TASTE News Service — Wine and food go hand in hand during any given month in Walla Walla, but for the month of February food takes center stage.

“February is for Foodies” is Walla Walla’s unique annual celebration of the fork, and it presents a once-a-year opportunity that food and wine lovers won’t want to pass up.

February is for Foodies loads the calendar with events, including prix-fixe menus at most of the top local restaurants, food, wine, and chocolate pairings, as well as special lodging discounts at some of Walla Walla’s most notable hotels.

“Walla Walla’s culinary community draws inspiration from the valley’s agricultural roots, an abundance of seasonal ingredients, and an eagerness to collaborate with each other,” said Ron Williams, executive director of Visit Walla Walla. “From the Wine Country Culinary Institute, to renowned chefs, to countless artisanal producers, food is in Walla Walla’s DNA and February is for Foodies is a showcase of those talents and inspiration.”

February is for Foodies includes the fine dining, Champagne, and chocolate of “The Sweetheart’s Package” at the historic Marcus Whitman Hotel, Waterbrook Winery’s unique culinary and wine experience with a sommelier and chef, a family-friendly spaghetti and game night at Olive Marketplace and Cafe, and a world-class meal accompanied by a live orchestra at Whitehouse-Crawford. And that is just a sampling. Walla Walla has so much more in store.

About Walla Walla:

As the unofficial capital of Washington wine country, Walla Walla is home to more than 120 wineries, a nationally recognized culinary scene, access to an abundance of outdoor recreation, and an arts & entertainment scene that rivals cities many times its size.
