      The Year of Alabama Food - July 16th 7:00am until 2:00pm
       
       
      Alabama is claiming the 2005 the year of the tomato.  Tomatoes are
      taking center stage at the first Alabama Food Festival.  Pepper Place
      Saturday Market and The Alabama Association of Convention and Visitor
      Bureaus is presenting the first Alabama Food Festival on July 16 from
      7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. (extended hours) at the Pepper Place Saturday
      Market.  The food festival will be held at 2nd Avenue South between 28th
      and 29th Streets South in downtown Birmingham.  
              Chefs from restaurants across the state participated in a series
      of regional cook-offs in Decatur, Birmingham, Auburn, and Daphne to come
      up with the best tomato- based recipes in Alabama.  The chefs whose
      recipes were regional winners will be on hand at the Alabama Food
      Festival.  One of them will have their recipe named the "Official Dish
      of the Year of Alabama Food". 
              The Official Dish isn't the only tomato competition taking place
      that day. Professional growers will compete for the "Best-Tasting
      Tomato" in Alabama, which includes a cash prize.  Home growers will also
      be invited to weigh their garden tomatoes for the "Heaviest Tomato"
      award. 
              The food festival will feature cooking demonstrations, cookbook
      signings and panel discussions with noted Alabama chefs Frank Stitt,
      Chris Hastings, Franklin Biggs and Clayton Sherrod.  A new documentary
      film, "Taste of Alabama: From Farm to Table," featuring Frank Stitt,
      will also have its premiere at the festival.
              Other events include three stages of live musical performances,
      local artisan booths, a kids' craft area and the well-known Pepper Place
      Farmer's Market featuring fresh Alabama produce. 
              The Alabama Food Festival is being sponsored by The Alabama
      Association of Convention and Visitor Bureaus, The Kitchen Center,
      Compass Bank, Piggly Wiggly, Brookwood Medical Center, Renaissance Ross
      Bridge Golf Resort & Spa, Adamson Ford, Laughing Crow Organics, and
      Spread Right Organics. Tourism officials choose to focus the Alabama
      Food Festival on the tomato because state chefs told them of the Alabama
      tomato's reputation for quality and taste.
