What’s to eat at Winefest

There’s just not room in the Go! section to list some of the most important information about Winefest – what each of the restaurants there will be serving. So as a public service, I’m listing them here. Warning: Reading past here will result in hunger. (P.S.: If you’re going to the sold-out Winefest Walkabout on […]

Lots of foodie fun at this weekend’s Women’s Fair

I like the Women’s Fair. I’ve been going to it for years and I’m always amazed by the sheer amount of STUFF the organizers pack into Century II. There’s good shopping, live haircuts, as-seen-on-TV demos, tons of freebies (my favorite are the shampoo samples) and tons of food-related exhibitors. In past years, my friends Carrie […]

Wichita loves its wine. So much so that I’m in the planning stages of adding a wine feature to this blog. (Let me know if you have any ideas.) In the meantime, there’s a wine tasting coming up this week. Carrabba’s at 3409 N. Rock Road, which puts on monthly wine samplings, will offer the […]

Did someone say limoncello bread pudding?

Carrabba’s proprieter Joe Parten has been telling me for a while that his restaurant was about to add some new seasonal specials to the menu. But he didn’t happen to mention that one of them would be LIMONCELLO BREAD PUDDING. Does this sound beyond fabulous to anyone but me? Among the other specials Carrabba’s will […]

A report from the meatloaf front lines

I had more fun than I thought possible at this Saturday’s Loaf Off, a meatloaf competition that fundraiser for Make-A-Wish that made The Anchor smell sooooooo goooooood. I had the pleasure of serving as a judge at the event, along with chef Tanya Tandoc and local Food God Joe Stumpe. We sampled and sampled and […]
