Now that I’ve eaten and drank my way through every stop at the Food and Wine Festival, I’ve compiled a list of my favorites.  Mind you, I’ve enjoyed something from each booth, but have not tried everything.  So, if one of your favorites is missing from the list below let me know!

DRINKS!

Best Red Wine- The Wolftrap Red in Africa

Best White Wine- Mohua Sauvignon Blanc in New Zealand

Best Bubbles- Sparkling Pomegranate Kir in France (I realize it’s technically a cocktail, but I’m counting it)

Best Cocktail-  Frozen Szarlotka in Poland

Best Beer- This one is a toss up between the Schofferhofer at Brewer’s Collection and Widmer Brothers Brewing Alchemy Ale.  So, they both win

FOOD!

Best Chicken Dish- This one was a hard one as chicken is not very heavily represented this year, but my pick would have to be the Lemongrass Chicken Curry with Coconut & Jasmine Rice in Singapore.

Best Value- This one was a difficult call, but I’m going to say the Steamed Green Lip Mussels with Garlic Butter & Toasted Bread Crumbs in New Zealand.  Where else can you get mussles for $3.50?

So there you have it.  Those are my picks so far for the 2013 Food and Wine Festival.  The festival is going on until Nov. 11th so I’m sure I’ll be back and this list could change, but as of right now these are my favorites.  Did I miss anything good?
