The centerpiece of the festival, dubbed the Whole Foods Market Grand Tasting Village, will be home to cooking demonstrations by the celebrity chef lineup; the nearby MasterCard Grand Tasting Tents will offer Festival attendees samplings from forty different restaurants and over eighty local beverage options, including wine and spirits. In addition to the food and drink options, guests can also attend lifestyle and wine seminars, which will feature top-billing chefs, winemakers and other professionals.
