River Street Stroll
Rising Star Chefs Dinner
Artisanal Supper at the Landings
Taste of Savannah
Jazz and Bubbles Brunch
The best part is these are just some of the events, there is much more to experience!
An event as large as this had to have a few preview events. Some pre-function events such as the Bistro Savoir Interactif and the World’s Largest Lowcountry Boil made an impressive way for the following event. The first pre-function even, Bistro Savoir Interactif, took place in late September at Savannah Technical College and was a fundraising event set up by the culinary arts program at Savannah Technical College for the Patrick Ansley Williams Scholarship Fun Fund. Not only did participates embark on an interactive journey through Asia, Italy, the United States, and France; they also donated to a wonderful cause. Each destination held an “interactif”, as it was called, such as making sushi rolls in Asia, and sampling wine pairings in France. The last treat experienced during this event was getting to meet the culinary department head at Savannah Tech and awarded chef, Jean Vandeville. However if that wasn’t your speed then the second pre-festival event had to be! The World’s Largest Lowcountry Boil was held on November 7th 2015 at Hutchinson island. The event (pictured to the right) was an attempt at hosting the largest boil ever! In order to feed everyone the event included more than 1,500 pounds of Wild Georgia Shrimp, 1,100 pounds of sausage, and 3,000 ears of corn. All of this served with “all you can eat fixin’s” on the side.
Savannah’s Food and Wine Festival had an impressive introduction with the two previous event but nothing compares to the midst festival events! Starting of the week on November 9th was the Master Class Series at the Mansion. Participates can choose either the 700 Cooking School or the Wine Cellar tasting room to experience culinary techniques involving all the senses as well as meeting celebrity chefs and wine, spirits and beer experts. Didn’t make it the first time? Don’t worry, this event isn’t over, in fact you have until the 13th of November to join a class! Events such as the master class continue throughout the week. The Rising Star Chefs Dinner is a five course dinner at the end of the week, on November 14th, held to let individuals enjoy the creative vision and passion of some of Georgia’s rising chef stars. Some of the rising stars participating will include Thomas Marlow, Savannah Haseler, Mike Perez, and many more. Not wanting to ruin this amazing culinary event, some functions will be surprises. It’s safe to say the Food and Wine Festival offers an enormous amount of functions and dinners to let people from all over experience Savannah’s marvelous food.
