It promises to be the biggest event ever hosted in Scarsdale so you don't want to miss the Southern Westchester Food and Wine Festival (SOWE) today in Scarsdale Village. Producer Rich Baumer is expecting up to 5,000 visitors to the Village and has lined up celebrity chefs, top cookbook authors, live music and more to entertain residents and our guests. Meet famed chefs like David Burk and Rafael Palomino, Sneaky Chef Missy Chase Lapine and Tanya Wenmen, Editor in Chief of Epicurious.com. Perhaps the biggest draw will be tastings from 70 top restaurants, caterers, and bakeries and over 200 award winning wines and craft brewed beers from around the world.
