The complete schedule for the BB&T Charleston Wine + Food Festival wasn’t available when today’s food section went to press, but prospective ticket buyers can now find the entire agenda on the festival’s website.
Among the new events offered are breakfasts at Basico, Callie’s Kitchen and the Rarebit; a pair of events featuring Atlanta chef Kevin Gillespie; dinners at Edmund’s Oast, Xiao Bao Biscuit; a Poogan’s Porch dinner starring pioneering cocktail revivalist Dale DeGroff and a demo by Thai food champion Andy Ricker of the ever-growing Portland/NYC Pok Pok empire. In keeping with current beverage trends, there’s also a sherry seminar on the schedule.
The festival’s also picking up a session format that’s played well at culinary celebrations in New York and Portland: Chefs from Brown’s Court Bakery, Ted’s Butcherblock and Bull Street Gourmet will join Los Angeles’ pizza impresario Nancy Silverton for a sandwich showcase. Each participant is being asked to riff on “the classic Italian sandwich.”
Session prices range from $40-$325. Tickets go on sale next Wednesday.
