Fork Fest: A Feast to Remember

Still drooling over the assorted samples at Fork Fest this year? Me too! This year’s Fork Fest covered all of the bases for fall food cravings. Flavors from The Winchester, Reserve Wine & Food, and Daddy Pete’s BBQ all the way to Malamiah Juice Bar and Koeze were sampled Thursday night and I already can’t wait until next year!

I walked into Romence Gardens & Greenhouses and the glow from the sunset warmed the room as delectable scents surrounded me. The excitement of seemingly endless options encouraged me to fill my plate within the first five minutes and maintain pace as I checked each table in the greenhouse. Everywhere I looked, people were nodding their heads to the fun folk music or enjoying food by the forkful.

The array of local beverages to choose from helped cleanse my palate between meals. Long Road Distillers, Brewery Vivant, Vander Mill, and Fenn Valley Winery provided refreshments that complemented the scrumptious bites and treats.

The gastronomic gathering, Fork Fest, nourishes and inspires attendees for the coming season with its warm atmosphere and savory experience. Thanks to the contributions from local restaurants, CSAs, and the team at Local First, Fork Fest will continue to be the fall food event that the community (and I) looks forward to year after year.

My best advice for anyone who wishes to attend next year’s Fork Fest is to take your time! There is a wide selection of samples to try and there is no need to rush your amusement. Grab a plate, fill it up, and enjoy some music and conversation. Repeat 3x.
