Sara Moulton plans to attend the 2004 Niagara Wine & Food Classic

Niagara Falls, Ontario (April 19, 2004) - Gourmet Magazine, one of North America's premier culinary magazines returns as the presenting partner of the Niagara Wine & Food Classic.

The beautiful wine country, the unforgettable site of the falls, some of North America's best chefs and a spectacular array of wines...could there be a better way to spend a weekend?"

Sara has been with Gourmet since 1988 and is a veteran television food personality, currently seen on the Food Network show, Sara's Secrets.

Mark Hand, Corporate Chef of the Niagara Culinary Institute and one of the partners of the Niagara Wine & Food Classic believes that the event is "a great opportunity for us to showcase our Canadian culinary talent. Sara has never been to the Niagara Wine & Food Classic, and I know she is going to be overwhelmed by the level of culinary excellence at the event."

While finalizing plans for Sara's attendance, Caroline Atherton, VP of Niagara Falls Tourism had the opportunity to meet Sara for the first time. "She has this amazing array of stories from the culinary world that span her extremely impressive career.
