Growth is an indicator that an event is still growing strong. And even though a number of craft shows had less attendance last year, the annual Tallahassee Wine and Food Festival had around 750 attendees. It has become Tallahassee’s premier event, presented by the First Commercial Insurance Company. It continues to go on, and this year, we expect the events to be sold out once more.

A Wine Dinner starts off the festival on the first night. This features an elegant cocktail reception, a live auction, and the wine dinner itself, of course. You’ll get to partake in the full course accentuated by a selection of Italian wines. We will also have celebrity auctioneers – who are to be revealed at a later date! – who will host the bidding on a wide selection of items.

One of the events featured is a cooking class that is hosted by an internationally recognized chef. Guests who sign up to join will have the opportunity to choose one class from a list of different courses that relate to French cuisine. You’ll be able to enhance your skills in cooking by learning a few new tricks from the masters themselves. Afterwards, you can enjoy a fabulous brunch and a cooking presentation by the celebrity chefs. Cookbooks are also available for purchase around the event.

If you’re interested in wine, you can learn from the best in the business, and go to wine classes that teach you how to cook with it, taste it, and make it from the most advanced connoisseurs. You’ll get to sample select wines from “Down Under”, involving a n assortment of over 200 distinct wines from the world over.

Finally, be inspired by fine dining and wine tasting, and complement these sensations by feeding the eyes and touch. Have a look at the craft show, and see unique works screened by qualified jurors.
