Happy National Culinarian’s Day!
Whether you are a professional chef, or just one for fun, you should be sure to celebrate with the culinarians of culinarians (too many culinarians?) this weekend at the 2012 Atlantic City Food And Wine Festival.
This humungo shindig starts up tomorrow night with a Poolside Launch Party hosted by top TV personalities Andrew Zimmern and Anne Burrell at 8 p.m. at The Pool After Dark at Harrah’s Resort and continues alllll weekend long until the last event on Sunday, a book signing with Paula Deen, at 1:30 p.m. at the Circus Maximus Theater at Caesars Atlantic City. (Other food stars will also be signing throughout the weekend such as Nadia G, Buddy Valastro, Tyler Florence and Anne Burrell. Click here to check the schedule and buy tickets).
A Grand Market & Italian Village session will be held each day (Friday through Sunday…and 2 on Saturday, score!) for you to stock up on an array of good eats, drinks and cooking gear, and learn some worthy technique from some of the country’s most respected chefs and cooking experts.
Some of the other many fab events of the weekend include Define Cheese-Steak with Andrew Zimmern on Friday at 8 p.m. at Showboat Atlantic City, Phillips Seafood’s Spiked Brunch (yes, please) at 1 p.m. on Saturday at The Pier Shops at Caesars Atlantic City, and Sweet & Stylish featuring Robert Irvine, Buddy Valastro, Nadia G, Paula Deen, Diane Henderiks, and Ruby Wesley at 8 p.m. on Saturday at Caesars.

Bottoms up for the culinarians!
