Austin Food & Wine Festival 2015


One of our favorite foodie events is without a doubt the Austin Food & Wine Fest. It’s a smoky grill-tastic weekend complete with big flavors on small plates… celebrity chefs cooking alongside local chefs… and, of course, bottomless glasses of wine. One highlight for us was watching Hugh Acheson’s demo (we just love watching him on Top Chef!)… Surrounded by a pretty meaty food & wine fest, he made fava bean & leek soup and an arugula salad with mint. He charmed the audience talking about the importance of cooking at home, eating seasonally and using good ingredients. He says “life’s too short for crappy olive oil,” and that “no one on their death bed has ever look back and regretted buying good cheese.”

This year we tagged along with Williams Sonoma, taking over their Instagram feed to share a peek into our weekend full of food. Check out more of our takeover images, on their blog!

    Aww this looks like so much fun! What a great weekend event.

  2. AH! I am so jealous that you got to experience the Austin Food and Wine Festival this year, I was so sad to see I’d be missing it before I moved down to Austin this June. It will be my new home and I CANNOT wait to delve into the new food experiences.

    Happy Sunday, Jeanine 🙂

      Thanks Erica! For this, a Sony A7R (it’s lighter to carry than the Canon 5D we use most of the time at home in our kitchen).
