In case somebody else wasn't too sure, like myself about the word 'weck' ... :wink:

...A sandwich made of sliced roast beef and horseradish on a hard roll covered with coarse grains of salt and caraway seed.


Another awesome looking sandwich, Phil!
And Michael`s salad looks nice and plentiful to me. :smile:

^ That's funny that you mention weck, Bill...because I had always assumed that everyone knew what a "weck" roll was until I asked for it at an out of town restaurant one time and they looked at me like I was crazy!

I had no idea that Beef On Weck was a Western NY thing at the time! :lol:

That sandwich really does look amazing. Excuse me while I cry in the corner eating a terrible yogurt.

I was actually drawn to that lovely stuffed celery, myself.

:lover:

^^LOL!!! :lol:

^ Yes, the celery was very good. Michael was still full from the meal so he didn't want it, so I wolfed it down!


Onward we march...

Here are some photos of a great pizza place in downtown Winchester, VA (Roma Wood Fired Pizza) that we hit during a recent micro-brew beer fest in downtown.

Also included some other random shots from our trip. Enjoy!

The pizza looks amazing! It sounds like a perfect blend of toppings. Also, that sausage sampler looks good as well.

^ & ^^ Oh yes...they were both delicious!

I have been so busy with work lately that I haven't had time to wander around to different food joints or festivals. I guess that I need to start doing something about that soon!

^And do something about that I did!

Yesterday, Michael and I went over to Ellicottville for their annual Taste of Ellicottville food festival. For those that may not know (which I assume is probably 99.9% of you), Ellicottville is a very picturesque town situated in the heart of Western NY. It is in very close proximity to the Holiday Valley Ski Resort which also happens to have a very nice golf course, adventure rope & zipline park as well as a great mountain terrain coaster.

While we didn't do any of that during this visit, we did go to sample the tasty food offerings prepared by local establishments. While we didn't get to go to Taste of Buffalo this year due to being out of town, I can honestly say that I am starting to like this food festival almost better than ToB. These local restaurants seem to like to have different offerings each year whereas ToB seems like they share most of the same offerings year in and year out.

In addition to the food, we also got a great tour of the Ellicottville Brewing Company. I found out an interesting tidbit about one of the originators of the beers - he (Phin DeMink) is also one of the originators of our much beloved local beer 'Southern Tier' which some of you may have heard of (or drank) before.

Here is a link to the EBC website if you're interested in what's on tap or what they offer for food:
