The Preservation Society of Newport holds its 7th annual Newport Mansions Wine & Food Festival September 21-23. Among the food talent are featured guests EmerilLagasse andJacques Pepin with his daughter Claudine Pépin. Alas, if you were hoping to have brunch on Saturday with the Pepins and twenty others, move on. Monsieur Pepin is a guaranteed fund-raiser and the $500 a person tickets sold out fast. But check out the site for Emeril, wine-tasting events, etc.
