GREENWICH, Conn. -- Kathie Lee Gifford poured GIFFT wine , celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson of Harlem's Red Rooster talked inspiration at a panel discussion, and hundreds of area residents sampled, sipped and enjoyed the sun at the Sixth Annual 2016 Greenwich Wine +Food Festival.

The event, held Sep. 24 at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park in Greenwich, featured more than 200 area venues and attracted hundreds of local foodies.

Among those in attendance: Darien Social , The Restaurant at Rowayton Seafood, Sweet Lisa's Cakes of Greenwich, which made a statement with an Instagram-worthy "Election" cake, and Connecticut Cookie Company founded by Trumbull resident Andrea Greene. The online company has plans to open a store on Black Rock Turnpike in Fairfield in late fall.
