New Orleans Wine and Food Experience 2013: The Trip to Culinary Bountiful

NEW ORLEANS--There are few events to compare to the annual New Orleans Wine
and Food Experience. Others may boast more celebrity chefs and wider attendance, but few can dispute the fact that the festival, now celebrating its 21st Anniversary Year, occurs in a place where food and drink are celebrated every day of the year in grand style!

That fact was made abundantly clear at the Grand Tasting Sessions and NOWFE Seminars that filled the weekend celebration. Local chefs teamed with wine producers and wine experts from around the world to crteate a unique expression of taste and terroir that firmly cemented New Orleans' reputation as the culinary epicenter of America.

Here now are the images of the people and events that made this year's wine and food experience an epic event.
