It’s the food and cocktail event of the year… Faith Middleton’s Food Schmooze® Martini Competition.
Now in its sixth year, this WNPR fundraiser attracts hundreds of passionate foodies and mixology enthusiasts ready to sample the most decadent and creative concoctions Connecticut’s restaurants and bars can dream up. All in the quest for the taking the title of Official Martini of The Food Schmooze®!
The party has moved to a new location – The Mashantucket Pequot Museum & Research Center! Sample from over 30 mixologists and restaurants as they show off their best martini creations and delicious foods. What will our chefs and bartenders make to top last year?
Dress is festive, but don’t forget to bring your dancing shoes because the D.J. will be playing the tunes that keep the dance floor pumping.
Join the entire Food Schmooze® Team, including Senior Contributors Chris Prosperi, Alex Province and Mark Raymond, Senior Producer Robyn Doyon-Aitken, and of course, Faith Middleton herself, for a party you don’t want to miss!
Once again, Food Schmooze® Chief Cocktail Contributor and member of the U.S. Bartenders Guild, Anthony DeSerio will serve as a judge, though the majority vote will be taken from our audience in attendance. Winners will be announced that night, as well as in Connecticut Magazine and on WNPR’s Faith Middleton Food Schmooze® show and website.
