Tickle Your Taste Buds at the 4th Annual Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic

Hi everyone!

Our favorite food & wine event of the year is coming up this weekend on October 18 and 19th, the Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic! The event is in it’s 4th year, and this will be our third year attending.

The Swan and Dolphin Food & Wine Classic take place on the walkway between the Dolphin and the Swan Resorts, and offers delicious food, wine and beer sampling. Celebrity chef Todd English is there each year, meeting guests at his bluezoo booth. Tickets can be purchased ala carte, or in causeway tickets that allow for unlimited sampling. Restaurants from the Swan and Dolphin hotels, including Shula’s, will present delectable samples like Carved Prime Rib with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes (Shula’s, both nights); Open Face Tomato & Handcrafted Mozzarella Sandwich w/Sweet Basil, Locatelli (Garden Grove, Friday); and a different sushi each night by Kimono’s. The menu for each night is on the Swan and Dolphin website, and hotel packages are available.
