The purpose for the event is to capture the essence of local culinary creations and farm fresh produce during the heart of harvest; while displaying numerous local restaurants, farm markets, wineries, breweries, and other food vendors in the area. Attendees and guests will have the opportunity to see, sample and socialize appetizers, main courses, desserts, wines, and more. Members, partners, famed wine makers, and culinary geniuses are afforded the opportunity to showcase their best offerings of the Finger Lakes region.
Musical entertainment will be provided, once again, by William Groome. His musical genre consists of acoustic, classical, and folk.
The event was named to honor the late executive chef and co-owner of Red Newt Cellars Winery & Bistro, Debra Whiting. Whiting served on the Chamber's board of directors from 2008 to 2011 (Chairwoman of the Board in 2010), was the driving force behind the inaugural culinary event and was one of the many reasons why this social event was successful in 2010.
