Baltimore's Great Taste Convivium

Come all Ye Foodies!

It’s about food, it’s about drink, it’s about cooking, it’s about all things I love and that is the Great Taste Show. It is being held at the renovated Masonic Temple on Charles Street called the Tremont Grand on Saturday, February 23rd from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.

They have three key cooking demonstrations, the Food Network’s Warren Brown, PBS’s John Shield and Bravo’s Top Chef participant from season two – Michael Midgley..yeah you know him, the guy who wore the baseball cap backwards. I have Chef Michael Midgley’s list of ingredients and it calls for a 24 pack of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer – aren’t you curious, I know I am?

Lots and lots to drink. If you don’t drink, get the designated driver ticket for $20 or if you wish to imbibe its $50 - you can’t do one cooking class for that. Wine seminars by Tony Foreman and Monyka Berrocosa and Hugh Sisson from Clipper City with a beer and cheese tasting. (you will be charged additional for these seminars)

The city’s leading Italian restaurants will be sampling their wares, Sotto Sopra, Osteria Cinghiale and Pazza Luna plus other Baltimore restaurants. This is a great way to perk up a dreary, miserable February weekend.
Don't miss the panel presentation from Baltimore City Bloggers – Food Blogging 101. Come meet 10 of the city’s food bloggers (including me):

Baltimore Snacker
Black Coffee and a Donut
Coconut & Lime
Dining Dish
Kitchen Goddess
Mango & Ginger
Raspberry Eggplant
The Hungover Gourmet
Unique Culinary Adventures

You might see me floating around the big demo stage – I, along with some of my foodie friends are styling and assisting the talent with their demos. I know you are saying “Kool Beans.”

I was behind the scenes last year as well. A friend snapped this picture of me on stage with Sara Moulton – it must have been from her cell phone considering the quality. I do like the distant, fuzzy images of myself – it is like Doris Day, who I believe used Vaseline or gauze on the camera lens.
