RIDGEFIELD — Culinary experts showed up as advertised, and so did the crowds at the ilani Wine and Food Fest.

The crowd seemed to grow hourly at Saturday’s Grand Tasting. There were more than a dozen events throughout the festival.
Here is a look at this year’s event, and a look into the future. The resort wants to make this an annual event.
