The 2012 Menu

Being that this was the first year for The Austin FOOD & WINE Festival, we assembled a world-class roster of chef talent and wine & spirit aficionados to descend onto Austin for a weekend. From a couple Iron Chefs to Top Chefs, from James Beard Award nominees to winners and from hometown heroes to worldwide brand names The Austin FOOD & WINE Festival has it all to satisfy your craving for a gathering like this in a town like Austin.
