Food & Drink At The Flower Show

philadelphia_flower_show

If you’re headed to the the Philadelphia Flower Show this year, have no fear there are many culinary options better than grazing on someone’s display.

This year’s show has the theme, Bella Italia and each day will feature three cooking demonstrations by local chefs. There will also be an Italian-themed store that will feature daily wine tastings and a visit from Danny DeVito who will be promoting his Limoncello. And if that’s not enough there are bars on the show floor after 5pm.

Details after the jump.

WINE TASTINGS:
New this year at the Flower Show, visitors can sample a selection of Italian wines in a wine tasting room and purchase their favorites at the Wine and Spirits Store, operated by the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board. The more than 100 red, white and sparkling wines, including those made by the Bolla, Frescobaldi, Nozzole, Ruffino, Villa Antinori and Folonari wineries, will be offered at the on-site store. Popular favorites and hard-to-find specialties, priced from $7.99, will be sold.

Film and television star Danny DeVito will visit the Flower Show on Saturday, March 7, to introduce his own brand of the classic after-dinner liqueur, limoncello.

The free tastings will be held in Room 204B located along the Show Concourse. The PLCB Wine and Spirits Store will be located at the nearby Show Bridge.
