A Wealth of Knowledge found at the Philadelphia Travel and Culinary Expo!

A few weekends ago, we had the pleasure of attending the Philadelphia Travel and Culinary Expo.   Now, if there’s two things my husband and I love in life, it’s food and traveling.  We are always trying new recipes and going out to new restaurants.  Plus, we go on road trips as frequently as possible.  This expo was right up our alley.

We enjoyed every minute of each presentation that we were able to attend.   Birchrunville cheese maker, Sue Miller, showed us how to pair certain cheeses with beers to create something truly wonderful.

Tony Clark, the head chef at the Valley Forge Casino, gave us a step by step tutorial on how to make vichyssois, a cold potato leek soup that tastes phenomenal.

We learned how to make the perfect cheese steak with one of the masters himself, Tony Luke.

Reid Bramblett, an author and travel writer taught us how to think outside the box while traveling;  To not only save money but to also create unforgettable and unique experiences.

We also got to sample tons of craft beers in the Mid-Atlantic Craft Beer Pavilion.

I didn’t even mention the awesome vendors that were set up with tons of useful travel information and deals.  In addition to an abundance of food vendors sampling their tasty wares.  It was quite the experience and I can’t wait until next year’s expo.  It was so nice to have an adults-only trip and it was one that we both really enjoyed.  I only wish that we were able to stay for the entire show but the weather forced us to head home early.  I will be making several posts on all the great tips and recipes that we learned, so stay tuned!  You won’t want to miss any of it!  Check out the expo here.
