We’re jazzed about this four-day celebration of food, wine, beer and craft spirits emerging from the South and beyond. Walk between tasting tents, attend curated gourmet gatherings, watch cooking demos, and get your mouth around food prepared by more than 200 noted chefs. It’s going to be epic. Sep 20-24
Food festivals in the USA are the epitome of summer: walking around in the warmth, trying different foods, keeping a steady beverage flow, and running into friends. It’s a chance to watch a cooking demonstration with a chef you’ve watched on TV, or maybe to take a class and extend your skills. You might be introduced to new ingredients or at least new ways to prepare them, and be dazzled by the plated glory on display. Here at Time Out we especially love the festivals that celebrate a particular vegetable, and you’ll find a few of those on the list below. Come with an appetite and an expectation of new recipes you’ll be dying to replicate later.
