Absolute Michigan is excited to have given away a pair of Two-Day Passes to the 2008 Epicurean Classic held in Traverse City, Michigan (note – tickets are still available!)
The Epicurean Classic is one of the premier annual celebrations of culinary artisanship, and your day passes will grant you access into all four cooking demo stages and the Tasting Pavilion on Friday, September 12 and Saturday, September 13, 2008! We’re talking TOTAL ACCESS to every cooking demo taking place on Friday and Saturday – nearly forty classes in all featuring chefs like Joyce Goldstein, Matthew Kenney, Joey Altman, Lori Narlock, Martha Foose, Brian Polcyn, Raghavan Iyer, Deborah Schneider, Danyel Couet, Diane Morgan, Wendy Rahamut, Don Yamauchi and more.
When you’re breathless and parched from watching chefs do their thing, wander into the Tasting Pavilion where you’ll find thirty-plus wine tables hosted by prestigious importers and wholesalers including Trinchero, Diageo, Terlato, Vin Divino, Moet-Hennessy, Wilson-Daniels, Ste. Michelle Wine Estates, Kobrand, Fosters, Icon Estates, Palm Bay, etc and – of course – a superb collection of Michigan wineries and winemakers from Leelanau, Old Mission and elsewhere will be on hand along. There will also be some fabulous brewers like Stella Artois, Jolly Pumpkin, New Holland, Sam Adams, and Short’s. Don’t forget the separate General Cigar tent outfitted this year with a Cuban lounge feel. Leo Peraza, the cigar roller is back again demonstrating the magical art of rolling whole leaves of ultra premium cigar tobacco, and the legendary creator of the Cohiba brand, Benji Menendez, too. Traverse City’s own Habana Cafe will be muddling and shaking mojitos and serving Cuban apps with the General guys, too.
