Chef Jacques Pepin joins the fifth annual New Haven Food & Wine Festival this year, on Aug. 22, with events taking place during the 2012 New Haven Open at Yale, presented by First Niagara, and featuring more than 20 of the city's top restaurants.

"In its fifth year, New Haven Food & Wine Festival has a fan following of its own," said Anne Worcester, tournament director of the New Haven Open at Yale. "Tennis fans and foodies can indulge in tasty and inventive cuisine and meet the chefs who contribute to New Haven's renowned dining scene."

The food and wine event's grand tasting on Aug. 22 will be hosted by Pepin, and feature dishes from chefs at restaurants such as 116 Crown, Basta Trattoria, The Cask Republic, Geronimo, Kitchen Zinc, Union League Cafe and others.
