The rain did not deter the energetic vibe of yesterday's Atlanta Food & Wine Festival.... We attended the Tasting Tents from 1:30-4:30 and was it ever brimming over with food & wine lusciousness!! This is the 2nd year for the festival, and our first time attending. In between sampling Southern inspired dishes and spirits, we spotted lots of Atlanta's food community in attendance. We got a chance to catch up with Kristen Hard from Cacao and Wes from Honeysuckle Gelato. Food favorites included Blackberry Farm's Meat & Cheese board, Duke's Mayonnaise Pimento Cheese, White Oak Kitchen's Fried Chicken, pretty much all of the BBQ dishes, and the Patron Tequila grapefruit margarita. In addition to the Tasting Tents, this 4 day event offered cooking classes, demonstrations, and private dinners, hosted by the country's top culinary talents. Be sure to put it on your calendar to attend next year!
Due to my hands being consumed with food & fare, the 1 or 2 photos I did get a chance to take, don't do the scene justice.... So watch the attached video below from last year's event to get the inside look.
