I am in a food coma. I am equally in a wine coma. Honestly, it's not a bad place to be. I just got back from the Newport Food & Wine Festival in gorgeous Newport, RI. This amazing event was in the backyard of the Marble House Mansion. That's right people. Former vacation home of the Vanderbilt's with the most amazing view of the ocean.Sounds like a perfect place to sip amazing wines and savor the most delectable cuisine Rhode Island has to offer.
1149 table and ate the most delicious pulled pork taco and pineapple salsa. Wow! How delicious. The taco shell was super crispy and the pork was not too sweet. The pineapple salsa added such great bright flavor.
I then found myself to the Buitoni table where I was able to sample their new chicken marsala ravioli! This made me smile because I was actually asked to brainstorm some recipes for this same ravioli! Boy was I happy to try some again. This ravioli was simply dressed with olive oil and Parmesan cheese. That's all it needed. How easy is that?
And last, but not least: Dessert. These cupcakes were orgasmic. Did I just go there? Yes, I did. Both my husband and I just looked at each other after one bite and mutually understood in no words, these were the best cupcakes we had ever tasted. I stuck with my old reliable red velvet and my hubby ate a chocolate peanut butter cupcake with chocolate ganache. Seriously???If you are ever in Boston( or DC) please go to Georgetown Cupcakes. I know I will.
