The gastronomic delights of Fort Worth can now be tasted by the world, thanks to the 2014 Texas Food and Wine Festival. Fort Worth offers unique dishes and wine choices, and this festival features the best that chefs and brewers can offer. This festival was conducted on March 27 to 30, providing an unforgettable experience for both casual attendees and seasoned connoisseurs. Its goal is to combine the historic venue and homegrown flavor accompanied by the outstanding culinary skills of top-notch local chefs, winemakers, and culinary individuals.
This festival was founded by Russell Kirkpatrick, who found inspiration in the Buffalo Gap Wine and Food Summit. He realized that many of the participants came from Fort Worth. What better way to pay homage to these talented individuals than to conduct a prestigious festival within Forth Worth itself?
This food and wine festival was established to accomplish three main goals. First, it aims to promote the homegrown talents of Fort Worth, encouraging culinary excellence and allowing people from other places to have a taste of the region’s specialties. Aligned with this goal, the festival also seeks to promote restaurants and local food businesses, as well as the ranching and farming community.
Second, the festival aims to give back to the community. Earnings from the event will be used to support local grant programs, including scholarships for culinary education. The ultimate end goal of these funds is to enhance further the culinary skills of the locals and motivate them to be immersed and try the culinary industry.
Finally, the festival seeks to educate, to raise awareness of the relevance of culinary skills in the modern world. By bringing great food and refreshing wine closer to the people, it seeks to make more people appreciate the culinary arts. The festival also gives interested people the opportunity to pursue a culinary career.
