Wine Blogging Wednesday #21 has been announced, and guess what? It’s not on a Wednesday. May’s event combines Wine Blogging Wednesday with Is My Blog Burning?. Is my Blog Burning? is another monthly web event, except for foodies. I suppose it was inevitable that the two come together.
This event will require my husband Kevin and I to work closely together. He is the one, after all, who does the cooking around here (for the most part). Perhaps we’ll do a small multi-course meal with a wine/entree combo followed by a dessert/wine combo. I can definitely take care of the latter and I can already picture him thumbing happily through his Wine Spectator Guide to Food & Wine Pairings trying to find a perfect combination for dinner that night.
Oh – what night you ask? Wine Blogging Wednesday is on Friday, May 19.
The wrap-up is hosted this month by the guy who started WBW, Lenn Thompson over at LennDevours. Cook up some grub and grab some

It’s the Fabulous Favorites Festival and it’s taking place on Friday May 19 on a blog near you.
What is the Fabulous Favorites Festival exactly? It’s a food and
wine pairing event that, we hope, will attract the largest group of
participants ever for any culinary blog event. For this one day at
least, food bloggers will be "forced" to dive into the wine pool, while
wine bloggers will have to uncork their cooking skills.
The concept is simple, with two plans of attack you can choose from.
- Pick a favorite bottle of wine from your cellar and create/cook a dish that goes with it.
- Pick a favorite dish in your culinary repertoire and seek out a wine that will pair will it.
Or, if you’re feeling really ambitious, create an entire wine-pairing menu of favorites.
