The Cincinnati Food + Wine Classic returns for its second year next month, with an expanded schedule, a grand tasting, and more than 100 chefs, artisans, beverage pros and storytellers, coming together for three days of food, wine, and cocktails, in celebration of our regional dynamic food and beverage scene.

Leanne Brown’s cookbook, GOOD AND CHEAP: Eat Well on $4/Day, is a handy guide for anyone who wants to prepare nutritious, good-tasting recipes. But it is especially useful for low-income individuals and families. Ms. Brown believes kitchen skills, and not budget, are the key to great, wholesome food.  And she has made her book available to families in need across the country. 

  A group working to establish a co-op grocery store in Clifton announced last week that it had signed an agreement to purchase the old Keller’s IGA building at 319 Ludlow Ave. Now the group is working towards raising the funds needed to open the Clifton Market

The ultimate gift for the food lover. In the same way that 1,000 Places to See Before You Die reinvented the travel book, 1,000 Foods to Eat Before You Die is a joyous, informative, dazzling, mouthwatering life list of the world’s best food.

  The sight of food trucks is relatively new in town, but over the last few years the number of trucks and carts serving a variety of foods, from Korean tacos to pizza to grilled cheese, along with ice cream, crepes and waffles has grown. Cincinnati is now home to more than 30 mobile food operators.
