Culinary Tent sponsored by Marcella′s Appliance and the Big Green Egg welcomes back Chef William Cornelius for the 2019 festival!

The Culinary Tent has proudly presented cooking demonstrations performed by Finger Lakes Celebrity Chef William Cornelius of Chef William Creations and other special guests! The Chef has utilized his proprietary sauces, local foods and craft beverages from our festival vendors in his recipes, as well as provided wine pairing suggestions for each dish.
In 2019, more seating was added under a new larger demonstration tent and we hosted a cut-throat, Chef-style, cooking competition! Chef William Cornelius and Chef Colin Miner of the Queensbury Hotel faced off head to head and using the big green egg!
In the past Marcella’s Appliance was adjacent to the culinary tent, smoking meats on Big Green Egg Grills both days of the festival, ending with a “fest taste test” of these delicious meats… is your mouth watering yet?!
Also under the Culinary Tent, local bartenders and social influencers have demonstrated unique Wine Cocktail recipes opposite the culinary demos, mixing new concoctions from wines and liquors available for purchase at the festival!
