California Dates Take Center Stage at This Year's Palm Desert Food & Wine Festival

As a culinary sponsor of this hugely popular event, the California Date Commission will showcase the great taste and versatility of dates along with their numerous health benefits

PALM DESERT, Calif., March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The California Date Commission will be front and center at Palm Desert Food & Wine, March 24-26, 2023 at The Gardens on El Paseo in Palm Desert, California. The festival features Grand Tastings on Saturday and Sunday, with the California Date Commission providing delicious California dates for attendees and chef demonstrations throughout the weekend.

"This event attracts some of the top names in the culinary world, many of whom love to cook with dates, and we are proud to be a big part of it," said Kristy Kneiding, California Date Commission Manager. "Being able to showcase the nutritional benefits and great taste of California dates to such an influential audience is exciting and rewarding for the date industry."

The California Date Commission will have a welcome space at the grand entrance where attendees can sample different varieties of dates including Medjool, Deglet Noor, Brown Barhi, and Halawi.

Guests are also invited to play 'The Date-ing Game', a digital trivia game with the opportunity to win great prizes including "Aarti's Little Black Date Book", an exclusive digital recipe book with date recipes by celebrity chef, Aarti Sequeira, a 2-pound box of California dates, and a $150 grocery gift card.

"Dates are a miracle, thriving in conditions that would take out most other fruit, yet yielding perhaps the sweetest, most indulgent of them all," said Aarti Sequeira, winner of The Next Food Network Star Season 6 and Celebrity Ambassador for California Dates. "They are nature's candy. Brown sugar, caramel, fudge...it's all there, and nowhere more than in the bounty grown in California. I grew up eating dates since I was a child in Dubai, and these Cali beauties are some of the best I've ever tasted!"

On Saturday March 25 from 1 p.m.-2 p.m. Aarti will host Aarti's Date Paarti where she will be cooking live and preparing a delectable dish featuring delicious California dates. Aarti will be joined by local date farmer, Mark Tadros for a lively discussion about world-renowned California dates and the famous Coachella Valley growing region.
