I am a longtime fan and benefactor of your wayward and devout obsessions, coming back to the trough for another nickel’s worth of wisdom. As a public service, I’d like to place a calendar of monthly events–having to do with our kind of foods–on my web site. Do you know of a collection of those yearly, rural, food-and-strong-drink-inspired gatherings? Awaiting your missive.
The most comprehensive listing of celebrations like this is www.festivals.com. Give that a try!
