Fuel’s Alex McMahan, who yesterday failed to follow in his father’s footsteps with a Taste of Charleston waiters’ race victory, may not have to wait an entire year to avenge the loss: There’s another waiters’ race on the schedule for the first-ever Savannah Food & Wine Festival.
But for prospective attendees who don’t have any interest in maneuvering an obstacle course while grasping a serving tray, the Nov. 11-17 festival also features plenty of less-energetic events, including wine dinners, tastings and cooking demonstrations. Chefs scheduled to participate include Hugh Acheson, Chris Hastings, Steven Satterfield, Anthony Lamas and Kent Rathbun.
According to a release, the event is “poised to set the bar high.”
Ticket prices vary by session; the complete schedule is posted here.
