The 2013 Fabulous Food Show takes Cleveland by storm this weekend with back-to-back tastings, demonstrations and, of course, the highly anticipated Cleveland Culinary Awards Gala, slated for 6:30 tonight at the I-X Grand Center Ballroom and requiring a separate $175 ticket. Join celebrity chefs like Alex Guarnaschelli, Marcus Samuelsson, Hugh Acheson, and Jason Roberts for hors d'oeuvres and an elegant four-course dinner made from local ingredients and expertly paired with craft beers and wines. After dinner, watch as members of Cleveland's very own food scene are presented with awards such as the Cleveland Culinary Ambassador Award, the Beverage Trailblazer Award, and the Restaurant Vanguard Award. General admission tickets for the food show cost $25 and may be purchased online. Hours are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. today, tomorrow and Sunday. (McConnell) fabulousfoodshow.com.
