In addition to the four cities in which Stewart will participate, USA TODAY NETWORK Food & Wine Experiences will also take place in Rochester, Indianapolis, Louisville, Green Bay, Milwaukee and the Paradise Coast of Southwest Florida. The Martha Stewart brand will be integrated into each of these events as well.
