Florida’s most talked about culinary celebration — at the largest equestrian complex in America – it’s a match made in lifestyle content heaven.
If you’re an editor looking to beef up your fine food, fine wine, fine travel and fine living content with an eye on that new AHP Media Awards Equestrian Lifestyle Journalism class, let me be your boots on the ground for the 3rd annual Ocala Food & Wine Festival, November 3-5, at the World Equestrian Center in Ocala, Florida.
I will be covering this celebrity chef-led celebration with three days of culinary competition; beer, wine and spirits education; and samples of extraordinary cuisine by chefs including Top Chef (and amateur rider in her native Venezuela) Lorena Garcia, James Beard Award-winning chef Tim Hollingsworth, and the Food Network’s Eat, Sleep, BBQ pit master, Rashad Jones.
That includes Friday night’s Barbecue, Bourbon & Blues with live-fire cuisine and live music by the Honey Hounds; and celebrity chef-led breakout classes and cooking demos on Saturday before the evening’s multi-course Celebrity Chef Dinner on the unforgettable outdoor terrace at Stirrups Restaurant in The Equestrian Hotel.
Tailgating ideas? BBQ tips? How to get the best bang for your brisket? Easy finger foods to pack and share at the trials or on the trails?
Horses can put the H in hospitality. Let’s give your readers something to savor.
