Foodways Texas’s Rescheduling Symposium
Texas food organization Foodways Texas is rescheduling its symposium because of concerns over COVID-19 (aka novel coronavirus). The event was supposed to take place in San Antonio from Thursday, March 26 through Saturday, March 28. Refunds will be issued, and the new date will be announced later.
Austin Food & Wine Festival’s Cooking Demonstrations
Participants in the Austin Food & Wine Festival’s cooking demonstrations have been announced. This includes James Beard Award-winning chef Mashama Bailey of Savannah restaurant The Grey, New York chef of FieldTrip and and Eater Young Gun JJ Johnson New Orleans chef Aarón Sánchez, among others. Keep in mind that attendees don’t necessarily get to eat the food made during these demonstrations. The festival takes place on Friday, April 24 through Sunday, April 26.
Hill Country Winery Incubator
Fredericksburg winery 1851 Vineyards has been turned into wine incubator Slate Mill Wine Collective. This means other wineries will be able to produce their wines in the space, which was recently renovated and expanded with a new tasting room, patio, and production areas. This includes wineries such as C.L. Butaud and Dandy Rosé.
