This past month I had a great time at the Palm Desert Food and Wine Festival in Palm Desert located next to the El Paseo Shopping district. Every year the Food and Wine Festival of Palm Desert takes place off of Larkspur Lane in a big white tent that is put up for Fashion Week in Palm Desert the week prior. This was my second time at the festival. I went to the festival last in 2011.
The first time I attended the festival, I attended on a Saturday and I personally think that day was a bit better for me. This time we headed up on a Sunday and got there a little later and the vendors were a bit more sparse. However, the vendors I did visit I thoroughly enjoyed and I wanted to share a small overview of the festival so if any of you happen to be in the Palm Desert area, you can check out a variety of these delicious restaurants to visit.
My highlight of the event was meeting Roy Choi of the Kogi Bbq, a Korean Bbq truck and he also owns and runs a variety of restaurants in Los Angeles including Chego, A-Frame, Sunny Spot and soon to come Pot in Los Angeles. Some of my favorite wineries included Grgich Hills from the Rutherford/Napa area and Gundlach Bundschu from the Sonoma area. Please enjoy all of my pictures below.
