Food and wine festival in Montclair in January!

A great way to stave off the frigid January weather is to enjoy an evening of food and wine, and you can do exactly that when Frost Bites: The 2016 Montclair Food and Wine Festival takes place on Jan 28 at the Woman’s Club in Upper Montclair.

Restaurants like Ariane Kitchen and Bar, Maritime Parc, Turtle and the Wolf, and Pig and Park will be participating. Top chef and Food Network star Amanda Freitag will be appearing. The mission of the festival is to provide awareness and appreciation of the culinary arts in Montclair and the metro area, and to provide scholarships for disadvantaged youth interested in the field.

An excellent cause, and a great evening out.

Lisa Davies,vice president and executive director of Frost Bites tells me all about it, on this edition of Valerie’s NJ podcast.

Plus find out about some interesting restaurant food trends for 2016.
