WAHFE at the Downtown Food & Wine Festival

As mentioned in a previous post, I was at the Orlando Food Blog Forum a few weeks back.  Well, in my "goodie bag" was an invite for me to attend the Downtown Food and Wine Festival!  And since we've never been, I figured this was a great opportunity. As you can see from the over cast sky, it was on the verge of raining.  And we weren't there long before it actually did rain!

I stopped by the JW Marriott booth, not because I recognized my friend's husband Eric, who is the Executive Chef at the World Marriott, but because of the beautiful bottles of homemade pickles!  My kids wanted to try a pickle, and when I went to ask, I said, "huh, I know this guy".

And then we had to try the Broccoli Rabe sandwich.  No, it wasn't on the menu, but Eric knows we're veg eaters so he made this one special for us.  I had a few bites and then my kids devoured the rest.  I guess I should have asked for two sandwiches!  It doesn't look like much but peppers here but this was the best I could do for a photo with crowds of people walking around us.

As I always say, never be afraid to ask for a vegan option wherever you go.  You just might be pleasantly surprised :)
