In just a few days the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival returns for its 11th year, featuring an impressive chef lineup. This festive is a lot like SOBEWFF with its star studded list of participants, but is much more intimate as far as the collection of events and number of attendees.

Most of Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival takes place at the Four Seasons Resort in Palm Beach, with a few events off site nearby. The festival kicks off Thursday, December 14th with 4 different dinners featuring favorite chefs: Michelle Bernstein, Timon Balloo, Brad Kilgore, Clay Conley, and more.

Friday night is host to a lunch at Meat Market and a dinner a Southern Rivalry dinner at The Regional, followed by a Chef Welcome Party at The Breakers. Saturday starts off with a kid’s cooking class and fun daytime events like the Chillin’ N’ Grillin’ lunch series. The evening will go into a fan favorite event called Street Food where several well known South Florida chefs battle over who makes the best street food dish. Of course, there’s always a late night party and this year’s is at Imoto with Miami’s own, Danny Serfer.

The festival ends Sunday with a casual brunch at Eau Resort and Spa followed by the 11th Annual Grand Tasting taking place at The Gardens Mall with bites from over 50 South Florida restaurants including familiar names like Pinch Kitchen, Meat Market, Rocco’s Tacos, and Glass & Vine.
