SALT LAKE CITY – The Salt Lake Area Restaurant Association (SLARA) presents the first-ever Salt Lake Food & Wine Fest to showcase the emerging gastro capital’s dynamic culinary offerings. Advance certificates are now available for a menu of themed events that encourage participants to discover and indulge in the food, wine and spirits that have become a prevalent aspect of Salt Lake’s vibrant culture. In addition to individual events and educational seminars taking place from July 7 to 14, participating restaurants will feature special offerings and menus all week long. The festivities officially kick of with SLARA’s Salt Lake Food & Wine Fest joining forces with Eat Drink Salt Lake to promote the best food and wine experiences Salt Lake has to offer on July 6 at Tracy Aviary.
