The combination of perfect October weather, mouthwatering food, and never empty wine glasses left no doubts that the
2017 Memphis Food & Wine Festival was the Memphis culinary event of the year. Just ask any of the 2,500 attendees.
Our 2017 event brought over 30 chefs from around the world to Memphis Botanic Garden to whip up a variety of delicious dishes festival goers are still talking about. The menu included a diverse range of everything from Crudo of Hawaiian Kampachi (Chef Ken Frank, La Toque) to grilled Royal Red Shrimp with rum barrel hot sauce (Chef Tory McPhail, Commander's Palace) to Artichoke and Black Truffle Soup from headlining Chef Guy Savoy (Paris, France). Combined with generous wine samplings of more than 150 different wines from over 40 different wineries, there was not an empty stomach to be found.
To date, the Memphis Food & Wine Festival has raised more than $200,000 for FedExFamilyHouse in just two short years.
