The organizers of the Fort Worth Food + Wine Festival, scheduled for March 27-30, 2014, launched a snazzy new website today that gives some more details on the upcoming shindig.
According to the site, the four-day event “plans to infuse historic venues and homegrown flavor with celebrated local chefs, culinary professionals, and wine makers into over 20 events throughout the weekend.”
The festival aims to “bring national and regional attention to the Fort Worth food scene and to assist in sustaining chefs, restaurants, and the local ranching and farming community.”
Proceeds from the event will go towards unspecified local grant programs and culinary scholarships.
“This is an exciting step for the festival,” said the festival’s creator Russell Kirkpatrick, on its Facebook page. “I hope that Fort Worth is as proud of the work that’s been done for the site and brand as I am.”
Among those serving on the festival’s executive committee are Chef Jon Bonnell of Bonnell’s Fine Texas Cuisine, Fritz and Erin Rahr of Rahr & Sons Brewing Company, and the Fort Worth Weekly’s own Michael Newquist.
