ast year, Donna Covrett, former Cincinnati Magazine dining editor, and Courtney Tsitouris, a food writer, designer and producer, launched the inaugural Cincinnati Food + Wine Classic, a three-day event designed to, as they say, “capture the energy and enthusiasm of the Midwest’s dynamic food and beverage scene.” In other words, it was three days of drinking, feasting, brunching and learning in Washington Park.
The event was a huge success, by all accounts, with more than 2,000 people in attendance from the Midwest and as far away as California. So the Classic is returning this weekend with a collection of more than 100 nationally recognized chefs, brewers, sommeliers, artisans and food personalities — Esquire magazine’s alcohol expert David Wondrich, food writer Keith Pandolfi (Saveur, Eater) and familiar local favorites like Jean-Robert de Cavel, Daniel Wright and Jose Salazar, to name a few.
