With a bang!

'The Edmonton Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival returns to the Shaw Conference Centre for its 12th year! Indulge at the 2013 Festival as you sample an impressive selection of premium wines, spirits, and import and micro-brewed beer, as well as cuisine from an assorted group of Edmonton's top restaurants and hotels.

And I have a pair of tickets to the coveted Saturday evening session (6 - 10 PM) to give away to one lucky commenter. Its easy to enter. Visit the Rocky Mountain Food and Wine Festival website here and come back and tell me what's the dish/ wine/ spirit that excites you most.
