Thanks to my friend, Fats, I just got back from a delicious and exciting weekend at the Austin’s Food & Wine Festival!

Hosted by the Food & Wine magazine, the festival showcased celebs like Masaharu Morimoto, Tim Love, Marcus Samuelsson, Andrew Zimmern, Michelle Bernstein…..to name a few that I spotted.

I was very excited to meet them all but the highlight of my weekend was this Kodak moment with Top Chef Paul Qui! After all, I did travel all the way from San Fran to Austin just to meet him at the festival!!

Despite the scorching heat, long lines waiting to get into the tents and a thick coating dust on every exposed inch of my skin, I managed to sneak into the tents for some interesting cooking demos given by these leading chefs and tasted unique cocktails (made with milk and egg whites!) in one of the seminars.


In addition, there was Grand Tasting of food from all over the state and wines from across the world.

And when we were not at the festival, us foodie girls had on our agenda to eat at some of the city’s top restaurants like La Condesa for lunch and Uchiko for dinner.

And we simply ate our way around Austin, exploring some local favorites like the late night Taco Truck on 6th Street, the Foreign & Domestic for dinner and SoCo Cafe for Sunday brunch.

These are just a few highlights and there’s so much more to share from my weekend trip. Stay tuned for the next post covering fun grilling demos and seminars on Spanish tapas and crazy cocktails!
