Eat, Drink & Be Merry Magazine - Summer / Fall Issue 2021



“Wine is bottled poetry.” Robert Louis Stevenson

Welcome to the inaugural issue of Big Blend “Eat, Drink & Be Merry” Magazine! As we head through the dog days of summer and slowly step into the start of the fall season, it’s only fitting to turn our attention to wine. Every state in the US produces wine, and this issue features wines and wineries across the country from Southern Arizona to Northwest Colorado, and out to Erie, Pennsylvania. For some added ‘wine-tainment’ we’ve curated a wine-fused song list to pair with some online puzzle play.

From England to Louisiana, Oregon to California, we also focus on regional cuisine and festive events that provide a taste of place and culture. Of course, there are plenty of recipes to try. There are light bites like chopped salad, strawberry bruschetta, and veggie burgers, as well as brunch favorites such as quiche and French Toast, along with tasty drinks including a Sulaimani chai, Palisade peach mimosas, and a chocolate, peanut butter and banana smoothie.

We also bring the food/beverage and hospitality industries into the mix with expert advice for small businesses, employees, and job seekers, as well as philanthropic endeavors such as the Phoenix, Arizona chapter of Les Dames d’ Escoffier International, an organization of women leaders who provide leadership, educational opportunities, and philanthropic events.
