ExpoCulinaria, a food lovers event - you be the judge

Posted in Rushford Arts & Culture

By Team ExpoCulinaria

The date Saturday, September 22nd is circled on calendars and hungry culinary fans are getting their tickets early for the 2012 ExpoCulinaria—a taste of Rushford, MN. Relished from the success of last year, ExpoCulinaria is on entertainment menus for 5-8 pm rain or shine. Located below lush Magelssen Bluff and surrounding hillsides in downtown Rushford, this valley location is ideal for the energetic and fun-filled, scrumptious array of events. The evening promises to be filled with sampling and strolling through participating restaurants and businesses, a wine and beer tasting, music, judging, competition and winning. The highly anticipated gastronomic taste experience will also coincide with the 3rd September weekend of, Taste of the Trail, highlighting the cities of Rushford, Rushford Village and Houston on the Root River Trail System.

The delectable big show of the evening will be the Chef Challenge, Bring It to the Table. The culinary competition between two professional chefs will create mouthwatering appetizers, entrées and desserts that will utilize surprise ingredients, for a panel of judges. This delicious detail will be led off this year by panel of three judging on a point scale for presentation, creativity and taste.

Meet ExpoCulinaria judge number one. With a passion for visiting the California wine region and a dream to grow grapes and eventually make good wine of their own, Mike along with his wife, Kim began creating Tower Ridge Vineyard in the Root River Valley, near Rushford, MN. The adventure began in the early part of 2005, when Mike & Kim found a 60 acre parcel that showed great promise. They began experimenting in 2007 growing different varietals and fine tuning their skills on the appropriate trellising system to support these precious grapes. Oh yeah - and creating some good wine! Mike’s career started with the US Air Force in the mid-70’s. Then he started a 20 year career with IBM in Texas and then spent 5 years working for a technology start-up company. Throughout Mike’s adult life he has been flying and now his talents are being put to use as a Captain pilot for United Express. In his spare time, you might see him lending a hand at the Rushford Hardware store. But Mike’s alter ego lives in the culinary world. Mike is passionate about creating elaborate 5 (five) course dinners for his friends. These dinners are also complimented with 2 or 3 appropriate win .....
