Autumn Food & Wine Fest a carnival of bites and sips

The smoke from the Rim Fire had lifted (mostly), leaving crystal-blue skies at Northstar-at-Tahoe ski resort near Truckee this past weekend. Which was a break for the 2,000-plus foodies who gathered there for the 28th annual Lake Tahoe Autumn Food and Wine Festival. On Sunday, they sipped fine wines and sampled delectable small-plate dishes at tents and kiosks set up on and above the Northstar ice-skating rink. As usual, it was a classy affair.
