Corned Beef Cupcakes, Meet Napa Valley Wine Makers and The Worlds Largest Woman (almost) in Today's Eater's Digest

An early morning serving of food news, with no preservatives or additives.

If you're a wine aficionado or maybe just a wanna-be Sommelier of sorts then you won't want to miss "Men Behind the Vines - Napa's Next of Kin" at Sanctuary on Camelback March 24th. The night kicks of with a champagne reception followed by wine tastings with winemakers Rob Mondavi, Oscar Renteria, and Chris Hall. Next, enjoy cuisine and wine pairing with Chef Beau Macmillan. Tickets are extremely limited. The cost is $125.00. Call 480-607-2300 for reservations.

For the rest of the month of March you can enjoy a three course meal at Sassi in Scottsdale for only $35 per person with an optional wine pairing for an extra $25. Click here to see the menu.

This is wrong on so many levels. A New Jersey woman is trying to become the largest woman in the world. She already has the record for the largest woman to give birth, but no, that's just not enough. The 600lb, 42 year old mother of two, hopes to be in the 1000lb range within the next two years. Click here to read the full story.

Tomorrow is St. Patrick's Day and what better way to celebrate then with a delicious batch of Corned Beef and Cabbage Cupcakes. These sound so, um, appetizing? Made with a cup of stout, ground corned beef, some other not-very-cupcake-like ingredients and then, topped off with malt vinegar cabbage frosting. Let's see if Bakerella makes a cake pop outta these guys!
