Charleston Wine + Food Festival

southcarolina_charleston_winefood2013The Culinary Village is the heart of the Wine + Food Festival, set for February 28 through March 3, 2013, in Charleston, South Carolina.

The “village” will be home to the Grand Tasting Tents (with more than 80 food and beverage vendors from across the country), the Celebrity Kitchen and Culinary Hub with interactive demonstrations and panels, an Outdoor Living + Grilling Area with tastings and demos, the Festival retail and Wine Retail tents, cookbooks and kitchen gadgets.

The Southern Foodways Alliance Tent will serve as the front porch destination for Southern food aficionados during the Festival. Lots of great programming will take place on stage each day. But the SFA tent will also be the place to catch a quick conversation between presentations, the place to talk red eye gravy technique with Tennessee ham man Allan Benton or discuss the prospects for summer peaches with South Carolina farmer Dori Sanders.

A whole raft of cookbook authors will be on hand to sign their books. Other highlights: “Salute to Charleston’s Chefs: Opening Night Party”, “Perfectly Paired Dinners”, “Waffle House Smackdown” and “Lowcountry Jazz Brunch” — there are more than 80 events over the weekend. On March 2, for example, John Mariani hosts a cruise on Charleston’s waterways that includes sampling wines from six different winemakers and samples of Lowcountry cuisine prepared by SpiritLine Cruises’ Chef Mason Mullock.

Events during this festival weekend often sell out, Road Trips Foodies, so if you’re headed that way, check the schedule and lock in your choices.
