, and blue cheese slaw).  For most food trucks I would suggest staying with the tried-and-true menu items.  Not with Easy Slider Truck.  If they have something new, try it.  And don’t forget the “suicide”, one of everything on the menu.

Here is your schedule for the week.  Remember to check Facebook and Twitter feeds.  Lots of trucks are taking the next two weeks off.

This Food Truck Uses Locally Sourced Maple Syrup to Help Formerly …

After spending three years teaching classes to kids at the Riker’s Island adolescent unit, teacher Jordyn Lexton grew accustomed to seeing many of her paroled students simply return back to prison.

Incarcerated children as young as 16 are recognized as adults in the state of New York, which means they frequently leave prison with permanent felony records. Often prevented from getting a job or furthering their education, their chances of successfully integrating back into society are grim. 

Lexton wanted to help break that cycle and do it in the most nourishing way possible—with food trucks. Along with entrepreneur Annie Bickerton, the pair founded Drive Change, a social enterprise that’s launching a series of food trucks in New York City and hiring formerly incarcerated kids to operate them.

Drive Change’s inaugural project, a truck called Snow Day, debuted on December 8, in Brooklyn’s Naval Yard. Its menu is packed with treats—like maple grilled cheese, pancake poppers, and pulled pork sliders—that integrate locally sourced maple syrup from Crown Maple in Dutchess County. 

The truck was formerly owned by New York City’s utility company, ConEd, and Inhabitat reports that it was refurbished with the help of Brooklyn-based Situ Studio, whose team madeover its exterior in a snowflake motif using reclaimed wood pieces and LED lighting. 

Lexton’s goal is to not only provide her kids with a paycheck and an appreciation for “farm-to-truck-ready” food, but also to change popular opinions that children who’ve been through the prison system aren’t deserving of a second chance.

She told MSNBC, “We’re giving people the opportunity to really interact with the young people in our program, face-to-face,” she said. “And to have that with the source of this beautiful food…is something that’s hopefully going to dispel that preconceived notion of what it means to be a formerly incarcerated young person.”

The inspiration to marry food and social justice came to Lexton when she was still teaching at Riker’s. Noticing that her kids were especially enthusiastic about a culinary arts class in the school program there, she was moved by the “amazing amount of pride that young people had preparing their own food, [and] serving food, and it just stuck with me.”

In anticipation of the launch, the former teacher spent seven months learning the food truck business by working on one herself in New York City. 

Now that it’s made its debut, Snow Day is set to launch regular routes through neighborhoods in lower Manhattan beginning the first week of January.

As Drive Change head chef, Roy Waterman—who was himself incarcerated at 19, and today is the owner of a catering company—told MSNBC, “Food transcends everything—race divides, any sort of discrimination people have towards each other—food happens to just bring everybody together.”

If You’re Too Cool for Addison Oktoberfest, We Didn’t Want You There Anyway

IMG_2757.jpgSUBURBAN ELK BRATS MMM.You kids these days and your super-trendy downtown Dallas beer festivals. Untapped. North Texas Beer Festival. Dallas BrewFest. Big Texas Beer Fest. Oh, there isn’t one this weekend? No problem, because you can just stroll in to one of your 187 microbreweries around town on any given Saturday, expecting (EXPECTING?!) there to be food trucks and live music and collectable mugs and well-designed t-shirts that you’re too cool to wear. I know.

Well, gather round children, and let me tell you a tale. See, it was just a few years ago when Dallas didn’t have microbreweries, or craft beer festivals, or cupcake ATMs, or even grilled-cheese food trucks. There was no Klyde Warren Park. When we wanted to wander around outside and drink beer with 10s of 1000s of other Dallas-ites, we had to drive our asses to (dramatic pause) the SUBURBS. What you know as the title of an Arcade Fire album was once a destination for outdoor fun and shenanigans.

And guess what? Addison’s Oktoberfest was and still is pretty great. After extending multiple invites to people that are now apparently too good to travel north of Walnut Hill, my wife and sons, along with another friend and her son, took advantage of the most perfect weather that Dallas can muster and got lost in the aisles of goofy art, smoked meat, polka bands, and strollers.

I like Oktoberfest, because it is 100 percent family friendly and also 100 percent normal to watch old people drunkenly enter a raffle for a Texas Rangers-themed Camaro. Despite the jubilance, everyone that I saw remained in control. I didn’t see any strangers shouting things at each other or dude-bros messing up high-fives. It’s the ‘burbs, after all.

After looking at the map, we all agreed that the 30,000 square-foot air-conditioned tent ought to be our first stop, so we could sit down and figure out a plan. Upon walking in, my wife’s friend burst out laughing and immediately turned around. Imagine a clown car, but instead of a car it was a 30,000 square-foot air-conditioned tent and instead of circus music there was polka music. (Which maybe is based on polka music? Check wikipedia.) We decided instead to set up camp near the outside stage and watched multiple bands, along with a beer barrel race.

IMG_2738.jpgSUBURBAN PASTRIES MMM.I was told that the city was expecting 75,000 guests, but wouldn’t be surprised if the good weather brought out somewhere closer to 90,000. The worst line was the line to buy food tickets; otherwise, I didn’t wait more than 5 minutes for anything, though we did leave around 6:30p to avoid multiple tired-child melt-downs.

Without question, the best thing I ate was an elk bratwurst with jalapeno and cheddar. Flavorful and perfectly cooked, the jalapeno was subtle enough to avoid overpowering the distinct taste of the elk meat. When I showed up, they were also selling chicken and pheasant sausages with spinach, but the wheat beer, strudel, pork shank, and potato pancake were already weighing me down and someone had to chase my two-and-a-half year old away from the accordion player (don’t want the kid getting any ideas).

Speaking of strudel, apparently I’ve been missing out on it my entire life. Maybe this is common knowledge, but streusel is a generic term for crumb topping, and strudel is the most delicious pastry in the world. We picked the almond-apricot, and it turned out to be a sweet sponge cake, filled with apricots, then wrapped in a flaky pastry and covered in powdered sugar. Cronuts be damned, the Germans have cornered the market on the baked-good mash-up.

One thing the festival could use more of, ironically? Beer. In the midst of the Biergarten, beer tents, sweet steins, and every single vendor that served food also pouring beer, the choices were sparse. Paulaner, as a main sponsor, dominates the event. Like some sort of jerk, I asked the guy at the first tent what sort of beer was available. “Light, Dark, and Wheat.” Oh, but. Well. Wheat, obviously, but I was still disappointed. I searched for other options, and did find some in the only building used at the festival, hidden behind ski ball and HD TVs showing college football. But, it was a “Beers of the World” table pouring some Brazilian beer and Tsingtao. Wofür? It would be nice if the überschütten of German-inspired Texas breweries were better represented, or acknowledged, at a gigantic celebration of Germany and beer in Texas.

All in all, though, Addison Oktoberfest did us right. It might not be as tattooed and skinny-jeaned as the downtown festivals, but for a fun afternoon celebrating the arrival of some semblance of fall, it’s still on my annual list. Plus, no one glares at you for pushing a double stroller.
