Food and Wine Festival © Joe deSousa
Austin becomes a cuisine and fine wine destination towards the end of March and beginning of April. Some of the best chefs in the US culinary scene descend upon the town at the behest of many of Texas's local masters to educate and indulge a hungry public. The festival is organised by some of texas' well-known foodies, namely Tim Love, Tyson Cole, and Jesse Herman. Cooking demostrations, wine tastings, and cocktail seminars are ongoing for the duration of the festival. A Grand Tasting Pavilion enables visitors to taste a wide variety of food and drinks, with over 80 exhibitors represented at the pavilion. Brand new cook books can be bought and signed by their authors. Live music is also on offer throughout the festival to keep visitors entertained. The festival is a 21-plus only events, which means that small children and babies can't attend along with their parents.
Venue: Main Venue: Four Seasons Hotel, downtown Austin.
