Æbleskiver-up, at Taste of Solvang

The mid-March snack-around in California's windmill-iest town is on its sugar-sprinkled way.

EVERY EATER... has probably experienced that decadent sort of dining day, the day where every meal is a bit outlandish, rather rich, and one for the books. Even the smallest bites and snacks can rise to a higher and nobler and more memorable level on such a day, meaning you'll look back upon the experience as one of the most gourmet-good and taste-big of your life. And while you could likely plan such a day at home, finding a place where a variety of vittles will be served, and notable desserts and pastries galore, seems like just the ticket. And, speaking of tickets? You can buy yours to the annual...

TASTE OF SOLVANG, where æbleskiver is queen of the confectionery choices but other flavorful wonders abound. Those flavorful picks include wines, of course, which is no shocker given Solvang's vineyard-central location. Craft beers, too, will making a sudsy showing, and both vino and brews'll star in the Wine & Beer Walk. Food more your jam? "Dozens" of local eateries will participate, which means you'll try a host of savory meats, creamy cheeses, and desserts that go beyond the æbleskiver should you stroll the Culinary Tasting Trail for "bite-size tastings" that are gratis (and good).

THE DATES... for all of this cute-village'd snackery? Mid-March is always the time to watch for this 27-year-along food festival. And in 2019, "Mid-March" means March 13 through 17. As for tickets? You can choose what you'd like to do, and go from there, buying-wise, but if you want the Weekend Pass, it's $115 plus a fee. Find your ticket info here, devoted Solvangers and æbleskiver aficionados.
